Used Nero the same way I have for a lot of years to burn discs - I always set it up to verify after writing, and very infrequently need to re-burn after an error. But with some discs I’ve used recently (within the last two weeks), I’ve discovered that isn’t a complete solution…I had a run of discs where out of the 50-lot six I’ve found so far which verified properly in Nero can not be read by any of the computers here…indeed, one of the XP boxes literally hangs requring a reset on insertion - the others simply lag with constant accesses until I tire of the game and eject the disc.
I’m assuming Nero is not at fault, and it’s the discs that are to blame. Some of the discs I can recreate, but some I can’t, so I need from the assemblage here some recommendations on DVD recovery applications. I’m happy to purchase reasonably-priced software if it’ll recover most of the data on these discs, but it would be nice if there was a demo or trial that would allow me to evaluate the software on these specific discs.
(I’d love to know what can cause a disc to verify in Nero and then almost immediately be unreadable, but I think I’ll leave that to after some of this data is recovered safely…)
Any suggestions, particularly from those who have experience with the apps, would be greatly appreciated.
