How to recover Data from Scratched Disk

There is a scratched disk which I have no idea why the scratched happened. Also, disk did not finalize on my DVD recorder.

Is it possible to recover Data from a scratched disk?
Or, if it's not possible, is there a good program for this issue? Because, there are several programs on-line, however which program is good for a non-expert computer?

Any help on this issue would be truly appreciated.

If the scratch is light you can polish the disc so the head will read, if it's deep it's toast!

I have never tried a recovery software when I scratched a disk. I polish them to remove the scratch. I have a polishing kit purchased back when CD's and DVD's were popular that works quite well. Just like polishing a paint finish you start with a coarse grade and work to finer and finer grits.
