    As far as I know, there's no way you can recover data from a broken disc. But data recovery from bad CD or floppy is possible . Use BadCopy Pro.

    Like achacko's link says, it's definitely possible to recover disks from broken cd's, corrupted hard disks and floppy's that have been chopped with scissors (and crumpled :roll: ). Only limiting factor seems to be how much money you are willing to spend on data recovery. Large organisations can afford it, forensic labs do it all the time.

    yeah huzefa is correct. if the cd is not completely broken into 2 or more parts, stick a thin tape on the label side and put the cd in the drive. download and install the CDRWIN demo application. the demo app limits the cd operations to 1x. but you dun want this app to do anything. just install and run to make the cd spin at 1x. this low speed prevents the cd crack from expanding. now open the cd drive contents window and hope that the window shows up at least some contents. if it does copy the ones that are readable.

    i employed this exact method to recover a lot of data from a badly cracked CD!

    Default How to recover MOST of scratched CD data

    I don't know how to recover it from a broken disk but i surely know how to recover MOST of scratched CD data


    I learn an old thecnique to how to recover damaged or scratched disks
    with some lost of data. In this case i have one borrowed game - MAX PAYNE 2
    with a chunck of 4 mb lost with a scratch in CD1 Install. Here we cover some
    special thecniques of how to create a full working CD from the scratched one.

    First some tools will be needed:

    1. Alcohol 120%
    2. UltraISO
    3. Windows XP/2000 (not tested on 95/98/me)
    3. Small piece of cotton
    4. Dry cleaner paper
    5. Finally, oil for cooking.

    First step - preparing the CD

    Get the cotton and drop some water, start cleaning vertically the surface of CD.
    Do it 3 times and dry the water with a piece of dry cleaner paper. With a new piece
    of cotton, drop some oil for cooking and start to wet the surface like you are
    washing the CD with the oil. Dry carefully now. Some particles of oil will stay on the
    microsurface of the scrath. It's okay. Seems the oil helps the laser of the CD/DVD driver
    to read the surface again. Sure this will work with small unreadable scratchs - some hard
    scratchs loose parts of the surface of the CD where we have data and it's lost forever.
    But if it is loosed try anyway. Whith this tip 80% of the small scratched CD's coud be
    recovered.

    Second Step - testing the CD

    With Alcohol 120% make an ISO - image making wizard - and lets see if the app can
    read the loosed surface. In my case Alcohol 120% had recovered 60% of the data.
    This is not enough. Have tryed other appz, they do not recover all the data. But the
    CD/DVD driver laser CAN recover all data in this case. the data is still there, what we do?

    third step - making the new CD

    With the main copy system of windows explorer you can do it. Just create one folder
    with the same name of the CD label for future burn reference, and copy the CD content
    to the folder. When the CD copy process find the scratch, in majority of the cases, it's
    slow down the reading and will recover ALL loosed data.If not, it just tell you there's
    an unreadable sector. In this case your CD is lost. But it's not my case, finally
    windows explorer got all the data from the scratch and made a copy in the folder.
    with the ultraISO, wrote the original CD label, drop the content of the folder and
    save as Iso. You can Test the new CD just mounting the iso in the Alcohol 120%. In my
    case i did ISO of the two discs from MAX PAYNE 2 and tested installing from the mounted
    ISO. Works like a charm. I got the 4 mb lost again. So, I have burned the CD and now i
    have a working copy from the scratched one.

    Sounds too bizzarre, but works. Course you can jump the cleaning process and try to copy
    the content with Windows explorer. But in my case did not work without oil...

    Any comments are welcome.
