When I reformatted my hard drive I backed up my files to a CDRW disc. This disc has now become corrupt and even just viewing it causes windows explorer to hang. Does anyone know how I can get the files off the CD please.

There is someone who comes on here who says that CDRWs are creations of the devil and he wouldn't use them even as bird scarers.

I agree completely.
