How To Repair A Damaged CD
Whilst CDs are quite hardy, they can actually of course get damaged by scratching, or severe built up of dust and dirt.
This can cause them to skip or in some instances render totally useless. But there are always things to try before throwing them away.
One simple thing to do is to clean the surface with a cloth and water, with a little very mild detergent and then wash off with plain water thoroughly. This is a good treatment for dust, dirt and grime on the CD.
If you have some scratches on the disk that are causing skipping or preventing it playing correctly, then it may be worth taking to a specialist music store that often has a machine called a refinisher which works on the disk and can be very effective at repairing it.
