:o :o :o :o cleaning the lens every 10 hours  :o :o :o :o :o :o is that missing a zero or two?

Maybe if you don't clean it that often the later might miss a zero or two! :D

I tried this one... Allsop 23321 Carbon-Edge DVD and CD-Drive Cleaner

and this one (which I found to be better)... Maxell CD-340 CD Lens Cleaner

I think, for CD/DVD/BRay, is using anti-static cleaning cloths with each play and at the end of each play.     At the end of each play, the disc has heated up and is even easy to clean  :)

Well, I have experimented and I think the best approach is to always keep you CD's clean, so that nothing is transferred to the lens while the disc is playing :)

I have found that cleaning the CD with a soft tissue and metho is sufficient, then discard the tissue after cleaning the disc, along with the occasional use of the Lens cleaning disc... perhaps once every 1 or 2 months :) 

I have tried VuPlex and I really do not like it unless it is used for repairing a scratched disc that you are trying to copy :)

I think VuPlex is best applied using a soft tissue and buffing the disc is best done using a soft tissue, also :)   

If the disc happens to be a little to scratched for playback then VuPlex may help it to be sufficiently readable for burning to another disc.    I think that this is the way that I would use VuPlex and I have begun using it for copying damaged DVDs :)
