View Full Version : Bad burn? (Is data salvagable?)

2006-05-28, 01:06 PM
I've got a DVD that was sent to me in trade awhile back that I'm just getting around to archiving and seems to be corrupt. Unfortunately, the person who sent it to me is no longer responding to emails.

I can see the disc phyiscally has data written on it, yet neither my standalone or PC can read it and the the disc cannot be viewed via Windows Explorer.

Any ideas? Is this just a coaster or is there something I can do to view the data on the DVD?

I've never been successful with such procedures, but there are programs out there: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=dvd+recovery&btnG=Google+Search
