Go to a used game store and ask them to polish it for you. Many of them have machines that will buff off scratches. The process can't be done again and again, obviously €" you'd strip the protective layer off €" but it should work.

You can also pick yourself up a GameDR CD repair kit.

Allows you to do polish the surface yourself.I have had many CD's saved by having that around.Its a nice tool to have around just in case you do need.

or maybe a brillo pad can help, try polishing it up with that.

Good luck on the cd repair.

Polishing works fine as long as lower surface of CD is scrached. If it is the top one, data is lost (obviously). That's why CDs should ALWAYS be put down with it's top surface UPWARDS (and not the other way around as SOOO many people are doing).
