After you’re done sanding, you might dampen the wood to raise the grain and then try a bleaching solution with a qtip in the deepest scratch marks. Leave it alone overnight. That should give you an indication if you can successfully remove the oxidation/darkness from the scratch marks. Imho, floors are difficult because of all the dirt, grease … that gets into the pores. To my eye, the first sanding you did was just about right.
