Seems like spreading banana on it fixes it (it's not a joke) seems like it's true.

mayonnaise works too just use a little bit though if you use too much you're screwed.
use a papertowl and rub the mayonnaise on the skratchand then rub the rest off and let it dry and then your cd should work.

+ REP IF IT WORKS!

Just eat a banana and only leave like 2 or 3 cm.. then just rub it with the CD / DVD. I tried this with a scratched DVD a few days ago and it worked! takes a few seconds! then just clean the CD / DVD and it WILL work!

No lol. Well, it's up to you. But I gave a scratched DVD to my grandpa and he told me it was not working... so I tried to fix it with some banana and it became as shiny as new, with no scratches... and the DVD worked fine!

Well, that is my story :) I did not tell you to purposely scratch DVDs! Don't make to scratch the DVDs too deep (or in a circle form) because that might not be fixable!
