if the burning  program said that a file cannot be copied, then it is not copied, so probably you ended up with only the filename on the CD. You can try recovering with following soft, but i doubt it will help you

Before formatting your hard disk, which method did you use to copy the files ? (For example, InCD, built-in Windows CD-Recording etc )
