Anyone knows as remove marks circular scuffs caused by polishing.

CDs obviously, they look ugly with this thing... two of them just was "clean" with those "cheap clean machines", but looks with marks too.

I'm not too bothered with marks if the disc plays ok, but once I tried the toothpaste thing and it worked... oh, and stop "polishing" your CDs. if it ain't broke don't "fix" it.

How about stop being a spazz and treat your CDs with some goddamn respect so they don't get scratched in the first place.

Find a professional disc resurfacing machine and get them cleaned up, my local video shop had a really good one and the discs came out looking brand new [like mirrors]

usually those resurfacing machines are actually shavers. so they shave that top layer of cd off removing the scuffs and some scratches. So be wary of that. I've only used it for one cd that was bady scratched and for a video game. it worked, just makes them thinner and could eventually be weaker..

I'd imagine that'd only be an issue if you had them resurfaced several times.

Just do it once and make sure you take care of the discs afterwards.

it is if you have them done several times. I am giving a warning incase someone who isn't even sure what the machine does so that way they don't think they can continue on not caring about the care cause they can keep having it 'resurfaced' till it can't anymore. I think you can get it done about 3 times and it's extremely weak at that point.

I was thinking of doing exactly that...
A sander with a polishing bonnet + cutting compound [polish etc] works too ;)

You'll be waiting a decade to get your money back if you did.

How does anyone's cd's ever become so destroyed anyways? ...you call yourself a collector and your music looks like car floor artifacts? Christ!

My entire collection has been at the hands of a child now 6 1/2 years old... no gates, no bars, nothing to stop him from access, not a single mark on any of my cd's, LP's or tapes. My swords and sideshow statue collection all unhindered as well. ...taking care of something or paying attention or parenting or any number of actual practices requiring effort seems lost on people these days.

Everyone these days wants a fucking band aid solution. ...well fuck band aids and the filth that use them and leave them floating around the pool.

  • The question has been answered [actually it's been answered in other threads previously too]
  • too many 'not positive' comments
  • this is now locked.

Into Glory Ride!
