The purpose of this program is to recover as much data of damaged, bad burned or scratched CDs or DVDs
All readable data is stored in an "ISO" image file which can be read by various software such as "Daemon Tools", "WinRar" (needs iso-plugin) and most burner software like "Nero" etc.

Every succsessfully read sector is stored in the image file (*.ISO) and will be marked "good" in the corresponding "flag" file (*.FLG). If a read error is encountered a dummy sector will be written which will remain marked "bad".

In this case a random number of sectors are skipped for faster progress. Reaching the end of the disk a retry loop will be entered until all sectors have been read or a selectable "Give Up Time" has been reached.

You can download this wonderful tool here.
