A friend pointed this one out to me and I figured I'd pass it on if you haven't seen it before: http://www.jfilerecovery.com/
It is java based but that should open it up to be used across platforms. Opinions, views and rants welcomed. I haven't tried it fully yet -- have no media that needs something recovered -- but it does sound interesting.

hmm seems like it would be decent for video... but I wonder how it would work with audio... don't have any scratched up cd's though

awesome find! This would work better on higher bitrate media, right?

I honestly can't say because I haven't tested it.

Well, theoretically it should though, at least the way I'm thinking about it. Because if 1KB is corrupted, and the bitrate is 16 Kbps, then you have a larger span of time corrupted than if the bitrate is 320 Kbps. All i was wondering is whether this is correct, or am I thinking incorrectly?

I would suggest that it is simpler to think in terms of percentages?
Like if I have a 2% corruption then that will affect that amount of the playtime?
I agree that the concept of a higher playback speed might make it more effective, but only because the absolute size of the damage (%) will probably be lower?
