Thanks for the tips guy. The scratched disc problem was uppermost in my mind because I had a couple of audiobook CD's from the public library, where else, that hung up yesterday. I fixed the first one by simply carefully cleaning it with a TV and computer screen cleaning solution from Best Buy and a microfiber cloth. The second one required more effort. I ran it through a disc cleaning device that I bought years ago. You put the disc on a turntable and close a lid with a circular cleaning cloth attached to it over the disc. The machine has gears so that the cleaning cloth can be wiped over the surface of the disc while both it and the disc rotate, each in its own axis. I first moistened the cloth with the Best Buy cleaning solvent. That worked but it took awhile. I will investigate the toothpaste and Meguiar's PlastX solutions, too.
