NOTE: I'm not sure if this is the right place to be placing this, but I saw USB, so I assumed CD's would fall under that criteria as well.

I recently had to reformat my computer. For reference on why, click here.

Anyway I had a CD done, and while it was being burnt (I had burnt some data from another user account that was needed) it said that some files were denied due to restrictions. Fair enough I said, and I thought they weren't burnt onto the CD.

Now that I have reformatted my computer, it turns out that they were burnt, but now, none of the files open.

It's all shown, for example, I can see the files/folders, and I can open the folders, but I can't actually use the file itself.

I had a notepad, with some text in it, and when I open it up, it's all just spaces, and blank.

Is there anyway I can recover the Data on the CD, using something?

~ Nino

P.S I am talking about when I view them on the CD through my computer, and when I've copied them to my computer.

I think that means those files are corrupt... dunno if there's any way to recover it. Read about some softwares which can do it somewhere, but I don't trust those.

Yeah, I had a friend help me out. Doesn't think I can get it back either.

Thanks anyway for your post.
