unable to access two cdrws

  ballpen 14:25 19 Mar 2008

I'm unable to access two rewriteable cds, one with 11 mb left, the other less than a third full, all with Jpeg images.
Using Nero 6 OEM suit 1 as creator I was previously able to read the discs. Now both discs on access show file, auto run, and the html box. (Nero information read files) Please can you help as this has happened before but has come back unlike this time. I've tried Nero but all you get are questions, nothing related to mine, and uninstalling with no effect.
Is there any software that can open discs when this occures ?

If you can see the contents of the discs in Windows Explorer, you should be able to open them using the generic viewer, Paint, or even be able to load it into word, Wordpad etc. However, if the CD is damaged, it is doubtful you get anything off. Using CD is all well and good, but ideally you should store more than one copy on different media types.

CD-rw are poor for retaining data due to the low reflection of the laser from the disk.

Far better to use a normal CD-r on multisession untill its full then finalise it.

Always make two copies, on different media, of anything you want to keep.
