5.0 out of 5 stars at last, a disc repairer that works 15 Sep 2009
This repaired some VERY badly damaged DVDs. It left the discs looking much better than discs I've tried fixing with other repair creams, but unlike those other systems this actually got them playing again.

5.0 out of 5 stars SkipDr saved my DVD!!! 21 April 2010
Verified Purchase
I wasn't sure whether this product was going to help me given the wide variety of reviews but I took a chance. One of the discs of a rather expensive box set was "resurfaced" thanks to my baby boy. It didn't play in any DVD player. Before I opt for a homemade method I gave SkipDr a spin. It took three treatments but the disc is back to life with no indication there was ever a problem. The scoring on the surface of the DVD which is mentioned in other reviews is not at all as bad as I thought it would be. Follow the instructions carefully and I'm sure Skip Doctor will work for you.

I've tried a number of different solutions when it comes to repairing DVDs (including manually polishing with Brasso and similar hand-cranked tools that polish in a circular motion rather than radially) and I've had the best results with the SkipDr. It hasn't been able to fix every disc I've tried but it has helped me with a most scratched discs that were previously unreadable, and it's much quicker and less messy than manual polishing attempts.

The device's wheel polishes from the centre of the disc outward. This leaves radial marks on the surface of the disc (it will not look "like new", and if the original scratch was restricted to a small part of the disc it will probably look worse than it did before being run through the SkipDr). However, DVD players will typically cope with this sort of mark much better than they will with a circumferential scratch that is aligned with the data track, and the SkipDr does a good job of smoothing out those scratches. It may however take a few cycles to repair deeper scratches, and very deep scratches may be beyond the SkipDr's capabilities - a recent second-hand purchase had two deep circumferential scratches (presumably scratched by the previous owner's DVD player's disc tray or similar) and it took eight full cycles through the SkipDr to render it 100% readable but it was still significantly less hassle than having to return the disc to the shop.

If you have a DVD collection and buy discs from those who may not take particularly good care of their discs then the SkipDr is worth having as a quick and convenient tool to try to fix discs.

2.0 out of 5 stars Minimal imrovement 8 Oct 2011
The product is reasonably well made and professional looking and comes well packaged. However, it does not repair moderately to highly scratched CDs and appears to have an effect similar to that of a couple of minutes polishing with a cloth and some Brasso 150ml, metal polish. If you do decide to use the Brasso option made sure to polish radially - centre to edge and back in a straight line - rather than in circles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent piece of kit 1 Aug 2011
By veejay
The Skip Doctor repaired DVD's/CD's that were preveiously unusable (even though other systems have failed).
With some extremely badly scratched discs I tried them out in the DVD/CD player and where necessary repeated the repair process - I have had 100% success on getting the discs playable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solved my problem 25 Jan 2011
By George
I am very happy to have the Kinect Adventures disk that the XBox broke fixed. It took two tries though, after the first try it still did not work but after the second try the game was read by the XBox.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wow!! Fixed all scratched CD's and DVD's 27 July 2012
Verified Purchase
Have a 3 year old son who had scratched favourite CD's and DVD's when caught using them like a duster to clean the table!! Thought they were bin fodder but decided to see if any chance to get some use out of them especially our little boys favourite Thomas the Tank engine DVD's.Were sceptical any thing fixing them but worked a treat!! Brilliant at fixing badly scratched discs!!!Some very badly scratched DVD's needed 2 or 3 cleans before working again as new. Would have given 5 stars but the instruction sheet is not clear or helpful as other reviewers had mentioned. Did not even see a discolouration in cleaned discs that others had mentioned. Only other downside is that the cleaning disc will last for 25 disc cleans before buying a replacement disc. However it soon out weighs the cost of buying replacement DVD's and CD's as even checked in Gamestation store and second hand CD /DVD stores that would take a disc and clean up for you at a cost of £3- 3.50 a disc. Well worth it!!

Awful, took my disc from scratched but working to totally ruined. A complete scam, I advise you to just send your discs away to be resurfaced professionally. Waste of money.

The SkipDr works by skimming the top surface of your disc. It does not clean your disc. It removes a very thin layer of the clear coating over the silver data layer. Read more
