CD-ROM recovery software?

It's funny you mentioned Turtle Wax. For the few times I have taken my
son's game disks in to have them resurfaced, that paste they put on the
disc looks strangely like Turtle Wax. I have some McGuires. I am going
to test that  too.

I'm guessing this is a burned CD. I wonder if good old Turtle Wax would
work? I used it once on some audio CDs that I bought from the library,
and it worked amazingly well.
