I did a clean reinstallation of Windows 2000pro and wiped out my Office 2000. I have the CD and keys/serial numbers, but there is a scratch on the CD and my drive won't read it. Does anyone know any options I might try to reinstall???

Thanks!

Thanks... I totally forgot about that option. In the mean time, is there any way to install before I get the CD via snail mail? I need to get back to work asap and not being able to reinstall MS Office was quite unexpected. Thanks again for the input. :)

i was just on another forum and it was suggested if the scratch was not to deep to rub it with brasso from the centre of the disk to the outside not in a circular motion
then rinse it off and dry it carefully before using

most computer warehouse stores sell CD buffing devices that should repair most non-gouges. There are also a handful of companies that sell a 'liquid polymer' repair kit for about $20 USD
