There are a few threads about file recovery here, but my question's a little different, so I decided to make a new topic.

I had some picture files (mostly JPGs) on a CD-RW for a slideshow. After I was done with them, I got rid of everything on the disc and put some MP3s on it later. I didn't save all the pics to my hard drive, only the ones I needed. Now I'm wanting to look at some of the ones that were on the disc that I didn't copy to my computer.

Is there any way to recover files on a CD-RW that have been deleted (or overwritten)? I don't have a clue the exact steps I took for getting rid of the files, as it was a while back.

I've tried CD Data Rescue 2.5, inDisc Recovery 3, and Power CD DVD Recovery 2, but they only find the MP3s... which... really aren't... hard to find. I also tried several other data recovery programs, but they're only for HDDs and Floppy discs. Very cool, but no help at the moment.

If there's something about the way CD-RWs work that make it impossible, that's fine, no big deal. If I can get them, that'd be nice, but nobody's going to get killed over it or anything.

Well, they could. I can't think of a plausible circumstance in which that would happen, but I can't very well guarantee it won't. What do you think I am, psychic? Sheesh.

Once a file, whether it be on your hard drive or on a CD is actually overwritten, it would be very difficult and next to impossible to retrieve it without very special and expensive help.
