Can't view photos on CD

I have some photos on a HP CD-R.
Only 3 photos can be viewed properly.
All others aren't readable
Executables and zip files on the cd work properly

How can I recover my photos?

Thx in advance

Re: Can't view photos on CD

If isobuster extracted all files correctly but the files are still unreadable, then probably files was corrupt also on the original disc.

Do isobuster give you some error message?

No error message

If the files are corrupt on original cd, is there a way to recover them?

Re: Can't view photos on CD

no. a corrupt file remain corrupt on a CD

Tools like isobuster allow to recover files from damaged discs, but if original file is damaged, then I think that is not possible to recover. Sorry

Try opening the photo files with other viewers, or better still, with a photo-editor.

Probably files were corrupt also on the original disc. Or they are in a so unused format that need a very specific viewer.

Re: Can't view photos on CD

acdsee is able to read many, but not all file formats. Anyway It seems to me that files were corrupted on the original disc.

Re: Can't view photos on CD

well, rewritable discs are know to be a little unreliable.

The only way I know to recover files is with isobuster.

If isobuster recover correctly all files, and these files are unreadable, then the problem is that with time the disc become corrupted, and now the files are unreadable.

Sorry, but in my opinion you've lost these files.

Put Spinrite from www.grc.com to recover data from the cd, your last chance.

I agree about rewiitables unreliability. I have lost data from them (complete disks) in the past.
BadCopy is another program that will recover your files for you to extract, from floppies, CDs, DVDs, however, if the files are corrupt nothing will make them readable.
