Re: Recovering Photos From A Bad DVD+R
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.
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.
