    Hello good people,

    Please help me rescue data from a CD-RW that WinXPProSP2 cannot access.

    On one CD-RW it reports being unable to copy data due to CRC error.
    On second one, it cannot read disc at all, reports corrupted or incompatible disc.

    There is no obvious physical damage on the discs.

    Is there a proven software that can access data on CD and bypass this?

    Alternatively, is there a program that can clone an image from such a CD (I'd like to send them to professional data recovery service, but I'd like to back them up first).

    Already attempted:
    Through cleaning of the discs
    Trying in other computers
    Several free/demo recovery programs from the web, all working under WinXP

    Many thanks
