    This is what I use.

    It has an abrasive wheel but it's extremely fine grit. You spray it some water (comes with a spray bottle) and just pop it in. If it's a scratch you can clearly feel when you run your finger over it, you'll have to run it through a few times.

    If after say 6-8 passes, there's no improvement, then you're probably fucked.

    As you may know, the data is on a metallic layer just under the label, so if the label side is scratched, again, assume the position.

    Use toothpase if its scrached, dont use it just to clesn them!
    I would just use a damp choth and always wipe from the inside out(not round and round) some cd/dvds you can just wash them in water(not those cheep painted ones tho as the paint seems to get sticky and start comming off too)

    Make sure they are dry befor you put thim back in your comp(for obvious resins) lol

    Hope that helps :)
