I have written some important information into CD using Nero with a higher speed. It was a multisession disc. Now I can't read anything from that particular session. Other data is OK to read. How I recover the data?(it's urgent:embarrassed: )

Finalise the cd and see if that works, or you could try Unstoppable Copier from here... Roadkil.Net

Thanks for reply. but no use
 
Thanks for your reply. But I am afraid to say that it was useless. Now I am tellin my problem more specific:

1) It was OK to read after writing for six or seven days. After it, I don't know I wrote other things in multisession.

2)When I am accessing a picture, computer shows "Can't determine type".

3)When I am accessing a text using MS word it shows some squares on screen.

4)When I am accessing it with notepad, it is purely blank.

Read more spec plz...
 
It has been written to two or three peoples using Nero. Unfortunately all of them were interrupted.(Hint: They use Nero itself but probably a higher version.)

Read my life story:

We four were friends and I worte some important things to CD(3 CDs) as a backup and distributed to the other three. They could read them first and they saved a copy in their hard disks. I have also a backup in my hard disk. But it was formatted when installing Linux. So I requested them to return thier CDs. They did; but all were unreadable. So I requested to send them in e-mail. Unfortunately all the computer hard disks were formatted. The data is now only in 3 CDs. An interrupted copy is also in my hard disk.Please help me!!!:doh: :doh: :doh: :doh: :doh:

Was the disk written to by IN-CD? Which is the nastiest part of the Nero software.

Did you try Unstoppable Copier? You just said useless, I have retrieved data from badly scratched cd's / dvd's with it.

Have you tried Isobuster which is a similar app to to get at your data?

Have you tried Isomagic which is a similar app to to get at your data?

There's more that one way of skinning cats mate...

You say "unreadable"...??????
Does this mean that you can see the data but can't open it to read it or is it that you just can't open any of the discs at all....which leads to the next question....are you getting any type of error message?

have you tried a different CD/DVD player to see if that might be the problem.

Tom Varghese 05-29-2008 09:44 AM

No That's not. It has been checked in three or four drives. But I have a doubt : I never checked Unstoppable copier directly into CD. I have a copy of the same data in HDD and that was corrected using Un..Copier. Then It showed everthing is OK.{ I have not currently the CD in my hand. It will be checked in two or three days}

Well. if you have the uncorrupted cd data on your hard drive all you have to do is burn that to a cdr. Give that a go and see if you can read that cdr...

Tom Varghese 05-31-2008 03:11 AM

I did no use
 
I did write the same and checked. But it shows 'there is no error' and 0% error. I have another doubt. someone said that an old MS word file cannot be read by a new file. Then also a similar symptoms. But I can't read any tipe of file irrespective of the type.:confused:
