A CD resurfacer should work on DVDs as well. The only thing you need to watch out for is in some cases they can screw up a disc and cause more damage than what the disc originally began with. If it's only minor surface scratches you should rip the DVD and make a backup copy before attempting to resurface it, if it isn't copy-protected (unlikely) you can use your CD/DVD burning software to create an ISO and have an exact duplicate copy.




For cleaning the discs CD, DVD you don't really need any expensive gadget to do it. Go to an eyeglasses store and get some lens cleaner that's designed for polycarbonate lenses ("plastic eyeglasses"), make damn sure the cleaner doesn't say anti-fog on it that will create a nasty haze on the discs, also get an eyeglasses cleaning cloth. Spray the cleaner onto the cloth (not directly onto the disc) and wipe from the center opening towards the outside in straight lines - do not wipe the disc in a circle as you can easily introduce more scratches or worse scratch the groove where the data resides.
