Recovering Photos From A Bad DVD+R
 
Hello,

I have some important photos on a DVD+R that is not reading in my computer. When I try to rip, copy, open...ect the disc just freezes up. Any software suggestions? Thank You much!

Ask Mr. Weiner I heard he was trying to recover some photos, maybe he can help.

Is it the same drive you burned the disc on? Try another pc. If that doesn't work, funny as it sounds, I've seen the local CVS' photo shop pull photos from some pretty old media before.

was it burn on lite-on? some older lite-on burners didn't close out sessions correctly which prevented some other drivers to read them correctly.

tool like ISO buster often can read disc that drive can detect but can't read.

if the disc is warped, slight crack towards the center ring or discoloration on the burn surface (rot) then you might not be able to recover it.

good luck

I keep all my pictures on 4 different HDDs in 4 different locations. my pictures are probably the most important data, so i try to keep them safe.

Yea this is not good! The PC at work will not read them either.

nekrosoft13, I think it may have been a Lite-on, not 100% sure. I will try ISO Buster, thank you much!

No luck with ISO Buster. It's my own fault for relying on optical discs only, live and learn.

online backup.
The one solution I would recommend.

Here are a few to get you started:
Mozy, carbonite, backblaze...

200gb of picture files ;), JPG and RAW files take a lot of space.

plus I would never trust a cloud like service to keep my files secure, you never know in what hands it might end up.

Like i said I have my pictures in four places, on 4 seperate hdds, its unlikelly for all 4 hdds to die at the same time.

sometimes you can rely on optical media, but don't use it as your only backup.

Lite-ons are some of the least reliable drives, also Matsu****a (Panasonic) drives that come in OEM systems are crappy as well.
