I don't know why people have no respect for material they can borrow freely at a library, but any cd two months or older is usually scratched pretty bad at my local library. Sometimes, so bad I can't play them without skipping on my standalone sony single disk cd player.

So whats the best way to remove scratches from library cd's? since its plastic can I just polish the cd with something?

"There's a store in Burlington, VT that has this homemade buffer that works on any cd-media better than anything I've ever seen.

@ Downtown Discs, formerly Disc-Go-Round."


How does this buffer work? Is it a polishing machine originally meant for a different task or something? I wonder which of these polishing solutions would work the best for scratched polycarbonate:

Emery Paper
Tooth Paste? I tried this with colgate, didn't work.
Brasso
Butane torch
Novus plastic polish
cd repair kits, bah dry.gif

I'm pretty happy with my liteon 24102b, and I don't want to put anything in the drive that would flake off.
