What is an ECC file?

DVDisaster Error Correction

These ECC files are generated by the DVDisaster software, which is a CD / DVD backup program. Notable functions of DVDisaster include the ability to fully recover optical media data even when read errors are present in the CD / DVD. This allows users to create a fully functional CD or DVD copy of the optical media disk with read errors.

These ECC files are also known as DVDisaster Error-Correction files. Since the DVDisaster program is integrated with data protection functions, CDs or DVDs with read errors may be fully recovered and copied unto a new optical media disk by the DVDisaster software.

DVDisaster is available for Linux and Unix operating systems. There are no known third-party applications that can be used to open these .ecc files.
