I'm trying to recover data from a badly scratched vcd.
In windows I tried to make an image with ImgBurn, it retries with errors, so
I could get to a good 80% but after some time the program hangs. I thought
to use a rescue dedicated program, here ddrescue comes into play!
Here what I did:
ddrescue -b 2048 /dev/sr0 /myImage.img /myLog.log
What happens is that in a few seconds the error size grows to 650 MB, then
it starts "splitting failed blocks" and the "time from last successful read"
just keeps growing forever, I let it run for many hours with no change
(other that in the time that keeps getting bigger and bigger).
Am I doing something wrong, some option missing or what does it mean?
Any help really appreciated,
thank you very much,
