Recover file from CD

  Monoux 17:09 02 Oct 2006

Some years ago I put together a Powerpoint project and put the finiished file on CD.
I cannot now get the CD to respond. In fact when I use Windows explorer I get a message " Windows cannot read from this disc ". If I use Powerpoint to try and open the file it does not see it in the open file dialogue box. If I use Nero Burning ROM and ask for disc info it tells me there is a 539Mb file on the disc

Any ideas how I can recover this file please without going to lot of expense

I think I should pack it in, I don't think Drive Rescue covers CD's either. There is one but I can't remember the name it's something like iso***

Hi all
many thanks for your efforts and yes rawprawn you did get there in the end - well done for being persistant

mattyc_92 -- You say the free addition should be OK. Ive downloaded from thec site but it wants me to register and pay to recover the files -- am I missing something ?

Just click the "Don't register" (or words to that effect)
