IsoPuzzle provides data recovery from damaged CD and DVD data disks. It isn’t very often that I have a CD or DVD that goes bad, but when it happens, I like to have a way to recover data. IsoPuzzle provides one method for recovering data from CD or DVD media, reading the contents from remaining good sectors and writing the data out to an ISO which may be mounted and read from ISO disk mounting tools like Dameom Tools. Currently the application only supports data disks with 2048 byte sector sizes, so you can’t recover things like music CDs or SVCD movie disks, but any recovery option is better than none at all. You also need Nero’s WNASPI32.DLL to mount the CD drive in the IsoPuzzle application (linked from the IsoPuzzle Website). While this application has plenty of room to grow with additional features, if you’re in a pinch it may just be the thing that recovers an important file from a damaged disk. [Windows 2k/XP $0.00]
