I was disappointed to see on "Save Our Sounds" that the Library of Congress
considers peeling and flaking lacquers irreparable. I have one such disk,
and was hoping that the prognosis was more positive.
I figure that if anyone knows the definitive answer(s), it must be one or
more of the members of this group. Is a peeling/flaking lacquer disk truly
irreparable? Are there any optical methods of retrieving the audio
information from these disks?
Any responses, including negative ones, will be *greatly* appreciated.
