    What is Skip Docter? Is it a computerprogram?
    Toothpaste? Crazy Finns :eyebrow:
     
  6. Skip Doctor Is not a program silly, how could a program clean a CD. :p It's like a machine thing, you put your CD in it and pull this spin this lever and it cleans it, anyways I dont knwo that much about it because it's my brothers and he never lets me use it, but it works great for about $20.

    toothpaste works well, or so I have heard.
     
  8. How do you use it? Like, coat it with toothpaste and let it dry, or wipe it off, or brush the cd with a toothbrush?

    If a cd is skipping temporarily licking it will clean it pretty well.

    Whats wrong with a decent Kleenex? dip it in some alcohol and wipe off the cd, should remove greece stains, dirt etc..

    And tell us about the toothpaste, I'm curious..
     
  10. MyRide the lighting CD doesn't play in anything but my computer :bawl:
    I guess it is time to get a Skip Doctor*, or a new CD.

    * I am pretty sure what these do is remove a layer of plastic, making the surface even again.

    Kinda, yeah. It resurfaces the CD. Toothpaste has gritty stuff in it which does the same thing. Most smalll lines and scratches that go out from the center don't usually effect the cd much. But ones that go somewhat parallel to the data really mess with it.
