Hello,

First time here so I'm not sure if I have the right forum. I have a cd-r that I can't read. When I click on properties, it says it is a full disk, but when I open it, there is nothing there. Were the files hidden somehow?? Just wondering.
Thanks

I think I had this problem before. There could be alot of causes, Maybe other people will know how. How was the CD-R Created? Sometimes if it was left open by one computer's burning Software, Your computer (without that program, eg. Nero) won't read it.

or if the cd was written with DirectCD... (adaptec, now roxio, packet writing software)
and the cd is unreadable, the format of the cd can be damaged...
usually i don't recommend software you have to purchase, but i used this
package to rescue a client's whole Italian vacation photos (only copy he had of them)
from a damaged DirectCD disc, only lost the ones where the actual scratch
was... about seven photos.

cdroller's website

the program is pretty straight forward about what to do.

enjoy
