Amazon.com Product Description

Finally there's an easy and sophisticated way to repair skipping and distorted CDs, CD-ROMs, DVDs, PlayStation, other computer games, and other optical discs. The "Doctor" products, the world's first consumer CD and DVD scratch repair devices, are the result of nearly five years of research and development using some of the most sophisticated scientific and engineering tools available. Their radial resurfacing action eliminates the effects of harmful abrasions, scratches, and other surface imperfections from the play (shiny) sides of discs. This patented process automatically provides the perfect control so that the right amount of material is removed from the disc every time. The result is that your "Doctor" will repair the primary causes of skipping and distortion and restore optimum performance to your discs. The "Doctors" are not designed to repair gouges, label side damage, or severe abuse such as warping. ... Read more

Features

  • Restores discs to optimum play performance
  • Virtually as effective as industrial machines
  • Repairs approximately 50 damaged discs
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Limited lifetime replacement warranty

Our son got a playstation game for his birthday, the first time he tried to play it, it wouldn't work because of scratches we found on it. After talking to quite a few people we bought a skip doctor. We tried it on his game and it worked perfectly. This product is not for smudges or fingerprints, it is for scratches. We were told it actually takes a "layer" off to get rid of the scratches. The buffing just takes a few minutes. We have not tried it on a DVD or an audio cd, but it works great on playstation games.

As with most products, the efficacy of the Skipdr depends on how well the instructions are followed. Go to www.skipdr.com and read all the instructions before you proceed. This is a great device if used correctly. I have repaired playstation 2 games that were not even being recognized by the system because of damage; now they work perfectly well. My only complaint is the quality of the resurfacing wheel. Mine was glued unevenly and fell apart after about twenty uses. So, I bought a new resurfacing wheel - no big deal! Note to the reviewer who complained about the residue on the CD: this is residue that the skipdr is removing from the CD and indicates it is being repaired (as you would have found out had you read the instructions!).

3-0 out of 5 stars Good idea, poor quality control
5 years of extensive research and development? Hah! It's a sanding wheel mounted on a hand held crank. It essentially works, removing most minor scratches from discs, but you can accomplish the same thing with 2,000 grit or higher sandpaper. Which is what the device basically is: a handheld system of gears attatched to a crank in a handheld plastic housing. A flexible wheel with a strip of finishing sandpaper glued on turns above the rotating CD tray, "sanding" the disc at a 90 degree angle from the rotation direction. It works in theory, but the one I bought suffered from numerous manufacturing defects, like gears that jammed internally due to inadequate lubrication, a CD tray with a retainer wall that was too high and sharp and consequently ripped the paper off the sanding wheel. I don't think it's an isolated case, as two replacement discs I bought were glued improperly at the overlapping seams and destructed within a few uses. Maybe they needed TEN years of R&D?

The Game Doctor repaired my A New Hope soundtrack like I wanted it to, and it doesn't skip a beat anymore. Unfortunately, there is not way to restore the beautiful appearance of a new shiny CD, and even the felt buffing leaves very small abrasions, which don't really affect playback apparently. I did a hi-rez scan of a repaired disc and you can't see the pattern or buffing. This is the way that a cd lens reads the CD--from a 90 degree angle.

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth it
I for one constantly need to fix disks becuase of small kids that are always over. Now i feel that buying the game again is a waste of time and money, this game doctor was [$$$] (usually a friend has one for you to borrow) but worth it. Its saved me over [$$$] for replacing games.

Ive had no residue or anythign left one my disks these people must have been ... or something becuase its simple: do it right it'll work.

Also i suggest keeping disks in a cd wallet. It prevents circular scratches on games and dvds espically. therefore you get more life out of your game doctor

BEWARE you must read the directions...your disk wont end up looking new but a design on the bottom somewhat like a swirley flower will appear but the game works. thats all i care about. this thing is worth every penny i suggest getting it.

I too care more about the disk working then what it looks like. ... Read more
