I wrote some files on to a cd-r disk over and over of the same files because i need to transfer the files to other computers. What I did was drag an drop the files into the cd, thats how I burned the files. But now the files wont show up. I use nero to see if files are still there and they are and I tried to extract those files in nero but I couldn't. Are there other ways to get those files?

good call,LucF

There's often incompatibilities, so you cannot always count ont CDs to transfer, but Nero does it better than most.

I'd try passing the files on the network. If the CD maker can see the files, share its drive to the destination PC and copy or xcopy them over. (or, close the disk from further writes, as  LucF mentioned)

Hello,

Are you using a drag-drop interface like InCD or DirectCD?  In that case you are probably accessing the disk with the UDF filesystem, and it cannot be read on many other machines without a driver.

You might need the Adaptec UDF Reader, which is available here:

http://download.com.com/3000-2100-9497911.html?tag=lst-0-1

Symptoms of a UDF filesystem on a CD is being able to tell in windows explorer properties on the drive that it has megabytes of information on it, yet no files show up in the display.

Good Luck

P.S.  The best way to burn stuff onto CD and make it readable everywhere is to use the burning program, be it Nero or Roxio.  Always burn a normal data CD, using multisession if you must.  This can be read almost everywhere.
