I stupidly bought a 25-piece cakebox of SKY DVD-R media a few months ago… all burnt fine at the time but 3 months later (in spite of careful storage) all have already gone bad!!!
None of these disks can now be read by the Pioneer DVR-106 which created them… However here is still hope for recovering the data as my old Toshiba SD-M1402 can read and recover files from a few of them… The data on them is important so I’m prepared to buy a new reader if this will help…
Anybody have any ideas which current DVD-Reader is most likely to be able recover the maximum data from these disks?
Choices in my local stores are:
- Toshiba (samsung?) SD-M1912
- Liteon 167T
- NEC 3500 Writer (I was thinking of buying one in the future anyway, I may bring the purchase forward if it is good at reading bad disks)
(I’m in Europe where there is a ‘no opened-box returns unless broken policy’, so I can’t try first!)
