Those CD Doctor "cleaners" (they actually do a minor
resurfacing of the disc) have rescued several discs
I've used cdparanoia to recover badly damaged audio disks. Are there
not similar programs for data disks?
Dont know how true it is but the local paper here was running a story
about some students using goverment condoms to fix scratched cd's. They
worked for 3 uses. Never tried it as most of the stuff i have on cd i
can get again.
Ignoring the inevitable ribald humour arising from the concept - "supersized,
for all the government d*ckheads" ... ;)
A friend of mine suggested using a silver polisher to resurface the plastic
when the scratches prevent it from being readable, but I've never tried it.
