    HELP! A friend scratched one of my original dvds, and now I can't back it up, cos dvd decryptor keeps getting stuck. Is there any easy way that I can polish the dvd to remove the scratch?

    I tried a scratch remover and it didn't work. I read this on another forum, wash the dvd with warm water and a touch of soft dish detergent (liquid), dry carefully. It's worked for me on the worst disks I have.

    Better still - get a lighter and flicker the flame over it very quickly, that always works for me. You can only do it once incase you start to affect the dye's

    hahahahahahahaha at wash & flame methods !!!

    If you have set DVD Decrypter to 'Ignore Read Errors' and it still has a problem ripping it , I think the disc is probably too damaged.

    All of above is obviously only my opinion: )

    use brasso liquid with cotton wool and gently go round the disc in circle's then wash with fairy liquid and shake dry .
    works for me as long as you dont press to hard

    He would need to rent it because his licensed copy is damaged.

    hee hee hee, good point forgot, it was the original.

    BTW, it is funny actually, we should start a thread in the safety valve to see what gender everyone is, it is nice to see we are not only blokes that are into this game - we should NOT assume this is just a mans game LOL

    Welcome St_Bambi......

    I had that problem with my sopranos dvd. dvd decrypter did not want to read it. so i switched to smartripper, it only went at 1.2x at the vob that the scratch was on but it did manage to go through. so in other words, Try smart ripper
