  • me moron installing Iguidance 2

    After waiting for a week, finally I got my Gps package. I did something stupic like moving the cd rom drive while the cd is spinning fast. Now Cd 1 all scratched up, so I called Semsons & Co where I bought mine. They told me that I have to go through the whole returning and exchange process. In the meanwhile, non of my computers recognized the Cd anymore, until I tried it at work this morning, but there are couples files it can’t seem to read. Now I got the Gps mouse but no software to test it…..****es me off…..
    I am a moron…..lesson 1, never moved the cd while it spining fast....
    Wonder if u guys know iguidance main website that I can download the missing files? Cuz I don’t want to wait for another 2 weeks…
    Thanks…in advances…….

    Try using some toothpaste on a damp, very soft towel (baby towel). Wipe the CD in a circular motion a few times and rinse the CD. Repeat until scratches are gone.

    I accidentally scratched a friends Maya 5 CD and this worked.

    DO NOT USE PAPER TOWELS OR TERRY CLOTH TOWELS. THEY WILL SCRATCH IT MORE THAN IT IS ALREADY.

      I have also used toothpaste to buff out scratched CDs and DVDs. It's semi-abrasive, leaves swirl marks on the discs but they work better. Also, automotive rubbing compound will do the same thing.

          How, exactly, did this happen? If I were a suspicious fellow, I'd think this story sounded awful fishy.

            Yeah, if you didn't finish your post off with "where can I download it" I probably would have believed you

              I once saw Jet Lee remove a disk from a cd before it spun down,
              but he's fast.

                    did you scratch the top side too? if you did.. you're SOL.
                    Spin Doctor is actually shaving your CD so it wouldn't have any deep scratch. if you wanna try, keep using spin doctor until you lvl the whole CD to the depth of the scratch. That should work.
