We use the DVD Dr. by Digital Innovations. It repairs CDs and DVDs (and
video games, etc.). It works pretty well, although I've never been able
to get a CD or DVD buffed back to the original shine like it says you
can. The instructions are easy to follow and it works if you follow the
instructions. It's a bit unnerving the first few times you use it - you
really are taking the top layer of the CD off - but, if the DVD Dr.
doesn't work on it, you would have to replace it anyway. It only works
on abrasions, light, medium and deeper scratches - it doesn't work on
severe damage like gouges and heavy scratches or warping . . .

Subject: [Videolib] Question About Disc Dr


Hello All,

I was thinking about getting one of these disc repair devices and was

wondering what others thought of them first. Our DVD collection is a

bit over 300 titles, and nearly all are in good shape(knock on wood).=20

If I had a larger collection or a serious problem, I would be looking

for a serious professional disc resurfacer, but our need is not there

yet. I just want something easy that can handle light scratches. Any

suggestions. thanks.
