How To Recover Data From Scratched Or Damaged Cds/Dvds


Hi Friends, Hope you are doing well,
One of my  Friend gave me his wedding video DVD, I want to watch his life changing video but it is stuck between 2nd part. He is upset because he was not having copies of that DVD. When I checked that DVD some scratches were there. I have cleaned that DVD using cleaner but the same problem occurred & tried copying but getting error it saying the file is corrupted or damaged But I found some really handy programs that can solve such problems, which I thought I’d share with you all today.

Method 1: CD Recovery Toolbox
CD Recovery Toolbox Free was developed for recovering damaged files CD, DVD, HD DVD, Blu-Ray etc. You can use it to restore information lost as a result of some mechanical damage of the disk (scratches, chips, different spots on the surface) or as a result of incorrect recording. This program can recover datathat was considered lost.



To recover your data, insert you DVD or CD onto your drive and the CD recovery toolbox will search for the files already present on the disc, select the files you want to recover and press next.


Method 2: Roadkil’s Unstoppable Copier
Roadkil’s Unstoppable Cleaner recovers files from any kind of damaged disk. It allows you to copy files from disks that give ‘corruption‘ errors, and those that are scratched. The program attempts to recover all the parts of the file that are still readable, and ignore the damaged parts. The program is tiny, and it needs no installation, so you can just jump straight in.


Method 3: ISO Puzzle
The goal of ISO Puzzle is to recover as much as possible data of damaged, bad burned or scratched CDs or DVDs. This version supports only data CDs and DVDs with sector size of 2048 byte – Audio CD, VCD and SVCD are not supported. Before you can start using IsoPuzzle, you’ll need to download WNASPI32.DLL from Nero and place it in the IsoPuzzle’s directory.


Just remember that you’ll have a part of  the file that is recoverable, the part that was originally damaged, will be skipped, as these programs don’t repair the disk, but instead recover all other parts of the file. So, for example, if you’re watching a film, 2 minutes of the film might be skipped, due to the fact that the part skipped was damaged.

If you found its really helpful to you, Please share it on Facebook,Twitter & with your friends.
Thanks.
