I'm sure most people looking at this particular subforum have, at some point in their life, suffered from scratched disc syndrome. Either you've purchased a used CD or DVD that was somehow damaged, or you... did the damaging yourself. Regardless, it needs to be fixed, and you are the fixer. How do you repair your scratched CDs and DVDs? Home remedies are welcome, regardless of how bizarre they are, assuming they actually worked. I bought a repair kit, myself. Squirt a bit of special gel on the disc, then put it in a disc tray and let it spin for a little while until the gel settles. It worked well enough. The disc could at least play from that point on, where it couldn't before, though some bits of the movie were a little garbled.
