Try bathing  the CD  in some light acid say for e.g.....aqua regea !!!
It'll give u the opertunity of aquiring a new CD and
also you will be rid of the sentimental value attached to every free CD !

BTW Please ignore this if u dont know whats aqua regea.

and now some serious advice....dont try to play CDs with major scratches, or
theres anything sticking on them...
Mani had the misfortune of trying it once...and the drive BLEW UP on his
Believe me !!!!!

chao !
