I'd personally recommend disk doctor ... the first DVD I tried with it was an old desktop coaster that I had had on my desk for about two years. There were no 'heavy' scratches in it but it was unrecognizable in any cd-rom. 5 times through DD and it worked perfectly. The only cd's/dvd it has not worked on are ones with heavy scratches.

I have tried various methods over the years, from T-cut to toothpaste ... but it's common sense really... anything slightly abrasive that will inevitably 'cut' into the protective layer will have some effect, and improve or worsen the damage/scratched media. I even used a professional buffing machine once and that worked like a charm, but not everyone has access to equipment like that.

I guess it all depends on how deep the damage is...
