    I need help. my stupid useless and rotten computer/CD says/is corrupted. I have like hundreds of really cool pics there. (of the awsome winter storm, of WILD VFT'S FLOWRING!!!, caves in VA, etc...) so I REEEEEEEEEEAAAAAALLLLLY want to see 'em again! I'm sick and tired of my pictures being deleted and stuff.
    so.... any suggestions? I put the disk in the computer, it makes the usual noise but then stops and starts over and over and over... then when I take it out it says that the disk might be corrupt or something. is there anythign I can do to un-corrupt it? I heard of some machines that repar them... can they repair corrupt disks?

    Try using a cd cleaner. If that doesn't work try a cd repair agent. Also, I find quite often that if a disk doesn't work on one computer it may work on another.

    When you save on a CD, use a recordable ® not a RW. The computer will read it better.

    aaahhh... mine's a RW.
    the thing is that it can read my other RW (same brand, etc). that's the only one it can't.
    I suck... a CD cleaner as in a chemical?
    and a CD repair agent as those machines that repair scratches?
    or I'm I totally wrong?

    the repair is a chemical as well, like a polish. You can buy it almost anywhere. You should still try it on another computer. My laptop will read some of my RWs, but not all, eventhough they are brand and batch. It read all of the Rs.
