How to recover files from old CD/DVD-R?

I have a decent number of 10+ year old CD-Rs and DVD-Rs, and a few of them have started to go south. I'd like to pull off as much of the data as possible, even if it means an audio glitch or a corrupted bit of an image here and there. (Where at the moment, the OS X Finder just gives up and I don't get any part of the damaged file at all.) Is there an app or technique you would suggest for this purpose? [more inside]

How can I burn these .Mod files?

I have some.MOD video files (each one about 2 hrs long) that need to be burned on to a disc, stat. Windows Media players burner says it will not fit, even though the file is only 3.7 gigs and the disc can hold 4.7 gigs.

I really love sharpies, for what it's worth.

I always use sharpies to label burned cds, and it's never been a problem, even after years. How about all of youse? How about DVDRs? Is the expected lifespan of the media really meaningfully shortened? Are the people who are selling special markers and Lightscribe, etc. just out to make a greasy buck off of my paranoia?

The search for dual-layer discs

Is there some reason that dual-layer DVD-Rs are hard to find? I can't find them at my tiny city's Office Depot and (rolling eyes) Wal-Mart, and I'm not sure whether this is just a fluke or if big box retailers simply don't carry them.

What kind of DVD burner should I get?

Copying DVDs. A friend of mine was recently burgled and lost his rather pricey DVD collection. I now fear for my own. At present, I do not have a DVD burner of any type. What are best? Computer kinds or TV kinds (ie, those double dvd decks I sometimes see on eBay)? Is there a reason to avoid either? I would for the most part just be copying DVDs and really not backing computer shit up. However, I'd like to copy the entire DVD (menus, extras, etc.). Thanks! [more inside]
