Fix a scratched disc by sanding and polishing the surface using sandpaper and plastic polishing techniques. This technique does the same thing as a resurfacer but costs less than $10 total.

Products I used:

To smooth out the disc surface: 3M Auto High Grit Sand Paper 1500-2500 grid: http://amzn.to/1ugce4K

3M Rubbing Compound I used: http://amzn.to/1uLu16h

With those two items, you can probably fix 200 discs AND restore some head lights.

*Note* Bluray discs only have about 100um of hard coating and sanding it may not be a good idea.

<p>I would have never thought to do this since it seems so harsh and the exact opposite of how we are taught to treat a disc. Thank you.</p>
<p>Makes complete sense right? You're welcome! =D</p>
<p>Great idea! I've polished a few headlights, but never thought to use the same materials on a disc. Thanks!</p>
<p>You're welcome! =D</p>
