Recovering data from duff CDROM ?

I burned a CDROM a short while back, and now can't get the damn thing to
mount (even though it would have been checked as OK prior to storage). As
its got data on it that is no longer available from source, I'm wondering
if anybody has any favorite tricks they've used to force a mount.
Its a cheapo Memorex thing from some supermarket, and the data was
originally on an ext2 file system. The data is a collection of MP3
lectures, and was burned as data (not as an audioCD) to this CDROM using
Brasero on a Zenwalk-5.2 OS.
I've tried the usual "auto" and "ext2" mount options, and the "-s" sloppy
mount flag, but the best I can manage is a lot of disk spinning, followed
by a report that the resource is read only (its not) and a mount screen
report about "No such file or directory" available.
Just to be sure I'd actually managed a burn in the first place, I dropped
the disk into a burn process in XFburn (the app I'm currently using on
Slackware) and, as expected, got a report that the CDROM disk was full.
There is no visible evidence of damage on the disk itself. Its shiney new.
I'm open to suggestions about now. Clues anyone?
