This recording media has gained a reputation for being robust and durable which is generally true. A laser beam is shone on the underside of the disk and the reflection pattern mimics the recorded pattern embedded within. Scratches on this under surface as well as scratches on the top surface which forms the mirror can confuse the laser-beam reader and cause failures in the reproduction. Using specialised techniques it is possible to by-pass the normal reading procedures and provide access to the surviving data.
The charge for this procedure is in the £75 to £295 range.
We offer a no charge diagnosis so that you are aware of any potential costs before you commit to recovery. If the recovery is unsuccessful due perhaps to damage to the actual recording surfaces which cannot be repaired, there is no charge.
