Hi, the CD that came with my Office XP seems to be worn and damaged and neither of my PCs will read the CD.

How can i best repair the cd?

Cheers

I would think that you may use a cloth to remove gunk off the CD. Just ensure the CD disk is clean. This means clear of fingerprints.

You can also ask Microsoft for a new Office CD.
Send them the Office CD to Auckland and ask for a replacement,

Or you could take the disc to your local video store and get them to run it through their polishing machine, may cost you $5.
