CDRestore recovers media
SubRosaSoft.com today began shipping , a new Mac OS X utility that creates image files from scratched or surface damaged CDs and DVDs and allows replicas to be produced using CD/DVD burning utilities: "Once in a while, we have important data files on scratched CDs that cannot be recovered by simply dragging-and-dropping to a hard drive. With CDRestore, recovering the information is made possible. CDRestore will attempt to create an image file from the scratched CD, with which you can then burn a fresh copy." The $20 utility runs on Mac OS X 10.2 or later.
