it has been suggested to me that maybe the disc was not 'finalised'? means little to me but maybe a brainy out there could elucidate.

See if you can save another pic to the disc.

to update on this i can play the music files on there but none of them play as the title says they are, if that helps to tie it down a bit, the cd was made as i say about 6 months ago when old pc was being returned for refund.

just a polite bump in case some weekenders might have some new ideas.

my thanks for all your efforts it does seem that finalising is the prob i have been suggested to use cdrwin to recover the prob. or go to this site which i shall post as may be of use to someone else

and get badcopy pro which is supposed to be all singing dancing recovery
