01 – IsoPuzzle

IsoPuzzle is by far the best software to recover data from damaged DVD, I tried the software on my old scratched CD and it worked. According to sources, it does not guarantee 100% recovery success rate, no harm trying.

02 – CD Recovery Toolbox

CD Recovery Toolbox was developed for recovering damaged files from different disk types: CD, DVD, HD DVD, Blu-Ray, etc. Use it to restore and recover information lost as a consequence of some mechanical damage of the disk such as surface scratches, chips, different spots on the surface or as a result of incorrect recording on the boot sector. Thus, the program can recover data from CD and DVD that was considered lost or unreadable by the DVD drive. This is another good damaged DVD data recovery tool. Depending on the level of damage, the recovery progression may consume a slightly long time, on certain cases; the files might not be recoverable.

03 – CD Check

Yet another DVD data recovery, CDCheck is a utility for the prevention, detection and recovery of damaged files on CD-ROMs with an emphasis on error detection. With CDCheck you can check your CDs and discover which files are corrupted that might affect the readability of the disk. Prevention is better than cure.

    Tips For Data Recovery

    Anytime your hard drive crashes or you lose your data, you’ll need to turn to data recovery to properly restore your information. Data recovery is something most computer users are familiar with, as a majority of us have had to turn to data recovery at some point in time. If you create backups of your information, you’ll be well prepared in the event of a disaster. If you didn’t make back ups, you’ll find the situation very traumatic when you discover that your data cannot be recovered.

    Most hard drives will last for years before they start to encounter any type of malfunction or hardware problems. You can help prevent data loss by turning off your computer when it isn’t in use, or shutting it down when you hear the hard drive making an odd noise. If the hard drive starts to malfunction, letting it continue to run will only do more damage. With natural disasters, hackers, viruses, or other problems, you won’t have the time to react. Before you know it, your hard drive will be damaged and your data will be gone. Although this can be very frustrating, data recovery can normally bring your information back. All you need to do is take the hard drive to a local specialist, then let them work their magic and show you the power of data recovery.

    There are software programs out there that claim to recover lost data, although you should avoid them at all costs. Most of time, these software programs will do your hard drive more bad than good. Even though software may cost a lot less than professional data recovery services, the professional services will guarantee their work. Anytime your hard drive fails and you seem to have lost your data, you should turn to professional data recovery services immediately. When it comes to your data, you really don’t want to take any chances – especially if you had important documents and files stored on your hard drive.

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    I backed up my documents including pictures files on a DVD and reformatted my laptop. There after, I tried to copy back the files on to the laptop but the DVD refuses to open the documents. I tried it on many systems but the story is same.
    The DVD, if slotted into the system, shows that there is content in it but it can’t open.
    Please kindly send me software that can help recover my lost data.
    Thank you.

    If the scratch is not so serious, you can buy those “cheap” Scratch Repair Cleaner fluid kit like one common brand Ette from bookshop or DVD store

    And another most effective backup is that most DVD recorder had an hard-disk (HDD) mounted inside which allow you to store your video or music in it. Depend on which brand your used like LG or Samsung and whether there is an original DVD copyright encrypted on it etc, for most DVD-Recorder with HDD, there is usually an function that after you record your show on your DVD, before you press the “finalised” setting to view on PC or storing permanent in an DVD, try to dub (copy) the video file into the HDD for permanent storing and you can always dub (copy) the video show from HDD back to DVD if the original disc are damaged.Better than wasting $$$ on software or DVD recovery which is might be costly

    I used “cd recovery toolbox” on a dvd in a samsung dvd recorder. Although the recovery appears to work, the program slows down on the trouble spots it purports to fix—pn fact so slow that it has recovered only 300mb from the 4.5 gb disk in twelve hours— and still going ! . The programs design management is not excellent— I guess you get what you pay! It works only from bottom to top and gives the user no prescan directory. Therefore, when it gets stuck, it gives the user no way to “move on” and capture what is left up on the hill. Lest go back to video casettes– a safe way to keep your movies
