Creating CD images and burning them to an optical disc are tasks that have become rather common and this is the reason for which many utilities have been created to allow users to handle such file types and operations.
During the process of assembling several files into a valid compilation that can be written to disc with a dedicated software errors may occur and having the tool to detect and fix those faults is a must.
One such application is Cdmage. It can scan, identify and repair corrupted sectors, not to mention the fact that it accompanies each error with a description that will let you know what went wrong in there.
The interface is rather simple since the main focus is on functionality rather than good looks. The commands are well organized and easily accessible so you can start working in no time at all.
The great thing about this software is the extensive support for burning modes and CD image types. Thus, Cdmage is able to work with the well-known ISO, BIN, CUE and NRG formats, as well as some less common ones, including TAO, MM2, CCD, FCD, VCD, CDI or RDB.
Insofar as the supported burning modes are concerned, the program recognizes Mode1/2048, Mode1/2352, Mode2/2336, Mode2/2352, Mode2/2056, CDI/2352, CDI/2336, CD+G/2448 as well as Audio/2352 tracks.
The error correction mechanism can repair many defects, but you should note that it doesn't have a rate of success of 100%.
All things considered, Cdmage is certainly one of the best applications of its kind and can prove to be very helpful in case you need to quickly repair errors that have occurred while creating disc images. With a solid feature pack and thanks to its ease of use, the software is well suited for less experienced as well as advanced users.
