CD-R/CD-RW Question

By galahad04 ·
Hi, I have a couple of CD-RW discs that became unwritable because I had been burning files too fast on my CD burner. Lowering the write speed has helped my other discs from suffering the same fate, but now I apparently cannot burn any more files to the damaged discs.

However, a friend of mine who is knowledgeable regarding CD burning software mentioned that there are software tools available that can recover and repair damaged writable CD media. (He said I may not be able to get all 700 MB back, but that I might get back something like 400 MB.) Therefore, could please let me know what kinds/brands of CD-R/CD-RW repair programs are out there?

Also -- does Windows XP's built-in CD burning program have any damaged CD recovery capabilities?

Are you sure that the disc are clean and have no marks on them. If it's clean. It could be the CD-Rom. If you are using the CD-RW drive to read it, it might be the case. Some of them have hard time reading data, but they can burn cd every good, because it's made for making cd. Trying using a different CD-Rom drive to read the disc. If it still doesn't work it's the disc alright. I'm sorry i dont know any programs that does that, because if it can do that how come you can't get all the data back. That's stupid if you only get 2/3 of it back. Good Luck.
