Default CD read errors....

Was wondering if anyone had any ideas about how to recover data on some old backup CD's that are not reading and giving me read errors. I tried imaging them as well, but no luck with that either.

Is there any way to recover the data on these discs? they arent too badly scratched, and I really need some stuff on them!

Wipe the disc with a tissue to warm it up and get rid of the dust. I usually huff on my cd's so that the hot air would condense on the cd.


My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.
