[QUOTE=Focal;2628426]Thanks. I got the h2cdimage working but no go and same with IsoPuzzle. Both applications can’t even detect that there’s disc inside my drive. I just hear the drive looping every 1 sec. and nothing happening on the screen.
If I get the chance I will try go get them polished but I’m not sure where I can go do that. I’m currently living in Norway.
I’m not surprised this is some kind of liquid damage.
She got an earful from me about this and how disappointing it is to get the collection back like that and specially when I haven’t even got the chance to watch it.
But thank you all for your suggestions, it was worth the try but I think it will have to go out and spend some money.[/QUOTE]
Yeah it looks like liquid damage in the photo which means that whatever it is has penetrated the surface of the disc.
I don’t think it’s water as absorbed water will in most instances eventually dry out under normal room conditions.
The National Standards Institute has carried out tests in the past where discs were left entirely submerged in water until they were completely unreadable.
The discs dried out after only 24 hours under normal room conditions to the point where they were all readable.
So as I say I think it’s something more severe than water.
Sounds to me like your sister now owes you some new discs.
