Well, that depends on what kind of damage. If the just small scratches, you cound try a CD repairer

Hi!

They make several kinds of CD repairers. If it's VERY light scratches, you can even try fixing it yourself by rubbing the CD very quickly in a straight back and forth motion on a pair of
blue jeans, turning it and rubbing again after about 20 rubs.
(pretend you're warming your hands on your jeans, but have the
CD in one hand)
I've gotten many of my ancient cd's working like that
It's a poor man's fix :)
Just if you go with a CD repairer, dont use the liquid brush on stuff.
Get an actual scratch remover kind that's a machine.
It turns the CD and grinds off a small portion of the plastic so poof!
Scratches gone!
I've gotten them to work on very deep scratches so whatever you do
if the CD is important, dont throw it away!

:wink:

If you can find a copy of "DVD X-Rescue", it's easy. works with CD's as well as DVD's. The company that sold it, 321 Software, has been sued out of existence, but you may be able to find a copy on a storeshelf somewhere. It was also bundled with DVD X-Copy, Platinum edition as well.

You can try Handy Recovery 1.0 or 2.0. 1.0 is available on simtel.net and you can get the trialware 2.0 from www.handyrecovery.com.
