RW CD has self destructed - HELP

Yo - I store loads of info on a RW CD. The info comes from outlook files and documents and I use the formatted cd as a backup drive. The damned thing has just today starting playing up. It hangs the PC if you try to access one particular folder on it. The problem is, thats the folder where most of my important stuff is in!!! The other folders can be opened but the disk is running slow. Is there anything I can do to rescue the info in the corrupt folder? Is there any software tool i can try? Please, please help if you can.
