Can anybody help me?

I recently had a pretty major system failure (check out my other threads) and decided that the only way to deal with the problem was to use my reload cd to restore the PC to its factory settings. This was done successfully. Before i used the reload cd i went into files and settings transfer wizard and made a copy of my settings on a dvd rom (or so i thought). the only problem is, that when i insert the dvd rom i made and try to run the files and settings wizard again, it tells me that the wrong disc is inserted and prompts me to insert disc 1. Only problem is...... I only made one disc!!! :thumbsup:

Does anyone know what i've done wrong and whether there is any way to get at some of the files from my old system because some of them were quite important.

Thanks

DVD-Rom drives are not capable of copying files you will need a CD Burner.

Have you put the disk in the drive and go to My Computer and double click the drive and see if there were anything on the disk?

Try just opening the disc with Windows Explorer and copy or drag the files to your hard drive.
