    Just noticed today that a few of my DVDs (both ones I have recorded and pre-recorded) are getting a little grubby.

    What's the best way to clean them?

    Are any of these cleaning kits good or is a cloth or something the best idea?

    Also, are any of these kits which claim to clean the actual lens in the recorder/player a good idea or not?

    Thanks

    Hi

    I would avoid these unless they come recommended by the manfacturer.

    CDs and DVDs should be cleaned from center outwards. Use a camera lens cleaning cloth (i.e. Pentax Micro-fibre) and breeth on the disc to form condensation, this will help reduce static allowing any dust to be removed to the cloth more easily.

    If the discs are very soiled, use of bought CD/DVD cleaning kit may be needed to get rid of dust and fingerprints.

    Regards

    Philip
