Hi, I have a cd-r that I keep some of my files on, I have opened it many times before but all of a sudden it wont open. I have many important files on it so I am desperate to open it, any suggestions? My computer will open other disks so it isn't that what has gone wrong, the only thing that I have done to it since I last opened it was added some files but I do this on a daily basis and it has always been ok up until now. I am using xp home...Thanks
i HAVE ALREADY TRIED IN IN MY LAPTOP AND IT WONT OPEN IN THAT EITHER, HOW CAN it get damaged? I have used it 4 ot 5 times with no problem? does cycle redundancy check mean that I cant get at the files?
Unfortunately it's always best to assume a worst-case scenario with important data, regular backups and/or duplications are the only safeguard. You can get at the files, but the data will be corrupted.
