There are various accessories available on the market for
protecting the disc surface and improving sound quality.

inside of the centre hole and outside edge of the disc. If you feel
any small bumps or irregularities, this could inhibit proper
loading of the disc. To remove the bumps, rub the inside edge of
the hole and outside edge of the disc with a ballpoint pen or other
such instrument, then insert the disc again.
