    Ok, this is may not be exactly on-topic, but I've been seeing lots of those do-it-yourself CD cleaning kits lately.

    I have three kids, and over 50 educational CD's they use to death, and many of them are way beyond the fingerprints and peanut-butter stage.

    I have a whole stack that no longer play because they get piled up, books get put on top of them, and they're just too scratched up.

    Does anyone have any experience with these gadgets? Are they worth the $20?

    There's a used CD store nearby that will buff a scratched CD and fix it up real nice, but they charge $4 a pop...

    Any suggestions?

    I have the DRrepair device...seems it was about $30.00...worth it's weight in gold...I have used to clean audio CD's and data CD's and it works great!!

    The information stored on a CD is at the top, or under the label of a CD, the bottom that gets scratched is the plastic only, a good buffer restores the shine to your CD so it can be read properly.

    I have cleaned game CD's that wouldn't install anymore, and had the work great after cleaning...go for it... :) Rhett
