Recover lost data on CDRW

Does anyone know how to recover data on a cdrw disk that was improperly ejected, session not closed? The cdrw appears blank, but I know that it is not. This disk has alot of important stuff on it. Please help. I have heard about a program that comes bundled with some drives called Media Doctor(have no idea who makes it). Any suggestions?

Are you using the copier to view this, because if your using a normal cd-rom sometimes it won't read them if the disk is not finalised and only the copier will be able to access them

Are there any other options besides sending it to Mexico? Yes, I'm using the recorder to read it, its also the one it was written with. an HP SureStore 7200i.

Well u have 2 choices.
1.-Get NERO cd burning software and probably can finish the cd so u can read it.
2.-Get a software called TIRAMISU.
This software can recover almost any format of data.

Ok, Heres something strange. I have a comp at my girlfriends house with a Multi-read cdrom drive (not a copier). I took the cdrw over there this morning and threw it in just to see what would happen. There it all was. everything that I had on the disk was fine. I threw  everything on Zip disks and transfered everything to my other comp. The copier reads all my other cdrw's except this one. I guess I'll just reformat it and see what happens. Thanx for the help.
