I have 2-3 3-yo CDs of my backups that I cannot open now. I know that I stuffed
up some CDs by forgetting to close them but I'd still expect them to be read in
the same drive. They are all the same brand. I usually verify my backups after
burning, so I am surprised that I'd have kept a CD if it was known to be a dud.
Is there a tool that will let me see what's on them?
