Didn't work for me. The result scratched CD's DVD's and other plastics. Recommend caution if you are going to try this.

use BRASSO it's a brass cleaner it works!!!!!

it's a FAKE ... watch the video ... it goes the wrong way...
sorry for my english...

WARNING THIS IS ABSOLUTELY FAKE! DON'T TRY THIS! ... Need a proof? Look at 1:34 when he is inserting the disc ... 1. why does it close by itself and THEN he is pushing the button? It's backwards everything!

As a member of Ubernet (disc ripping group) I have repaired scratches on over 100 CDs using Brasso metal polish/cleaner. Rub a small amount of Brasso all over the CD and allow it to dry. With a soft cloth, rub *from the centre to the edge of the CD* with medium pressure (rubbing parallel to the CD tracks increases the risk of a long scratch on a section of the track - avoid doing this). You may have to repeat this process a few times to get rid of stubborn scratches. if you can see light coming through the CD where the scratch is, it is not repairable. I have used a Dremel tool to speed up this process, but you need a soft cloth around the rotating head and a light touch for this. Remember, rub from centre to edge of CD *across* the tracks, NOT *along* the tracks. Good luck!
