Recovering Your Data From Damaged DVDs

Aug 17, 2007
There are many computer applications out there that will perform DVD data recovery for you. Often times your data can become lost or damaged on your DVD and it is vital to you that this data be recovered. When data recovery is necessary, a good recovery program will perform this task for you. There are some important factors to look for when selecting which software you will use in this frustrating time.

So what should I be looking for?

You must use a recovery program that can, when necessary, retrieve your data from disks that you made with "drag and drop" DVD authoring software. When comparing the features of different recovery programs, you will want to choose the one that records directly onto disks. These disks should include disks for your digital camera, DVD video cameras, or your personal DVD recorders/players.

You will probably need a recovery application that can unzip the files that were previously compressed. The program should also be able to obtain the back up data from the discs that were written in several stages. The DVD data recovery program will most likely benefit from an internal UDF reader. Even if you have erased your files from your DVD you should be able perform some kind of data recovery. Improperly closed disks can also be recovered by the software. The software will likely be able to identify missing or corrupt data on the ISO/Joliet discs even if they have a damaged file system.

Can I expect anything more from this software?

A good recovery application will likely be able to recover the files that are found on your defective, scratched, or damaged discs. In addition to all of that, it will probably give you direct access to the drive, while bypassing the Windows File System. It should scan for the lost sessions each time you put a new disc into the drive.

The DVD data recovery application will digitally save audio tracks from a vast range of wave types. It will also examine the usability of the DVD as well. When this is performed by the software you should have an extracted ISO Image file. The program should organize all of your files and folders into a DVD library. A good program will most importantly be one that is very easy for the end user to use.
