there are disc buffers available but they are pretty useless if there is a descent scratch.
Take the disc to your local video / dvd rental store & ask them if they have an eight stage buffer. this thing will cut the disc down in 8 steps till the scratch is no more & no harm to the data.

It may also work better in another CD unit if you have one available to try

Hello,

I've actually found in the past that PC-clene wipes or even baby wipes do quite a good job.

There might also be a problame with the lens in the cd player???
You can use cd lens cleaners from various stores.

Hope this helps!!!

I tried several other suggestions and all failed. I then tried the Baby Wipes and they worked like a charm.
Thanks so much to all the others who offered input.
