Then, after I get as clean of an image as possible I open the image file up in ISOBuster. That's gotten me pretty good results.
Also, try multiple different CD-ROM drives. You'll get different results with different drives. So some blocks that can't read in one drive might read in another. Using DDrescue it's easy enough to switch readers and keep retrying to image to the same file.
Thanks for the suggestion! I will look into it.
