When your CDs or DVDs are all scratched up to hell, but you wanna keep’em, you got a few options. There’s the old abrasive method, where you pretty much buff and polish the plastic until the scratches have been filed away. Or the new method from company VenMill which melts the surface of the disc and allows it to be pressed smooth once more. The technique is OptoClear and will be implemented on their Skip-Away line of disc repair machines in June.
Sadly, repairing discs this way is not for the faint of wallet: one Skip-Away machine will set you back $250. At this price, you better be in love with that old Milli Vanilli CD.
