Pros

  • Can download the demo for free

Cons

  • Nothing of note

Bottom Line

CDRoller is a no-brainer. Download it, see if it works, if it doesn't (many discs simply can't be recovered) then don't pay a penny.

The makers of CDRoller claim it can recover data from any type of UDF/ISO9660/FAT32 disc that can be written: CD, DVD, HD DVD, Blu-ray.

It's always tricky testing recovery programs, especially those that work with optical discs - there's no way of saying definitively that it can do all it says. We can report, however, that CDRoller worked with several test CDs/DVDs that we keep around for these reviews. The test discs won't load, but they can be read at a low level.

The eight-cell battery that came with our test unit bulges out beneath the tx2 and props up the machine for a better typing tilt. You also get an integrated webcam and mic (as well as two headphone and one mic jack jutting out from below the mousepad). And you get both wireless 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth

Fortunately, you don't have to pay for CDRoller to find out if it works. Simply download the demo and see if it finds the data you're trying to recover. If it does, pay the US$30 and save your data (assuming it's worth $30 to you, of course). The program also erases and writes CD/DVD/BD discs, as well as reads and burns ISO images.

If you have a decent amount of computer knowledge, CDRoller couldn't be easier to use. The company might consider putting a one-button (Recover) interface on for neophytes, but most users will be just fine with all the options and info arranged neatly on the main screen.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
