Never hurts to try it, at least to get a rip.  Sounds like your disk is
basically a write-off anyway.

However, I'm doubtful this would work.  The crack has most likely ripped
the aluminum foil data layer.  Also, even if you can super-glue it, even
if you buff the bottom, you'll still see the crack (and so will the
laser).  So it may sort of work, but you'll get lots of errors and

I say you should try it though.
