    I use a motorized CD Dr. It works great! 50 bucks at EB. But worth the money.

    I've had a hand-crank skipdr (or CDdr or DVDdr; they're all the same, actually) for a few years, and it's been a lifesaver for some of my CDs.

    As long as the scratch is on the the optical side--i.e., the underside--it can probably be fixed. But a scratch on the label side is hopeless if it penetrates the data layer. The data layer is much closer to the label side than the optical side, which is why that side, ironically, is more delicate.
