I've a badly scratched VCD whose content can't be copied to hard disk. My OS is Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Windows can't copy the 750 MB video file. I also tried CDCheck and Recover Disc. Both of them are terribly slow to copy the content as there are too many scratch and thus too many read errors. For example Recover Disc was able to store only 6% after 1 hour. As the copying was taking so long time I didn't finish it.
Surprisingly, the video file can be viewed smoothly by VLC or jetAudio. I don't understand - if there are too many scratch on the CD so that Windows and other software can't copy it, how the media players are able to play it? If they can play it, the content should be recoverable. How can I recover it (copy it to hard disk)?
