It scrubs the surface of the CD and then polishes it out to look and function like new. It's great for non-serious scraches (it says that only certain depth scratches can be removed) and other surface imperfections. Works very well.
There are two (2) versions. Motorized and the old Hand Crank type. Motorized (electric), is of course more expencive>
It really helps. Just yesterday, I wanted to rip an red hot chilli peppers cd to mp3 on my HDD, and well, I got it from a friend who said it wouldn't play
True unenough, EAC couldn't read any of the tracks.
I used the game doctor on it for 10 minutes, only I have the one where you spin manually, the electric one does a better job, and out of the, I think 14 tracks, instead of being able to rip 0, I ripped all, except one track that wouldn't work.
From 0 to 13, I think that's quite good, and the CD had horrid scratches.
A great thing to do if you sell games too, I went to store, said the would give me 14 for the scratched CD, went home, doctored it, and they gave me 22
