I copied about 40 photos to a cd in a cd writer
but the cd is unreadable.
This can happen if the the cd writer is closed down before it finishes copying.
I have already formated the smartmedia card which held the photos so the only copies are on the apparently unreadable cd.
Any ideas how I can retreive the photos from the cd?

Are the files listed in My Computer>D drive if you insert the CD-R?

If the cd did not finish recording B4 the progam was closed you have a coaster as it cannot be veiwed. I haven't foound a solution to this unless some one knows better.
Didn't you copy them to you hard drive first.

If you use Nero and copy from the hard disk (via the memory card) then Nero will erase the file(s) once the burning has been completed.

There would have to be a permanent file on the HDD to do as you appear to be suggesting.

I probably have a coaster.
