Recovery Bad CD / DVD

I have some CDs that couldn't read by my CD-ROM. Have any idea any tools / services that could recover the data in the CD ? I have some important data inside.

Thanks..

Try ISOBuster - note: you may need to buy it, but it worked great for me.

Image the disc first.

I would try reading the disc at a slower speed - 1x, 2x, 4x.
Something like CDRWin or Nero or DiscJuggler can make disc images. (You should be able to Google for trial versions, quite easily.)

Once you have the image made, mount it with Daemon-Tools (daemon-tools.cc) and read your files off.

If possible, attempt the image-making process on a CDRW drive - a simple CDROM drive usually has trouble reading some discs, simply due to the quality of the drive components.

If leew's suggestion doesn't work, try that same suggestion on different PC's with different CD-Drives.

did you write those cd's with packet writing software, like incd, or in UDF format? then you'll need to install those programs to be able to read them.
