Hi All!

I had saved quite a lot of files and programmes onto a CD-R before re-installing a new HD. Then I, and a friend, while trying to save onto another CD-R (or so we thought) unfortunately erased the 1st CD-R which was still in the drive! AWWW!!!
Now it just sjows up as empty. Any hopof recovery??

Is it a CR-R or a CD-RW? Once data has been put on to a CD-R it can't be erased. If its a CD-RW then that's a different matter I can point you in the direction of some recovery software but did you re-format the disk? If not how did it get erased?

Hi. Thanks for your reply. Actually it IS a CD-RW ! I think it may be reformatted. We attempted to copy files on to it (thinking we had taken out the disk and put in another one) but stopped it almost immediately so I dont quite know what damage is done!
