Recently I discovered 2 of my most favorite CDs were scratched by my Sony CD-Rom. The scratches are some very thin circular scratches. 1 cd has just 1 scratch, the other has 2. They are very visible. I don't think they are deep.
After the discovery, I played them again and found both of them have about 1 minute or less no longer playable. I was distraught by this. After searching the internet for ways to fix them, I learned about the toothpaste method and the Plexus one.
I tried the toothpaste method on an unimportant burned cd but wasn't happy with the result because it left more scratch marks on the cd. This is not what I want. I am going to try Plexus.
But before I do so, let me ask you guys first: are circular scratches fixable? ("fixing" here means to have the cds become readable at least once again so that I can burn copies of them.) Most of the "good results" I heard from people fixing their cds with Plexus or by other methods were related to other kinds of scratches, not circular in particular.
Thanks anyone who may help
