    Just go out and buy a basic CD scratch remover kit. I picked up a cheap one here in Australia for about $5 AUS and it removed a huge scratch out of one of my DVDs, which then worked fine.

    Step 1, don't scratch optical discs, or they won't work.
    I tell people to call around to the bigger used cd stores and ask how much to resurface a disc. In my city the stores charge $4-6cdn for it. Well worth it for say a console game or other expensive disc. I believe that blockbuster video can send them out for the resurfacing, that's what they do with their dvd's and console games, but that's here.

    I'll have to check at Blockbuster maximus7001, the disc I'm talking about are for X-box games that kids left face down on a hardwood floor:eek: . Anyway the disc doctor type stuff didn't work so I'll give Blockbuster a call.

    Fortunately, my son who is 6, handles discs with the same care I do. Even when I first got my dreamcast, he was almost 3. And has never scratched a disc yet, ever. With games that cost $80+ after tax, a series of lessons about proper care would be in order. My son knows full well that if that ever happened in my house, he would never get to use the machine again.
