Damaged $30 DVD--Repair?

A few pieces of the refractive surface on my Full Metal Panic! Disc 2 is... missing. The entire FMP! DiscSet is among one one of my most prized possesion, especially considering my finances are a bit tight. Is there a way to repair refractive-shedding by say, CD Doctor or similar products? Or is said disc as good as gone, and I should just pay $20-$30 more for a replacement? Any help is appreciated.

Not that i know of. Disc doctor and other products like it work buy grinding of some plastic from the disc to remove scratches. I know of no way to repair a disc that the foil peeled off.

I thought about that--except it'd be wrong, also it's been a while (6-month or more) since I bought it, and I've lost the receipt. Also I can't bring myself to do that--seeing how I worked in a Blockbuster for two years. I'd feel sorry for whoever's in my shoes now, in any retail store.

Well...

If you've already written off the disc, then why not experiment on it? All the patch/cover needs to do is reflect right? If that's the case then I'd suggest trying some silver leaf. It's light enough to not throw off the disc's balance and if applied correctly it might work. I'd recommend you learn how to handle silver leaf first though because it's incredibly fragile and a pain to work with at times.

Or you could jus scrap a small strip of the stuff of another useless/damaged CD with a razor blade and afix it somehow...

Actually, it's not just one small piece of the refractive surface--it's more like one giant piece, covering about half of the surface, and within that half-circle, varying degrees of shedding in about two or more spots.

And what's this "Silver leaf" you speak of? Pray tell Will I need a soldering iron? or some sort of adhesive? Just intrigued, not actually thinking about abusing this disc further... yet

the surface that you are talking about holds the information on the disc. the dvd is gone and can not be repaired. but ebay is a good place to shop for dvd's and you can get legit dvd's there.

Silver leaf and a soldering iron... that would be a large waste of some good silver leaf. The heat would melt it instantly.

I assume you've heard of gold leaf... it's incredibly thin sheets of gold, about 1/10 the width of a human hair. Silver leaf is basically the same thing, except it's made of silver. ^^; The only real adhesive needed is the moisture from your breathe.

Oh... then silver leaf definitely wouldn't work.

Thanks for all your help^^ I've ordered FMP! Disc 2 at $18 U.S. and free shipping from an online retailer recommended on the AnimeSuki BT homepage. Hopefully this one will last longer
