Kafoopsy - I’m no expert on the subject but from past experience some CD/RW’s will read a bad disk when others won’t. E.G. I have an old phillips cdd3610 2 speed writer that will read just about anything you put in it. I keep it on the shelf for those cd’s that will not otherwise read and it has in fact saved my data twice that I remember.
