    Try this program.

    http://www.recuva.com/

    I used it when my flash drive started randomly deleting files and it even recovered teh ones that were unrecoverable 100%.

    If you want, you could buy spinrite, I think it has a data recovery option, on any x86 windows OS I know IOLO system mechanic has a recovery option, those are the only 2 I can think of, best of luck buddy.

    GetDataBack works great. Or you could use the Solaris utility DVD.

    Hate to say it... but guess what... you shouldnt be trying to recover CDs that you dont own anymore. I know your intensions are honorable, but this is actually a help me pirate/hack thread.

    I've had great results with all of the following (for recovering lost data, not CDs ;)):
    • recuva
    • getdataback
    • r-studio (recovery studio)
    • EASEUS Data Recovery

    you might try *removed* it has quite a few recovery utilities.
    i use it quite often as a rescue disk .
    grab the updated ISO mount and burn

    Edit:
    Unless all the programs on that disk are trials that disk seems to be a collection of warez.

    How do you know that the CD's on his hard drive are not copies of his lifelong collection of purchased discs placed into one collection? ;)

    PLEASE read the OP before posting nonsense like that!

    If you dont have them, you dont own them. Copyright rules are very straightforward. If you gifted them, or sold them, you dont own them anymore. No copies I'm afraid. TBH, I dont give a flying fook. But TPU guidelines are pretty straightforward. No discussions relating to how to infringe copyright.

    "I still own them but I gave them to my gran". BULLSHARKS.

    I use a program called Stellar Phoenix. It's a pay for program, but it's really really good.

    You do need a second HDD though, but you let it run, it deep scans the HDDs, and then you can copy off all your stuff onto a second HDD (I always keep a spare for cases like this).

    WTF Solaris! That's no way to talk to other TPU members. Please see my post#11. I very politely pointed out your OP was in breach of TPU guidelines. That's all.
