Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit - Build 7600 SP1

I burned an ISO of the Win7 DVD and it appeared to copy OK. I then made a new DVD just in case one day I have to reinstall. Hopefully that won't be until I build the 64 bit machine that is on my "Bucket List" and install Windows 8. == Thanks for everyone's help.

*reason I don't bother: lazy to put them back so I just stack them on floor
There was a time when I was like that, but have reformed somewhat, because I think that there must have been a change either in the media or the optical drives, because I have had instances when a single scratch that was light did cause problems, and as luck would have it, it would be on an expensive piece of software that I didn't have backed up.

I have tried various ways to attempt to repair such disk, but not with any consistent luck, but have never tried Brasso before, so I will check that out.

Windows 7 Enterprise (x64); Windows Server 2008 R2 (x64)

The library in my area has a special CD/DVD refinishing machine. They use it in their media services department to clean them up after it has been checked out 50 times. Makes the DVD look like new. Go to your local library or media center and see if they have one of those machines and ask them to clean and remove scratches for you. Here they will do one CD/DVD per month for free.

Windows 7 Ultimate x86-64

You may have done this, but image the disc as .iso and then burn it back to DVD - easy.
