Update: Just tried mount -t iso9660 /dev/sr0 /home/user/temp

and got 'mount: /dev/sr0: can't read superblock' as the error.

A broken disk can hardly be mounted.
It must be read on device level, unmounted.

This is a different error to the others, so maybe the superblock is
barfed on the cdrom disk? If so, maybe its beyond recovery?

Its a read:write disk, so there may be a trick yet?

I recommend ddrescue warmly.
