Lost files on CD-R

  daisy2bell 12:25 08 Jun 04

I tried to reload my files etc from a CD-R onto my computer.
Something has gone wrong and the CD-R is listed as being "empty" I have important files which I must recover, but how?
Other CD-RW's open with no problem and files are there, but not this particular disk.

You will need something like BadCopyPro click here there may be free versions of similar data recovery programs on the net.

Ok the problem is the more you use the drive the less chance you have of getting everything back. If you can move the drive to a second pc as the slave drive and run the data recovery progran fron the other pcs drive then this is the best option. If not then use a data recovery program on your pc but you may lose some of what you are trying to save. The program you were looking at costs £31 ... there is a free one click here but my personal favorite is a bit more expensive click here
