Is there any solution to this problem?
There are several myths to recover a scratched CD or DVD. One of the most popular claims that smearing a little toothpaste on the surface of the disc and gently rubbing it with a very delicate cloth (never toilet paper) will fix those annoying compact disc imperfections.
As detailed by Fayerwayer, another method to save data from a disk requires the use of isopropyl alcohol, which you should pour on the surface and rub it (in a circular way) with a microfiber cloth. You can buy this item in stores; in case you wear glasses, they must have given you one.
Finally, another solution for scratched CDs or DVDs is to use liquid polish, a product that contains silicone and is used to shine surfaces. It will suffice to take a few drops and begin to polish gently; in case it still doesn’t read, you can apply a second or third layer.
It is worth noting that these methods will only work with minor scratches that have been caused by constant use. If it’s a scratch from scissors or a blade, it probably won’t work. It is also not recommended for discs that have been bent or damaged by moisture.
