Got a thread going here on this issue...

The files are on a Sony CD-R 700 mb. I burned them to the CD-R from My
Documents on my CPU. I burned the files to the CD-R and opened them in the
past on numerous occasions. But, now I can't open the CD-R.

Thanks for your interest in this matter.

AJR,

You've made two misstatements.

1) The Compact Disk File System (CDFS) is based on the ISO 9660 Standard.
FAT
and NTFS do not apply to CD media. See this:

http://www.diskinternals.com/glossary/cdfs.html

2) The + & - symbols are only meaningful for DVD media. See this:

Joe - fomat refers to the file format on the CD (FAT or NTFS). You do not
state the CD type and how it was recorded - CD-RWs (rather than -R or
+R)
may not be readable on a drive other than the one on which it was
recorded.

Thanks for the info...didn't know there was a hole I could use to open
the
CD/DVD tray.

I guess I should have written my post to be a little clearer. I'm not
talking about the CD/DVD tray; I'm talking about the actual CD/DVD.
When I
put it in the tray and try to open file on the CD/DVD (via drive H).
that's
when I get the message re the error code.

Anyone know how to open a damaged CD/DVD?

Thanks.

JK

there is a pin hole on the tray and by pushing in a straightened
paperclip, the drawer will unlatch.

I've got a CD-ROM I can't open.

The error window states, "DISK IS NOT FORMATTED. Windows cannot read
from
the disk. The disk may be corrupted, or it could be using a format
that
is
not compatible with Windows."

I'm using the Windows format, so I figure the disk is probably
corrupted.
I've cleaned it, checked it for scratches (none), and it doesn't look
like
the disk is full, so what can I do to open it?

I've got some files on the CD-ROM I need.

Thanks in advance.

JK
