Hope I’m posting this in the appropriate section…
A while back I received some DVD-R’s in the mail. They were packed in paper sleeves with a sticky adhesive to seal them. Unfortunately, the adhesive-glue melted iduring shipment and became stuck on the discs!
The discs are all damaged in that they only play about 1/2 way through. Not surprising, as the glue is on the outer portion of the discs.
I’ve tried my best to get replacement copies of the discs, but it’s not looking too good now.
The glue seems to really be fixated on the surface of the disc, so I’m thinking some “advanced techniques” must be used to clean it, if it’s even possible at all. My biggest fear is that the glue has actually gotten beneath the surface, but I can’t be sure.
I’m afraid I’m going to damage the discs, so I haven’t done anything too extreme yet. I tried wiping one of them with a warm wet cloth, but it’s going to take more than that.
I would be forever grateful if someone has any bright ideas here. Thanks in advance.
