Dirty CD Disk

In trying to run my Office 2000 disk I get the message, "Disk may need cleaning" . Is there any effective
way to clean one of these disks?
thanks you.

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!!!

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.

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.
