is it true that if you put toothpaste, or something, on a scratched disc it can work. and is it true that Qhimm said this?

The idea is that it leaves a clear residue in the cracks and scratches which stops the laser diffracting so much so the error correction can handle it. It does work if you are careful and it has the plus side of making your cds smell nice and never get plaque

how to clean a CD with toothpaste:

1) put a small amount of water on the scratch, being very careful not to get the water near the edge, as water tends to wick between the plastic and ruin the foil.

2) taking a tiny dab of toothpaste on your finger scrub gently in circles where the scratch is. After a while the toothpaste will start to dry and flake. Add a tiny bit more water/paste when this starts to happen.

3) The idea behind it is that toothpaste is a fine abrasive. (Take some and rub it between your fingers, you'll feel the "grit" to it.) It smoothes out the scratch's edges and makes it easier for the laser to pass, as opposed to a jaggy gouge that reflects the light at odd angles.

4) *WARNING* the wrong type of toothpase can stain the plastic or be to "gritty" and will make the CD worse. Please try on a garbage CD before you get the technique right

I suggest the pink Garbage CD with the black G on it. The one with "I'm just a girl" should work.

If only everyone in America would listen to Shock Rock all day. Then we would all have peace, love, and destruction. I hope it happens soon.

MOT(or fanboy, not sure who said it) is right.  Gamecube is totally gonna overrun sony's reign.  I've seen what it can do, and what ps2 can do, and gamecube definately overun's ps2 in almost every aspect.  Xbox is just gonna be gay, i mean come on, microsoft has no experience in the console gaming market.  Its gonna be stupid.  The only company and systems ill ever love forever is nintendo.  Nobody can change my mind, i hate all other systems except for nintendo brand.  Because as all nintendo fans know, mario can totally whip crash bandicoot, lara croft, and any other playstation mascot, to crappy old cream.  Nintendo TOP, everything else BELOW BOTTOM.  Goodnight.

                   -Lionheart

(the only cool playstation mascot is Squall, but actually, come to think of it, isnt playstation mascot. same with cloud because ff7 and ff8 came out for pc, so thats out the window!) (sony sucks)
