    Toothpaste would have done it too. However it looks more like grease pencil marks so some kid with a crayon messed it up. It should be cleanable. If not, then you know Brasso is overboard on a plastic disc. Toothpaste and your fingertip and water and rub it off. It either works right away or it don't.

    That disc is totally ruined: the scratches are far too deep and some have penetrated the reflective silver layer which contains the disc data.

    A specialist data recovery company would be able to recover some, maybe even most, data from that disc but they will charge an absolute fortune to do so. But the disc itself would remain permanently unfixable.
