so I have a game, it got scratched up pretty badly...I'm just trying to figure out what would be the best way/device to remove the scratches off the disc.

Thanks

I generally use toothpaste and a soft cloth. Try this one at your OWN risk!

LOL!

Actually, I just use regular crest, and it works miracles, if you don't believe me, take a disc that you don't give too much about, spread a LIGHT coating on the disc, with a papertowel, then let it dry. Once it is dry, lightly buff with a clean cloth, and you'll see the results.

Also... Furniture Polish, i.e. "Lemon Pledge" works wonders as well!

You do not need a fancy CD cleaning machine.

Use a soft cloth, tissue, or paper towel moistened with water and mild
detergent if needed. Wipe from center to edge - NOT in a circular motion.
NEVER use any strong solvents. Even stubborn
spots will eventually yield to your persistence. Washing under running
water is fine as well.

Gently dry with a lint free cloth. Do not rub or use a dry cloth to clean
as any dirt particles will result in scratches. Polycarbonate is tough
but don't expect it to survive everything. Very fine scratches are not
usually a problem, but why press your luck?
