Ok, I need all the help I can get. Stupid me left a CD full of important backups sitting on the stereo and the magnet has erased the CD. I don't care how much it costs, I need this data back.

what is going on in here?

Since when are CD's magnetic, is this some sort of parody?

Clearly the Cd is upside down.
The only solution is to turn your computer/stereo/Car upside down to read the data from it.
