Good luck with the recovery.  I do not envy you the task.  I saw a
presentation in New Hampshire a few years ago that may help you.

The presenter was one of a team that won the 2006 forensic file carving
challenge.  The competition required automated recovery of files from a
"damaged" file system in an iso; a situation similar to yours.

The presenter, Andy Bair, would be a great visiting speaker.  

Good luck.
