IsoBuster is an award winning , highly specialized and easy to use CD, DVD and blu-ray (BD, HD DVD) data recovery tool.

No accumulated cost if you need more than one type media supported. IsoBuster is a highly specialized yet easy to use optical media data recovery tool. It supports all optical disc formats and all common optical disc file-systems. Start up IsoBuster, Insert a disc, select the drive (if not selected already) and let IsoBuster mount the media. IsoBuster immediately shows you all the tracks and sessions located on the media, combined with all file-systems that are present.
This way you get easy access, just like Windows Explorer, to all the files and folders per file-system. Instead of being limited to one file-system that the OS picks for you, you have access to "the complete picture". Access data from older sessions, access data that your OS (e.g. Windows) does not see or hides from you etc.
# IsoBuster splash screen, which will stick until the main window is loaded, which can take a while sometimes when a drive is just mounting a 'difficult' disc and is not responding to commands immediately.
# Added option to the GUI (in Options) for administrators to grant low level access to storage devices for other users on the system.
# Multi-language support in the installer itself.
# IsoBuster theme in About box.
# Various icon improvements.
# An object selection is now also available and accessible via the Main Window (File / Sel. Object(s))
# Shift+F10 and context menu (between Alt Gr and Ctrl on the right) button click implemented.
# *.NCD (or subsets of *.NCD) image file support.
# The multi-extent icon next to a file or folder is *not* shown anymore by default, after a fresh install, to avoid confusion, set it in the options if required.
# Updated some of the auto recognizing features for Movie DVDs.
# Changed the more-sessions-in-one-track interpreter to also be able to deal with Nero Cmd made discs (they don't have the typical Nero signature)
# Work-around for a particular drive problem (DL-DT-ST DVD-ROM GDR8163B, or possibly a generation of drives) which caused DVD(+R/W) media not to be mounted OK.
Tracks and Sessions were not always correctly identified.
# Improvement to match IBP/IBQ managed image files to actual CDs in certain drives better, has to do with reserved tracks.
# Load read-only (write protect) IBP/IBQ files but put up a dialog warning for the user and allow him/her to unload the image again.
# Addded a dialog for when the IsoBuster.exe has been changed, to warn the user that there might be a virus on the system.
# Filter and replace illegal characters in file names before extraction for all file-systems, not just only for HFS.
# Various changes here and there to work better with Vista public Beta 2, which has changed considerably compared to previous Vista beta version.
# Various internal improvements, staying up to date with drive evolutions.
# Fixed some minor GUI related issues. You probably never noticed.
# Fixed a rare situation where IB could run into an exception error when there is NO file-system layout on the disc.
# Fixed small bug in the HFS file-extension recognition. Not all known extensions were actually assigned.
# Fixed that some extracted files, via the Mac HFS+ file system, were 2KB too big.
For most files this is no problem, but for text files some editors would display the extra rubbish at the end which is potentionally annoying.
