Hi Everybody..

I have a CD-RW and i have saved an email backup i did a couple weeks ago... the problem is when i try to read that information inserting the disc into a cd unit, it only shows UDFREADER installer and lunchs it.... i install the software but nothings happens.. it continues showing the same files.

I have tested this on windows 98 and windows xp,also in different machines, but it's the same..

Is there a way to recover my information or have i lost it forever????.. maybe a free tool or something.. please help me.. i need that information..

Thanks a lot,

Reginaldo Bray

Is this CDRW readable in the original cd burner that was used to burn it?  Sometimes older cdrom drives are NOT able to read CDRWs and the newer ones will.  You may want to take a look at the below post if it still doesn't recognize it:
