I’m sure that, like myself, many of you have a small (or not so small) pile of music CDs, CDRs and DVDs that will no longer play, thanks to them getting scratched. Isn’t it odd that even though this happens all the time we still lend the things to people when drunk?
But anyway, it seems there is a way to rescue the discs so that you can get the data/music/whatever on there back off it again. Its elegance lies in its simplicity.
