A brand new drive. It's a big part in the recovery process since I find even an one year drive to not read as well as my new drive.
Also, FIRMWARE can sometimes help.
Hi everyone. I have about 60 DVD's, each with 5 or 6 divx movies on them. In order to store everything more efficiently, I bought one of those cases that holds 100 dvds and lets you select the disc with a little lever.
Well, its two years later now, and almost every disc is damaged where the case holds on to the DVD. If you look at the disc, it only cuts into the label in an area of about .25 inches towards the center, and about the same lengthwise.
So, what this means to me is that the majority of the data should be easily readable. But, Windows won't let me even try, since I have a feeling the table of contents is destroyed.
If I can recover 5 out of 6 movies on each disc, I will be much happier than losing everything. I figure only the movie contained furthest from the center of the disc will be lost.
Anybody know of a freeware program to get some of my movies? I'm on Windows XP SP2.
