Hi there,

I'm not sure if this is the correct section to post this issue I'm having, but here goes...
I have several burnt CD-R's from about 8 yrs. ago that I am trying to access the files. All the CD's are fine, except for one. I can see the files on the disc, but computer will not seem to copy the files over. I've tried dragging files onto Desktop, copy & paste into a folder, send to..., etc. -- nothing. Computer just sits there "thinking" of copying over the files, and sometimes copies what looks to be a file, but the file is not properly copied over (ie, is not the correct size in bytes).

I've also tried getting the files off on 2 other computers -- a Dell desktop (I forget if its Windows 7 or XP), and a very old IBM laptop (I think running Windows 95) -- still no luck. Computer I'm using now is Acer Aspire 5251-1007 laptop, and is running Windows 7 Home Premium.

Please let me know if there's anything I can do. I've already tried ISOBuster but that didn't seem to work.

What kind of files are these?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
