Player for scratched disks

Post Player for scratched disks
I was wondering if anyone has noted makes or models of DVD players that do a better job of playing scratched disks??

I've been getting a few DVD's from the library that have just a few small scratches on them, not bad enough for the library to put in the cleaner, but bad enough to give skips on my player.

I've had that happen before as well, my library won't repair discs that are loaned form other libraries, so I end up having to clean them myself, I use something called the Disc DR. to clean discs. My Samsung DVD-V2000 player has trouble playing some scratched discs, my Zenith 4HD player usually handles them better, i've also found that scratched discs will usually play better on DVD-ROMs.

I used to have a Disc Dr. It worked pretty well on CDs, but I can't recall trying it on DVDs or any other kind of later-generation disc media.

Use toothpaste and water. Just run the disc under cold water and rub out the scratches with some toothpaste using your thumb or a soft rag. Works every time for me.
