Burnt dvd now recognised as blank dvd :(

  Teasle 15:43 11 Mar 2008

I burn my backups on to CD and DVDs using Nero. Yesterday when I inserted one of the previously burnt DVDs into the DVD drive, Incd automatically ran and instead of Windows XP asking me what I wanted to do with the disk (usually open pictures with windows explorer etc), I got the message about what I wanted to burn to blank disk. I tried to view the images using photoshop but nothing appeared. I tried some of my other backup disks and I got the same message each time with nothing showing on the disks. BTW I have often previously viewed and copied files from these disks back to my pc.
After googling, I assumed the problem was with Nero and Incd so I used the Nero clean tool to uninstall Nero from my pc.
Now I can use most of the disks as per normal but there are still a couple where the computer doesn't seem to recognise that there is anything on them.
Is there anything I can do? Do you think the data on these disks has gone forever?
Any thoughts would be gratefully received.

Is it just the dvd's that it won't recognise or both dvd's and cd's?

Originally, it was both. After I uninstalled Incd, it is just 2 of the DVDs that it won't recognise the files.
Does this help?

Further to the above, I notice that when I insert a dvd it does like, the icon on windows explorer says DVD-ROM D-drive where as when I insert a problem disc, the icon changes to DVD-RAM D-drive.
