data recovery firm

by Dr Dij In reply to Broken CD

I know of some in US.
don't know of any in India.
They could probably get most of your data off, if cleanly broken, not heavily scratched or a huge# of pieces.

You could probably mail it.

Did you try to recover it with linux?

by losadaz In reply to Broken CD

Linux is very powerfull, you can extract
the Cd-rom ignoring read i/o errors; with
this command (execute as root):

dd conv=noerror if=/dev/cdrom

an iso of the readable data will be
created, then you can pass file recovery
tools over this iso.
You can skip the first blocks of data, as
in your case (and accelerate reading); like

dd conv=noerror if=/dev/cdrom
of=/cdrom_image.iso ibs=2048 skip=100

With the previous command you will skip the
first 100 blocks of 2048 bytes. If you know
the amount of data damaged this is
To recover data from a cd is relatively
easy, as the files are contiguous and not
spreaded all over the disk (like in a HD),
so you don't need the fat to recover data.

With the iso you can extract files with
professional tools or examine data by hand
if you know what type of data is.

Don't do it yourself.

by 1bn0 In reply to Broken CD

You will likely damage the disk, the drive and injure yourself in the process. Send it to one of the data recovery services. They have equipment to read the disk without spinning it at lethal velocities that will tear it appart.
