We too have been considering the RTI machine, but I wasn't aware of the SkipDoctor. The only one I've been able to track down appreas to be a manual version.

Do you have more informattion on the electric version and where to buy it?

How many DVD's do you have in your collection?

We use the SkipDoctor, the electric model. It has already paid for itself.
Works on: compact discs, DVD's, CDROM's, Books on Compact Discs....
It's almost amazing.

I recently attended ALA in San Francisco where I saw a demonstration of the
DiskChek unit which checks, cleans and rejuvenates DVD's and CD's. (Now if
could only brew my morning coffee, I'd be sold!) Seriously, my question is
this - has anyone purchased this unit or do you know anyone who has? I find
in the contingent that is inordinately fond of DVD's but seriously doubts
whether we're going to get much bang for our buck - certainly not like we
did with
videos, some of which have circulated more than 500 times! I smell a
here. I know this listserve is not intended to discuss equipment although I
think this is a topic which would interest most of us. If you'd prefer to
answer me directly, please send email to
