    A friend from Australia, who has a daughter and hence severely scratched DVDs, has had some of his collection resurfaced.

    I have the same problem. Anyone know if it can be done here and by whom?

    Sorry to be so vague, but I do recall seeing a website recently which advertised prices for repairing scratched CDs/DVDs/PSgames/etc either singly or as a batch. It was a UK based company so should be out there somewhere.

    All they did was remove a fraction of a millimetre of the plastic which covers the recorded material. This is something you can do yourself with any abrasive cleaner like T-Cut, although not to the precise measurements like the pro's.
    Try Disk Doctor too which uses a fine grade (about 1200 or higher) wet n dry type abrasive paper on a rotating wheel, although the build quality of these units is a bit suspect for the price (~£30.00).

    I'll keep looking for the disk repairers.

    It costs about 3 quid to repair the discs by thatzdvd. I cannot vouch for quailty etc. because I've never used them for repairs but it sounds reasonable!!!!

    What's wrong with SkipDr.? Cheaper and (mostly) amounts to pretty much the same thing.

    Brasso metal polish works a treat, out of the 10 s/h ps1 games I bought that didn't work, repaired 9 of them.
