Re: Is there any way to get scratches off disks?
Really? Well, here is an interesting article:
“Q: Are Blu-Ray Discs Repairable? If yes…How Deep of a Scratch can you repair?
A: Yes, however it is important to know how Blu-Ray differs from other discs.
Note that the Blu-Ray has the least amount of protection when compared to ANY other format FAR LESS!.
1). A Blu-Ray disc has only an 8% Protection layer before you can scratch (from read side) into the actual data layer. This layer is Pure Hard Coat material, and is not made from standard polycarbonate like all other disc formats, since it is hard coated and must be repaired differently.
2) DVDs & HD-DVDs Have up to a 50% Polycarbonate protection layer (from read side) that can be scratched and repaired. (Double sided DVDs have 25% per side)
3) CD-ROMs and CDR discs, have a 99% Polycarbonate protection layer (from read side) that can be scratched and repaired. “
Back to Ratchet, what kind of disk is it?
blu-ray discs have a protective coating that prevents scratches very well
the coating on a Blu-ray disc is over 100 times more scratch-proof than a DVD
the data on a Blu-Ray disc is closer to the surface (than a DVD or CD) and also true is the far better protective coating on a Blu-Ray disc (than a DVD or CD). http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080228120556AAsFVNU
