Cd Recovery

I've just stumbled across a program called CD Recovery Toolbox Free, which claims to recover files from damaged cds. Anyone used it and, if so does it work on music cds?

How is your CD disc damaged? Had a PS2 disc badly scratched by my six year old son and it would not load giving an error message. Used a typical kitchen 'cream cleaner' to polish it in a movement from centre to outer motion then buffed it up with a clean cotton cloth and it works ok now. Bit of a risk I know! Try the free program first and if that recoveres most of your files, then, try the manual polishing to see if the CD will play all of the files.

Thanks discs damaged yet, just trying to find out if this program has been tried successfully by anyone. And yes I've heard of your buffing system, also works with whitening toothpaste I believe.
