I've used furniture polish on DVD's. Spray and then wipe in a circular motion until dry. The DVD was so badly scratched that it was worth the risk and it worked beautifully.

Any store (walmart) that sells the cd's,dvds will have a scratch remover product. It comes in a paste or a liquid. It runs around $4

Try your local video rental store. They have resurfacing machines. The store in my town resurfaces them for $2.00 a piece.

How can you fix a scratch on a CD?

Starting from inside of the CD working on outwards in a straight line (no circles) you de-scratch it by using a little bit of rubbing alcohol on a paper towel. When you are done it is really clean and the scratches are gone. Now I have never done this, but I saved this info for when I have need of it. (08/04/2006)

I once fixed a lightly scratched CD using a dollop of cleaner for ceramic ranges, carefully applying it with a soft microfiber cloth from the inside center towards the outside edge, gently polishing in straight lines (no circling with the cloth) and wiping the cleaner off again.
This might only work for lighter scratches, since I don't think you can do anything about deeper scratches (08/05/2006)

If you wish to fix a CD scratch the easiest and most effective way is to get clothes washing detergent and dilute it with water. Soak a paper towel in this solution and rub the CD from the center to the edge. You will cause more damage if you try to rub the CD in a circle motion. (09/11/2008)
