Fixing scratched CDs/ DVDs?

hey folks

well sometimes accidents do happen, and youre favourite CDs/ DVDs sustain wear and tear to the point where its skipping and has lost that quality

anyone know a good product?

i have since gone more cautious on the use of my CDs, opting to burn them and listening to the replicas rather than playing the originals

dont have a dvd burner sadly, but one of those would be nice

I've heard of toothpaste helping. Rub a thin layer of toothpaste on the disk and then wipe the disk off with a soft clean rag from center to edge. Apparently the paste will fill the scratches and able it to play again, but honestly I've never tried it...

I tried that once...it didn't work...

My CD was minty fresh though.
