I have a lot of pictures stored on CD-ROM's which over time start to loose data.
I want to recover as much data as possible and store it on my NAS. I have assembled my experience in this blog sort of a tutorial and reference.

1. Install ddrescue (gddrescue)
2. How it works - Manuals
3. Figure out your devices and prepare ddrescue
4. Use it on a damaged CD-ROM (data loss due bad sectors)
5. Recover as much data from data CD-ROM as possible
