Did you know the SD State Library offers a disc repair service?

Libraries can send up to 50 damaged DVDs/CDs at a time to the State Library for repair. The library must be able to pick-up the items at the State Library or arrange for delivery through the courier or some other means. The library sending the material to the State Library is responsible for all delivery costs.

Types of media that can be repaired include:

  • CDs - Music, Data, RW, R formats
  • DVDs - Blu Ray, HD DVD, Single and Double Sided
  • Video Game Discs: (Not all game discs can be repaired. Contact the State Library before sending game discs.)

Damages that cannot be repaired include:

  • Cracks
  • Warping
  • Dents

A form (found at library.sd.gov) must be sent along with any discs to be repaired.
