  1. I am wondering if anyone has come across a good data recovery program for DVD-RW? (Preferably freeware, or one with a free trial so I can see if it can actually access the files.)

    I had a DVD-RW with about 3GB worth of music vids and accidently quick-erased it before realising what it was. I know the likelyhood is that I may not recover them at all, but since then I have only written about 1GB to the disc at any one time, so I can hopefully retrieve something.

    Any suggestions are greatly welcomed.

  2. I'm not sure data is written to DVD the same way it is to your HDD, since DVDs use a propritary driver for that, but you can give http://www.restorer2000.com/ a try. Sorry, I don't have a DVD burner (it's on its way right now) so I can not verify if it works. I have the Pro version. It's saved my arse a couple of times. Well worth the $50

  3. Thanks stiltman. In fact I had started d/loading that already and cancelled it because I didn't think it would be of any use to me. But I'm trying it anyway.

    The main problem is most of the other programs I have tried are for FAT32, NTFS and CD's (I was amazed at what gets kept on my HDD for a while, I found 20GB worth of DVD Rips).

    But any more suggestions are still appreciated.

  4. @Stiltman. Just tried the program suggested above. It was the same as the other program I tried, it cannot read the disc for the same reason as posted above.

  6. Yep, I tried that first, but as I currently have info on the disc it just reads that info and won't look for anything else.

    I will try erasing it and then try IsoBuster again though.

  7. It didn't work.

    It doesn't matter anyhow. I just thought it would be cool to recover the videos. Half of them were crap anyway. They were from when I just started out doing dvd's (like half a year old) but I did half of them just for the sake of it I guess, so I'm not upset about it.

    Pix,

    Go to www.arrowkey.com. Their CD/DVD diagnostic software has a trial version. Haven't tried it myself though...

    Another is CDCheck at http://elpros.si/CDCheck/
