Did you "close" them off?

If you didn't, put them in the RW drive to read them.

there were other files on the CD-r - my kids took out the DC then did something with the file that were being down loaded...I have tried to re-write those files, but as I said the computer is not even readinf the CD, it freezes and say cannot read CD...

You didn't answer my first question but never mind.

Let me try another one, in your first post you said you couldn't read the CD-R, now you're saying you can't rewrite files. What is the problem? If you list it here in full someone will be able to help you.

Also what does this mean "...took out the DC then did something with the file that were being down loaded.."?

What software are you using to write to the CD-Rs?

I'm sorry I can't help you, as I'm not familiar with that software.

Someone who knows it will pop up and answer you.

Good luck.
