I have cleaned hundreds of discs, I've lost count.. I have used the air dry, towel blotch dry, blown air over it, and I have used the Nitty Gritty machines with vacuum lip. By far the best method for cleaning is the Nitty with vacuum lip. I have watched some movies on a repeated basis, and I can say that I have not noticed any degradation of sound or picture after cleaning the disc and then watching the movie on a repeated basis. In fact, I think the picture improves with repeated viewing in a lot of instances. My favorite movie is the Parent Trap on CED. I have not videotaped it. There is no need. Since cleaning, I have probably seen it 8-9 times over the last three years. That movie has the best picture and no skips. Try your own experiments. Once you have used a Nitty, you'll see there is no need for videotape and kiss skipping goodbye. Remember, apply very little pressure on the 78 adaptor, and if you are using the EV-1 from KAB barely hold the hand cleaner in place. You can crush the grooves and damage the disc. Once you go Nitty, you won't go back. Peace. signed James ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Date: Tue, 28 Oct 2003 09:15:02 -0600 From: Dave Potochick <potochdj> Subject: Re: CED Digest Vol. 8 No. 43 To: <email@example.com> >we were then warned against touching the disc itself being our finger >prints could add to the problem and never remove the coating on the >disc! Hmmm... I've washed my CEDs in the sink like I wash vinyl records... Someone at a radio station years ago taught me their secret to cleaning records and I've used it ever since... You wash them in the sink with dish detergent and water using a soft cloth and clean the grooves and then rinse them and towel dry them.... Doing this has worked in correcting skipping for a lot of my CEDs and they play fine afterwards... What does the protective coating actually do?? Is it just for protection of the needle. The Benji disc I spoke about doing this to previously is still playing fine and I cleaned it years ago... It would seem like soap would remove the coating... Sometimes just playing the discs over and over in a spot where it skips corrects the problem.. Dave.
