These are'nt ordinary CD's little buddy. Your games are gone- you might as well start using them as coasters because they cannot be repaired. I've tried everything and even if you get the game to play, it will ivnvariably freeze up on you at a crucial point in whatever game you're playing..Making you want to throw your controller at the TV...

Worth a punt though, got nothing to lose by doing it...and it could work if it's just superficial scratch on the plastic of the disk rather than the shiny metallic part, any scratches there and the data is gone, but a quick buff of the plastic might sort out a small scratch.

I don't know about using glass cleaner though, but filtered water and fair bit of pressure after the abrasive can work pretty well.
