  • Reapir that scratched dvd

    Hey Folks,
    Today i wept

    I was given a *VERY BADLY* scratched dvd.it was scratched only on the laser read side and i took it to the video 2000 store and payed 2 dollars for it to be polished in their fancy mahcine.
    it whirred and buzzed for 60 seonds and returned me the dvd...

    it did nothing

    so a hunting the net i went and read about brasso the metal polish.
    i got me some of it and scrubbed my fingers to the bone on the plastic and removed the scratches.
    tried to copy with nero.no go.kept getting errors :-(
    polished again.
    nero again
    no go
    tried alcohol 120
    copied and reburnt all ok.
    all data verifyied and all ok!

              i was checking if you only ran the alcohol data verification, because it can be as flakey as hell and can mean **** all in comparison to actually trying to extract the zips. could be corrupt zips all accross :S
