All optical discs including CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray discs, and games can get scratched up over time. When these scratches start affecting playback, they can usually be repaired using an optical disc resurfacer. In this video, I demonstrate what type of damage can be repaired, and give a step-by-step tutorial on how to use the JFJ Easy Pro.

Do you have old music CDs that aren't on your playlist sitting in your CD collection? Trade them for Compact Discs that you want! In this video I explore options for swapping compact discs and explore the history of online CD trading, with details on both active and defunct websites offering this service.

Websites that are currently active that offer CD trades are:

Defunct website that formerly offered CD trading include:

Swaprat/SwitchHouse
Article:

Archives:
https://web.archive.org/web/*/switchhouse.com
Note: There is very little information about SwapRat out there. I could not even find the original graphic used on their website. Considering the groundbreaking nature of this website, I think it warrants a Wikipedia Article, or at least a Stub.

Swaptree
Wikipedia:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swap.com
Note: A Wikipedia search of Swaptree redirects to the current article about Swap.com, with NO historical information about the company before the the acquisition from Netcycler. Swaptree was an active website with a unique algorithm that deserves it's own Wikipedia entry.

In this video, I discuss things to look for in the bins that are in demand among CD collectors including audiophile discs, vintage discs including Target CDs, Specialty Labels, Imports, CD singles, and Minor Label releases. I also discuss what to avoid in the bins, including dime-a-dozen titles, art-impaired discs, scratched discs, and CD-R releases.
