Second, if you have one that is truly scratched, a cloth buffing wheel in an electric drill or drill press will buff them out IF YOU USE THE RIGHT BUFFING COMPOUND. You must get a buffing compound designed for plastic. Do not use anything made for metal. McMaster-Carr has plastic buffing compound in a tube for a few dollars plus shipping. Works like a charm. I work at a library and I've fixed CDs and DVDs that appeared hopeless. Give it a try, you might be surprised.
For small scratches, put a dab of peanut butter on your finger and polish. Wipe clean with a coffee filter. Seemed to work well on my test disc.
