DVD-RW error in reading.. looking for help

I burnt a DVD using a DVD-RW (which are horrible by the way)... and lost a good chunk of data on the DVD

I have a good portion of the RW disc empty (if that is in any way useful)

So, the disc had a backup of my computer because I wanted to format it and reinstall windows in order to have a faster laptop to burn DVDs.

I have tested the DVD on 2 drives and it gives me the same errors. The drive is readable, the TOC is intact, but when I try to access ANY document from the "My Document" directory burnt onto the DVD, all I get is garbage.

I ran some utilities with DVD X Rescue and it told me that I had 2.2% soft errors.

What I wanted to know is if there were any other programs I could use to examine the disc and possibly recuperate some of the lost files.
