DVD Issue
Dear swampies,

A friend of mine burned me a DVD with data on it, but when I got it, I noticed it was highly scratched. Windows (and linux) both recognize the disc and I can even open some of the files, but some of the others seem to be unreadable. Is there a program that can coax out the data by ripping it to an .iso and then reburning it? Are there commercial solutions to clean these types of discs? I would rather not bother him with burning another disc so, if you find it in your heats, could you hook a swampie up?

I think it'd be easier to just bug your friend for a new copy. The amount of work you'd probably put into getting the scratched DVD to work sounds like more trouble than it's worth. Just get a new copy and make sure not to scratch it.

or polish the dvd.

Indeed. Brasso works wonders on scratched discs.

Isopropyl Alcohol seemed to do the trick :D

Some people tell me if you put plain tooth paste on the scratches then rinse it the disc will work, I haven't tried it so I'm just throwing it out there

That does work, but not nearly as well as some Brasso.
