Try a different computer. If the quality is borderline it's possible that a different drive will be able to read the data. For backup of important data such as archiving photos I always recommend making two copies and checking them once a year just in case one becomes unreadable.

If this is only your backup disk, can't you just make another backup from the originals, or have you lost the originals?

Basic but have you tried cleaning the dvd

i had to do a complete system rstore so i lost the originals. and i have a couple of disks with some of the pic but none of my new baby. i have also tried cleaning the disk. is there no software i can try to recover them?
