Any way to fix scratched DVDs?


Recommended Posts

Most of the DOH seasons are double sided DVDs, and it always seems that the side up seems to get scratched or damaged. There's one side of a disc on Season 1 that won't play at all. And the first time I opened Season 3 yesterday, there was something sticky on the disc. I got the sticky junk off of it, but damaged it in the process. Now one episode skips. Is there a way to buff out the damage or fix it somehow? I still am angry that you can't buy any movies or shows in VHS. If they had released the episodes in EP or SLP on a T-160 tape, you could fit a full season on 2 tapes. Picture quality may not be quite as good, but with a VHS tape at least it will play all the way through. And it's very hard to damage a tape because there's nothing exposed. And VCRs last much longer than a DVD player anyway.

There actually are DVD-fixing or cleaning kits. I've even seen a couple at Walmart. Personally I like DVDs, they don't get wore out with usage as long as you're gentle with 'em and don't scratch 'em up.

Although I do admit to watching each season all the way through in the first thirty days when I could still return it if there were any skipped eps on a disc... and I did replace a couple sets... but finally I got a full set. Which I'd guard with my life... LOL. Just kidding.
