  • Missing Images

    I'm not sure if this is the right forum but I could use a little help. About a month ago I burned about 600 Megs of images on a CD. No problems. Yesterday I tried to retrieve some old flower photos and they wouldn't open up. The CD just sat there and ran but nothing happened.

    If I go to windows explorer and look at the contents of the CD, all the files are there. I can open about 1/3 of the images.

    I tried the CD on my old machine with the same results.

    There are no scratches or any other visible problems.

    Anybody else have a problem like this?

    Sorry to hear about your problems accessing your files

    I have had simlar problems before with disks. I have got round the problem by either using another computer to retrieve the files ( I have on occation used several different drives without any luck and then all of a sudden the files come off?????!) or you could try copying the disk with something like nero or a simlar program.

    Have you tried taking the files off the disk into another folder on your computer one at a time? or are you just trying to open them?

    Hope this helps

      Crone I have not tried to copy the disk with Nero. I do have that program on my machine. I'll give it a try.

      I have tried 3 different cd drives with no luck.

      I can salvage some of the files by taking them off one at a time.

        I don''t know if this will help but I've used this program to recover files from a damaged disk. They have a demo .

        Hope it helps you.

            I have a question that I HOPE someone can answer for me. I have been working on photo's and then saving them to my hard drive. I got a little nervous about putting all that information there in case of a crash and thought it would be a good idea to move them over to a CD. I saved them all in "Direct...

            Archiving CD's

            If you use Cd's for archiving purposes, is there a particular type of CD that you use? If there is, why do you choose it over the others?

            Backing Up Files
            by bcarll
            What's the opinion here on using FLASH DRIVES to backup files and to store home snapshots on? Seems I read somewhere that the flashdrives are great for short term storage but avoiid long time storage.
