I bought a CD/DVD cleaner from Maplins a few years ago and it recovers damaged discs quite nicely. It uses an abrasive to clean and polish the surface, so it can be used only a limited number of times on any given disc -- it will eventually grind through the plastic to the foil. The nearest I could find on the Web, also from Maplins, was this: <http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/cddvd-cleaner-and-restorer-polish-qm13p> It's visually different from the one I bought, and appears to be rather less aggressive. - -- Regards, Dave [RLU #314465] *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* dwnoon@××××××××.com (David W Noon) *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2 iEYEARECAAYFAlUDFrIACgkQRQ2Fs59Psv+MfgCgmZZESWyTwVOlFjBSzyQoXqO/ LBIAoMHClLFAKHUVg/S01kCCxIE0TMxc =3GJD -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
