Unable to Access Some Files on CD's
Posted on 2004-04-23
I just completed a clean install of Windows 98 SE and I'm running into problems with some of the files I'm trying to restore from CD's that I burned before wiping my hard drive. I get "Error copying file. Cannot copy filename. The system cannot read from the specified drive." It's odd too that some files that I got the error on could eventually be accessed, but that hasn't been the case with them all.
I used brand new CDs to copy my files to minimize the possibilty of the CD's being bad. There is one Outlook Express dbx file in particular that I'm my heartbroke over. I can't get Scandisk to even identify the CD Drive as one it can scan. Can it ever scan CD's? I'm not even able to change the attributes of the files in question either
Please tell me what I can do to resolve this. Is there any software that can fix my CDs?
