Repairing an ISO image?

Hello!
I have a problem. I've made backups of some of my games by makein ISO images of them and putted them on my harddrive. Now, one of the cds from the original is sratched, so i can't install with that disk! Good thing i have the ISOs, i though. But the files is corrupt! Every program says it's an unknown format, and when i mount it with Daemotools, windows says that the filesystem may be corrupt.

I wounder if it's possible to restore that data that the ISO contained, or maybe repair the image in full, so i can start using it again. I need to burn out the CD to replace my original one.

Thanks!

Try repairing the ISO file with Winrar.Associate ISO format first in Options/Settings/Integration.Good luck.

Try this. It should give you a good copy from the scratched cd. http://www.majorgeeks.com/download2623.html

Why in the world would you make an ISO of your backups? You don't save any space.

Thanks fot the program, i was able to make a copy of the scratched CD, so now i can install!

What i did was that i made a copy of my original game cd in form of an ISO image on my harddrive. I didn't make an image of a backup cd or something..

I prefer ISOS for backup, because they mostly are easy to handle and so on..

Anyway, thank you so much everyone! ;)
