You could always try scandisk.

Wrap it tightly in cellophane and stick it in the freezer for about an hour. It may work briefly after you take it out.

If not, oh well. Gave it my best shot.

Well since it's the last disc itä's possible that there'äs space left to repair it with scandisc. but if it don't responce at the beginning, it' possible that sector 0 is damadged, and then there's nothing in this world that can bring it back.. Kinda like Kurt Cobain and Jason Mattew Thirsk.. sniff.
