How to fix scratches in any type of disk.

Everyone has the same problem, their cds or dvds wont play and they do not know how to fix them. Instead of going back out to return the disk or buying a new one you can buy a disk resurfacer. These handy gadgets work by scratching a layer of the cd away. So basicaly these are just sanding your cd to put in simpler terms. The machine is handheld and it takes around two minuits to fix one disk.

You can buy a resurfacer at most electronic stores like Bestbuy or even Walmart. Some cd shops like used cd stores even offer disk resurfacing.
