    Anyone know a good place that does disc resurfacing. I want to get some scratches and marks off a PS2 game.

    Lol, guess I should have searched first, although only 1 of those has any usful info in it. I think I'm gonna go with scratchbusters as I just found out my friend got a prepay envelope already that came with an amazon order.

    Bump.

    Any updates on who offers the cheapest disc repair? High Street if possible (as I can't be assed to send it away, only for it to get lost in the post).

    edit: and should I have any trouble in getting Dreamcast discs repaired?

    GAME is now also doing disk cleaning. £3.00 a disk from what I can remember.

    Maplin actually do a disc repair kit thing for £9.99 so buy one of these are you could repair all the disks you want. It regrinds and polish's the surface.

    It looks fairly pucker but I have not had chance to get one yet and try it out.

    Yeah the Gamestation near me has one as well. I want to get two discs I brought recently that are lightly scratched done.

    Has anyone had their discs done at Gamstation and had any problems with them after?

    Best places for disc repair at the mo?

    My ladyfriend's lovely little nephew and niece have scratched Lego Batman 2/Lord of the Rings to buggery.

    Do CEX offer a repair service? I can't see anything on their website.

    would it be cheaper to buy the same game second hand at CEX?

    A few GAME stores do repairs, they were doing them at 3 for £5 last time I checked a couple of years ago.
    It varies store by store though depending on the quality of machine.

    As far as I know, there is no real option out there for the average consumers. I think the big repair companies may have contracts with music magpie, CEX etc, so don't bother with low quantities anymore.

    I remember a few companies used to do repairs online, "discs like new" were excellent, but they've become unresponsive recently.
