I have burned Data to some DVD RW  disks, the operation was successful.
Now I am tryin to restore the data to the hard drive, but I can't see anything in the DVD.

I popped the DVDs into the DVD ROM drive as well as to the DVD RW drive and still can see the data.

any idea?

I'm sorry if I'm misunderstanding you, but you say you can't see anything in the DVD, but then say you can still see the data on the DVD?

Do you mean that on trying to Restore it's not finding anything?  If so, what program are you using to try this?

sorry it's a typo

I can't see any data.

I guess I figured out another solution, I am using the Burner software to copy the DVD to the hard drive, so far there is Microsoft bug window popping up, it should work if I fix this bug.

I downloaded express burn, it seems like it's working, I am creating an ISO image from the DVD to the hard disk. After it's done how do I open the image an see my files??

That's not how an image works.  When you burn an iso, you're burning a bootable image of whatever you've backed up, normally.  It isn't a file directory structure like you're thinking.
