AnyReader is great for copying files from scratched CD/DVD/HD DVD/Blu-ray or defective floppy/hard disks. Normally, when your computer is unable to copy files from a damaged disk it will abort and delete the part of the file it has copied. AnyReader will continue copying the file right to the end; any data that hasn't been recovered after several retries is replaced with blanks. This will allow you to effectively read every byte of information that can be read.
Here are some situations where AnyReader can help: your CD/DVD/HD DVD/Blu-ray drive can't read a bad, scratched or trashed disks; the standard copying method fails because of an error, such as "(Bad CRC) A cyclic redundancy check (CRC) checksum error occurred", "Cannot read from the source file or disk", an unknown error or a bad disk; you have 2 bad copies of a file that you would like to put right; you can't download a file across a wireless LAN because of a bad connection.
The latest version comes with a new feature: audio CD ripping.
What's new in this version:
Version 3.14: Support of Windows 8 added; Minor corrections and bug fixes.
