Depends on what you want to pay I purchased a motorised disc repair machine from Ebay  similar to the pic but mine came with lots more spare pads and polish for $50.00 worked great although I have found since Blu-ray discs tend to be a lot more scratch resistant I no longer use it but if you want a cheap repair kit rather than a machine you should find one online easy enough.

I have this local gameshop that sells used games they're so nice that they polished my games I bring in for free (of course I don't abuse their kindness). They have this really high-tech machine that polishes it and works perfectly. It even does wonders for CDs and DVDs (PS1&PS2 games etc.).

If you have a local used game shop maybe you can ask them to do that for your game? If they don't do for free then maybe ask to pay for a small fee?



I've had reasonably good luck with the game dr. https://www.ebay.com/itm/203022476903?chn=ps&mkevt=1&mkcid=28 Depends on how deep the scratches are though

That a great suggestion even if they charge it's got to be cheaper than a machine like mine that is pretty much the same as the ones game shops use or even a repair kit the OP also has a place to go if he ever needs the service in the future.

bruh I just had a flashback of my friend telling me to put toothpaste on the disc and flush it in the toilet I swear I've heard the weirdest remedies as a kid, and somehow they actually worked like 50% of the time. (btw don't try this lmao)

Bought one on Ebay, Hope it works . I'm starting to think this is essential.

Best option. Go to a game shop that has a resurfacing machine. Home solution: Get some Brasso metal polish, put some on a cloth and lightly polish the surface until most surface cuts are gone.
