read raw data from CD

P: n/a
hi, a backup dvd i have was recently corrupted and Windows wont recognize the
file system. I tried using System.IO.directory.GetDirectories("F:\\"), where
F: is my DVD drive, but no folders (or files, using
System.IO.Directory.GetFIles("F:\\");) are found. is there any way, perhaps
using APIs, that i could read raw bytes from the DVD? thanks

Try ISO Buster - I believe it can read raw data off the CD.
