Once a CD is cracked, it is damaged beyond repair.Do not attempt to use a CD that is broken or cracked.
Placing a CD that has suffered extreme damage into a CD player can cause damage to the device itself. Once the disk becomes cracked or deeply scratched, it is virtually useless. If users have an important disc, or one that they wish to preserve, copies should be made before damage occurs. This ensures the info is backed up. Discs should also be stored in a dry, dark place and stored in the jewel case to prevent damage.
