Is the CD still working? Can you read from it?
I would suggest that you copy the CD before trying anything on it, especially chemical products.

Naw naw, My CD drive is clean I didnt know that Drive Speed could do that, I just thought it was for if you were having problems at high speeds. The Thing is that in some CD drives I get errors and in some it works then in some DVD Drives it doesnt even get detected and in some it works it is weird. I have a trillion little borthers and they mess up all my CD's it sucks

That is actually simmular to the Memorex CD scrach kit I used, I loved that thing it really worked (But it didnt have sand pads.)
