- developer: CD-ROM Productions
CD-R Diagnostic is specifically designed for:
People with a CD recorder that occasionally have problems with recorded CD's.
People involved in the production of CD-ROMs.
People that have had problems with CD-R or CD-RW discs and have discs with inaccessible files
People that are curious about the construction of CD's in general
This program doesn't repair "coasters" or exploit features of specific CD recorders for recovering CD-R's which have been incorrectly written. It doesn't even require a CD recorder to operate - it should function very well with all CD-ROM drives which have been manufactured in the last few years. An exception to this is packet-written CD-R and CD-RW discs which have not been finalized yet. These discs are only readable in a CD recorder and sometimes only the recorder which wrote them.
This program will recover data from many otherwise inaccessible packet-written CD-R and CD-RW discs. It is not guaranteed to recover everything. However, you will find a significant number of files which are inaccessible previously can be displayed and copied off the disc using this program.
