The following article will give you the means to repair a scratch on a CD.

Things You'll Need

Filling in the scratch for playing your cd again

  • Place the damaged CD on a towel or cloth on top of a table.

  • Wipe the CD clean with a new rag or unused buffing cloth.

  • Apply a small amount of car wax to the scratch, rubbing it in carefully so that you fully fill in the crack.

  • Allow the wax to dry. Check the package for guidelines as far as drying times go. If there are none, then wait at least 30 minutes.

  • Buff the wax with the clean cloth, making sure you go with the length of the scratch, not against it.

  • Wash the disc with water once you can no longer see the scratch.

  • Allow the CD to dry, and then try it out in your player.
