wink TIPS: Recover Scratched CDs - 10-08-2006, 11:32 PM

Don't you feel like crying every time you add another disc to
your pile of scratched discs. Trashing that disc which contained
your favorite songs, pics, files, games or videos is not easy.
Read-on, if you find yourself wishing for a miracle every time
your fav CD is scratched:


Home Remedy :
Here's an easy home remedy, which might give you
the desired results. Rub a small amount of toothpaste on the scratch
and polish the CD with a soft cloth and any petroleum-based
polishing solution (like clear shoe polish). Squirt a drop of
Brasso and wipe it with a clean cloth.
Technology to the rescue:
There are many softwares available on the
net, which enable the recovery of the CD data. BadCopy Pro is one
such software, which can be used to recover destroyed data and
files from a range of media.

Just a few clicks is all it requires to recover the disc from almost all
kind of damage situation; be it corrupted, lost data, unreadable
or defective.

DiskDoctors is another popular company, which offers both software
and solutions to recover data from a scratched CDs and DVDs





General Tips:
* Always wipe the CD from the center outward with straight spoke-like
strokes. Wiping CDs in circles will create more scratches.
* Do not scratch the graphics layer as you cannot repair the disc.
HINT: Hold the disc up to a light with the graphics layer facing
the light source. If you can see light thru the scratches at any
point then the disc may be irreparable and or exhibit loading
or playing errors.
* Clean your Disc players lens regularly with a suitable product to
ensure optimal viewing pleasure.
* Make sure to use a soft, lint-free cloth to clean both sides of the
disc. Wipe in a straight line from the centre of the disc to the
outer edge.
* If wiping with a cloth does not remove a fingerprint or smudge,
use a specialized DVD disc polishing spray to clean the disc.
* Only handle the disc by its outer edge and the empty hole in the
middle. This will help prevent fingerprints, smudges or scratches.


Statistics:
*Finger marks/ prints cause 43% of disc problems.
* General wear & tear causes 25% of disc problems.
* Player-related issues cause 15% of disc problems.
* User-related issues cause 12% of disc problems.
* PlayStation 2 machine scratches cause 3% of disc problems.
* Laser rot (a manufacturer error) causes 2% of disc problems.

Preventive measures are always better. I don't give my DVDs (as I gave up CDs about two years ago) to friends, and keep them safe. Whenever someoen asks me for a DVD, i tell them that i would burn them a DVD, but not give them mine.

UltraISO's iso extraction is very powerful too. It will retry a lot of times before giving up, when most other file recovery software gave up on me. ISO extraction would be very important when you need all the files to be extracted, such as a game CD where a single corrupted file would stop one from installing the game.
