Repairing CDR's

Is there any software that can repair or make a bad CD work?
I know there is software that will let you read a bad cd. :smiley:

Repair ? Naah… not physically repair at least…

Things like Windows Commander and Exact Audio Copy are very good at reading malfunctioning discs.

What also might help is to polish the cd with a very very little amount of toothpaste and then retry (polish much , use little toothpaste ; It’s crystals will fill in the scratches)

Some good info!!:wink:
I was looking at some of that software.
Thanks

For mechanical damage I use the Skip Doctor, it’s a polishing wheel. But only use it if your disk is really danagedd, as the process introduces some fine radial polishing marks on the disk. Good for otherwise unreadable disks. That’s how I recently recuperated my daughter’s badly scratched Shakira CD. Promptly made a backup of course :bigsmile:
