I was trying to burn a CD of images (wedding photos!) and I think it completely wiped the data from every file.
Here's what happened:
1. Put a blank CD into computer (running Windows 7).
2. Went to My Computer and clicked on the CD drive.
3. Selected burn as a CD/DVD as opposed to a USB drive where files cold be edited.
4. Proceeded to drag and drop the 5+ folders of pictures to burn into the CD folder.
5. Clicked on Burn to Disk
6. Got a message that there was way too much data
7. Clicked okay and ejected the CD
I decided to use a flash drive instead, so I didn't do that much that day. But now, a few days later, I am going back to the folders and putting them on the flash drive. I noticed that it was going way to quickly, and so I went into the folders and saw that every single file it is zero bytes. There is no file data either -- no create date, modify date, etc. This only happened to the pictures I tried to burn, all other folders are fine. I have no idea what to do or how this happened, has anyone heard of this before? Is there a way to get the pictures back??
