Music CD "Not Recognised"


[link to this post]
 
I have a music CD that I am sure Ive played before although some time ago. Now nor my PC nor any of my CD players recognise it, I get No CD message, yet I can see there is something burnt on it.
I have Googled the problem and there are lots of solutions for scratched CDs, which mine is not, but have found this web page which gives a reason for the defect and a rather bizarre solution boil the CD!! The web page looks genuine. What do you think?

That only applies to pressed optical media NOT dye based. If you burnt it a few years ago and the writable media was cheap it's gone. Quality writable media uses dyes that will last between 5 & 10 years.

Thanks for the reply, I guess I've lost whatever music was on the cd then.

You could try ISOBuster if a wash doesn't sort it.
