Unfortunately, there is no way to permanently repair a CD. Once it’s broken, the CD cannot be restored to its original condition and the CD will be at risk of fracturing completely due to the high speed at which the CD spins in the CD player. This can permanently damage the CD player as well.

How do you fix a broken CD with tape?
Apply a piece of clear packing tape over the crack on the disc’s non-recordable side. Run a single strip of tape straight across the entire CD, covering not only the crack but also the opposite portion of the disc as well.
Can a broken DVD be repaired?
You can use wax and polish and sometimes glue and tape to repair a scratched or broken DVD. Deep scratches may not be repairable, and may require professional help. Discs broken into two or more pieces are generally not repairable.
Does Best Buy do disk repair?

Does GameStop do disc repairs?
Does GameStop clean discs? GameStop doesn’t resurface discs in the store or do any type of repairs in store. If you have a broken disc or console, we send it to our warehouse in Texas and refurbish it. There is usually a $5 fee when trading in a scratched game to cover the resurfacing cost.
How do you fix a cracked CD with toothpaste?
Apply a bit of toothpaste to a cotton swab. Gently rub the toothpaste on the crack in circular motions. You are essentially buffing out the crack with the toothpaste. You might see little scratches forming, but if the deeper crack is becoming less prominent, then you are doing it correctly.
Can a CD player be repaired?
If your CD player that plays burned CDs or regular commercial discs is not reading, is skipping or is experiencing tray issues, you may be able to solve the issue with basic CD player repair. If the problem persists with the new disc, remove all discs and run a power cycle to reset the player.
Is it possible to fix a CD broken in half?
Broken CD or DVD is Not Repairable If the CD, DVD, or Blu-ray disc has broken into two pieces, the disc is not repairable, cannot be fixed, and is a lost disc. You cannot glue the disc back together and expect it to be playable.
How much does it cost to get a disc resurfaced?
In my area different stores would charge between 3 and 5 dollars per disk. Local game store charges $2 per disc, however they can only do so much to save them. I’ve been a customer for a long time so I still get it for $1 like they used to charge. You can buy a resurfacer for about $40.
