I've several ps2 disks that don't work due to scratches.
I've seen several repair kits on ebay etc, but the question is ,do they work?
if anyone has any experience with these things I would appreciate your advice.
I've since learned that rubbing them with T-cut (a car cleaning product) gets rid of the scratches, I had 4 games that didn't work. Now after giving them a good rub with T-cut they all work. Amazing.
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...
