How do these recovery tool works ?

These CD/DVD recovery tools have algorithm through which they can read data as usual from the device where it is not damaged & when the damaged part comes it uses an special algorithm. In this special algorithm execution the speed of rotation of device is extremely slowed  down. After slowing software tries to read data from there. It tries to read data from damaged part almost 15-20 times to make sure almost all recoverable data is recovered. Then again after recovering data it runs as usual but when again a damaged location is encountered then again special algorithm comes to action.
