So fun story:
I got there and showed him my stack of about 19 CD's. Of them, 10 would repair according to him. He managed to clean up 5 to his satisfaction, so didn't charge me for the other 5 that he wasn't comfortable with. Afterwards, one of the CD's he said was foobared he sold me for 5.99 (Depeche Mode's Violator), and one of the Cd's I had bought prior he accepted back (4 tracks on it wouldn't rip of 7, being Led Zeppelin's In Through The Out Door). I got in return Led Zeppelin's "Led Zeppelin" which he suggested was a better album. Not being particularly wow'd by In Through The Outdoor I accepted the trade. Also got Depche Mode's "Ultra" while I was there, and a membership to the benefits program at the store. He said he'd clean the CD's he could in exchange for buying a 5$ membership, which I believe is lifetime.
I spent 21$, replaced one of my goner's, traded in another (which I had bought from them and had troubles), and got another new CD, as well as a membership to the store. Verdict is still out how well those CD's will rip but we'll see.
I have a stack of discs that he was pretty sure just ain't gonna work ever so I accepted my fate. :\
