Anyone know of a good software to retrieve data from a roughed up DVD? I went to install my cod4 today, but the disc had been neglected and is scuffed up pretty bad. The install is crapping out because of copy errors. [banghead]

Thanks!

$5 - $9 on Ebay, key might be used / banned but you're after the disc.

Probably cheaper than buying data recovery software.

Wish we could redeem out CoD keys on Steam. =0/ I'd be playing CoD / UO right now if we could.

I have had some great success with IsoBuster, its a freeware (although you can buy a full version too), get it HERE

Also you should be able to get a replacement disc from ATVI, i suggest contacting @ATVI_Amber on Twitter!

Lastly, you could grab an ISO im sure from a torrent site - providing you have the original CD-KEY that is [casanova]

Let me first point out that i in know way support piracy but i have been in the same situation with a damaged disk. What i done was download a torrent .iso of the game and install that but use my own cdkey from the case i had.

I cannot see an issue with this because you have brought the software, you also have your unique key

Thanks for the replies. I've tried a couple of programs, one of them isobuster.

isobuster would copy the data, but the corrupt data would be copied as all zeros or random data, which kind of doesn't help.

Another one I tried was CD Recovery Toolbox Free. It took hours to get through the read errors on multiple files, but the files were still corrupt after copying them to my hard drive. I imagine that the data was filled with zeros or random data, like isobuster.

I'm reluctant to download a pirated copy and use my cd key. I didn't even know that that was possible. I thought the keys were unique to each cd or dvd.

Yes you can download any of the software you have a key for.. Most software these days you buy the licence key for not the actual disk. That applies to games and software such as antivirus, photoshop etc..

I understand why you wouldn't want to download it, but its not pirate unless you then decide to use all the cracks and hacks they normally pack with them in order to use the software. If you have already purchased it then your have the key and wont need to crack it.

Not all torrent have an ISO + Keygen or cracked EXE. If you know where to look you can find full/true ISOS of various games for those situation.

It is important to point out, as mystic said, This site does not support piracy of any kind and while suggestions and advice are fine, please do not post links to any sites that offer such downloads.

Which no one has, I just feel that it needs stating.

Well, I downloaded a torrent iso file, skipping the cracks and serial file that came with it. I used daemon tools lite to mount the iso, since I only had 4.7G dvd discs.

I'm back in business (sort of). I can't play single player, even with the original game disc in the drive. I'm thinking daemon tools has something to do with this, even though I uninstalled it. There must be traces of it, or drivers somewhere, that securom is picking up.

[ohwell] At least it's not a total loss.

You are left with 2 choices:

- Get a replacement disc for a few $$ of ATVI
- Grab a noDVD EXE - again this is not best practice but if you genuinely have the Disc....
