I have a CDRW disc and its got a lot of scratches on it. Is there a way i can Erase the disc and mark the bad sectors so it will work?
Theoretically, it could be possible… but I am pretty sure (99,9999%) that nobody ever did implement such a thing. Kinda hard I guess since a CDRW writes consecutive. Imagine the proces
- read some kind of error table from the disc
- start writing
- if the next position of the laser is a marked one, skip that one to the next good position
- continu writing
- writing finished
- put info in the table of the disc that serveral files are spread over the disc
conclusion: this could work, but the disc would not be cdrom compliant, and not readable…
Hey i found InCD that comes with nero can do it. It marks the bad sectors an stuff.
