Damages, scratches etc.

Postby King Of Nowhere on Wed Nov 21, 2007 10:41 am

looked through the section, couldn't find anything related surprisingly.
If I'm wrong, link & lock.

Two questions:

1. Can you damage a dvd by leaving it on pause for too long?

2. Does anybody have any good methods for making badly scratched disks playable again?

1. No.
2. http://www.ehow.com/how_892_repair-scratched-cds.html

Scratches on the bottom of discs are just a case of wiping, polishing and re-finishing the surface. Scratches to the top of discs are more likely to actually corrupt the data permanently.
