    Go to Circuit City or a similar store... Probably even Target (or Wal Mart if you're so inclined)... and get yourself a CD Scratch Repair Kit... I got one by Maxwell, and I think Sony and a few other companies have them... Basically, you put this weird gel looking stuff on your CD where it's scratched, let it sit for a while, wipe it off with some supplied things, then clean it with some kind of Windex-like substance and wipe it off with the supplied things again...

    Really quite simple... Some of my horribly scratched CD's still skip, but not nearly as bad, and the ones that weren't too bad are good as new...

    The Maxwell kit was $15 I think and does about 100 CD's :cool1:

    find a place that deals in plexyglass and get there heavy scratch remover and there fine scratch remover workes better than any cd scratch repair that you can buy in the stores. also works great on dvd's :D :D

    If you're not a computer tard, rip all your CD's, just in case, listen to bruned mixes to save wear on the CD

    igot a cd repair machine thing from best buy. about 20 i think. you put it in this handheld contraption and turn the lever a bunch of times. rotates the cd real slow and buffs it out. works awesome.
