      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.
