    CD scratch repair

    okay, so using EAC to rip my cd's i realized that i have a lot of scratched cds in my collection. now, they arent too badly scratched, but enough so that my puter cd-rom drive trips when it hits one of the scratches. has anyone here had any experience using the cd scratch repair products that are out there. i know there are a few, and off the topof my head i remember one that was a wipe on wet, let dry, and wipe off dry. the other one i remember was a green wheel with flexible "fingers" sticking out that used some fluid to fix the scratches (it spun radially across the cd).

    i dont know if any of these things actually work, but i want to get clean rips of my cds, and some arent going to cooperate in their present condition.

    thanks

    maybe you could try another CD-ROM drive first if you can, if your CD-ROM has some milage on it already.....

    might do the trick?

    my computer is pretty new... only about 6 months old, so the cd is not that used. it is a dvd rom though, would that make it more sensitive to the scratches? my slave drive is a cd-rw drive, i might try to use that one, and see the results. im pretty sure it reads at a slower rate, so that might help the ripping.

    i will try it tonight. i also might go out and pick up a repairer somewhere.

    anyone else with some ideas....

    my own experience with the disk dr spinny things is that they are EVIL!@# scratched the mofo out of a disc that was slightly scratched, wouldnt read by anything. i dont know, maybe the one i got was just fux0rd to start with.

    Dr. Docter works

    I have the motorized version of the disk dr. I have used on most of my cds. Some of them had pretty bad scratchs in them. It does a good job. It will not make the disk shiny and new looking you will see the polish marks but they dont affect the readability of the disk.
