    I almost never watch TV, unless I visit my family. Happened to be there Tues. morning to catch about 5 minutes of one of the morning shows talking about helpful hints.

    Anway, if you have a scratched DVD that skips badly, you can apply Pledge furniture polish (spray type) onto the back of the DVD, and then wipe it off with a clean rag. The skip will stop.

    Tried this tonight on a DVD I thought was a goner. It totally worked! [​IMG]Very cool!

    That machine I bought awhile back that you had told me about, might have been a memorex something? That worked for almost all of my prolem CD and DVDs.

    Have to try the other.

    Yea that memorex machine works great, just found this and thought it will work in a pinch.
