.......and Error 105

This happens when I try to read an 8yr old CD
Other CDs open normally!

I suspect the CD has become unreadable but any hope of recovery?

Badcopy Pro click here
CDCheck click here

Isobuster is another good one.

Thank you.

CDCheck seems to have disappeared.

Badcopy Pro may well work but although I installed it and ran it, things got more complicated and because my heart wasn't in it,... gave up.

I found the file I needed in a corner of a list on my backup Ext HD.
Quite the best way to recover!

It was a map from inside my uncle's Grest War diary.
The CD is 13 years old and is a Memorex disk.
I think this is one more example of the frailty of electronic data storage. If it matters that much - keep check-reading and making new backups.
Thank you again for your interest.
