I have a CDR which contains pictures that I have backed up from my digital camera, I have not looked on the disc for a while, but when I insert the disc and open it up, there is no pictures shown on the disc and also the disc shows that there is 0 bytes free on the disc, but there was only two/three pictures on the disc so the disc would have been far from full. Is there a program that would allow me to recover these pictures off the CDR or will the pictures be lossed for ever. I am running XP Professional.
Thanks all, tried these but the CDCheck program found the pictures but I could not recover them as I needed to purchase/register it, which I don't really want to do as I think it would be a gamble to pay for it incase it still could not recover them, the CDCheck program could not find/recover anything, anyone else with any other suggestions/programs.
hi fatboyslim.... i think nero 5.5 had the option to recover files from a cdr ..but if memory serves the function only worked in win 98 and was lost when xp came along... i had a similar problem when i first got xp and emailed ahead (nero)and they very helpfully gave me a workaround...but i have long since forgotten what it was . do you have access to a 98 machine and nero 5...might just sort your problem .Dave.
hi again if nero can see the sessions then it should also be able to pull the files off the disk . create a new iso disk ,then in the browse menu and with the cd in the drive drag all files off the disk and burn to a new cd ....hope it works for you ...Dave
hi again in burning rom, when you first open the program,you are given a menu ...with the option to choose between cd or dvd, choose cd and a menu appears, first option in this menu is cd (iso) remember to make it multi session if you want to add more files later )click on new ..top right hand side ,then a new window will open with the browse option on the right look for your bad cd in the menu open it with the plus sign then drag any files on it to the left hand window then click on the burn icon and put in your blank cd ......job done .Dave
