    Tips to recover scratched CDs

    Don't you feel like crying every time you add another disc to your pile of scratched discs. Trashing that disc which contained your favorite songs, pics, files, games or videos is not easy.
    Read-on, if you find yourself wishing for a miracle every time your fav CD is scratched


    Home Remedy :
    here's an easy home remedy, which might give you the desired results. Rub a small amount of toothpaste on the scratch and polish the CD with a soft cloth and any petroleum-based polishing solution (like clear shoe polish). Squirt a drop of Brasso and wipe it with a clean cloth.


     


    Technology to the rescue
    There are many softwares available on the net, which enable the recovery of the CD data. BadCopy Pro is one such software, which can be used to recover destroyed data and files from a range of media.
    Just a few clicks is all it requires to recover the disc from almost all kind of damage situation; be it corrupted, lost data, unreadable or defective.
    DiskDoctors is another popular company, which offers both software and solutions to recover data from a scratched CDs and DVDs

    General Tips:
    * Always wipe the CD from the center outward with stratight spoke-like strokes. Wiping CDs in circles will create more scratches.
    * Do not scratch the graphics layer as you cannot repair the disc. HINT: Hold the disc up to a light with the graphics layer facing the light source. If you can see light thru the scratches at any point then the disc may be irreparable and or exhibit loading or playing errors.
    * Clean your Disc players lens regularly with a suitable product to ensure optimal viewing pleasure.
    * Make sure to use a soft, lint-free cloth to clean both sides of the disc. Wipe in a straight line from the centre of the disc to the outer edge.
    * If wiping with a cloth does not remove a fingerprint or smudge, use a specialized DVD disc polishing spray to clean the disc.
    * Only handle the disc by its outer edge and the empty hole in the middle. This will help prevent fingerprints, smudges or scratches.

    Statistics:

    *Fingermarks/prints cause 43% of disc problems!
    * General wear & tear causes 25% of disc problems!
    * Player-related issues cause 15% of disc problems!
    * User-related issues cause 12% of disc problems!
    * PlayStation 2 machine scratches cause 3% of disc problems!
    * Laser rot (a manufacturer error) causes 2% of disc problems!
