I just got back from a trip to Europe, was using my digital camera and downloading to a CD-RW at Internet cafes when the card got full. I did it three times, the first two worked ok. The last one appeared to work ok (I was able to read the JPEGs off the CD after burning at the Internet cafe), but after bringing the disc home, I cannot read that last directory. I am not sure if the data is corrupt or the disc was somehow damaged. If the disc was damaged, I find it strange that only that directory is affected and the other 2 are perfectly ok. I tried to repair the disc with a kit I bought. It seemed to remove the scratches but the disc does not read any better. Some programs try to read each JPEG and just fail. Other programs, keep trying to read the JPEG, and sometimes get half of it, sometimes all of it, sometimes none. In this case, it takes a very long time to read each file (a few min). It almost seems like the program is repeteadly trying to the same sector when it fails to read it correctly the first time.
Is there a software that would help me recover images from the CD?
