Help, is it possible to recover tracks on a cd that has been badly scratched, either by means of polishing out the scrath or by wy of a software package that can read beyond the scrtch

use "cd x rescue" to read the disk - then copy to your hard disk and then burn to new cd. there are products that can repair damaged cd's but iv never tried any so cant comment on how successful they are - maybe someone else has tried them ? cd x rescue was a free on last months pc advisor cd.

There is a considerable amount of evidence on the internet that GENTLY rubbing the affected area with toothpaste, may recover it enough to read and perhaps transfer to a new medium.

There are also commercially made packs, that claim to be able to recover scratched disc's.

I haven't come across any software making those claims.

bit expensive depends what the disk is worth to you or how many kids you have :o))
