Can't see files on CD-R (But they are there)

Hello,

I didn't burn the CD-R someone else did.  I can't see it in Windows....  I try to drive at the CD-R and no files show up.  

If I go to Roxio and do Disc Info on it, it does show that there is data.  

How do I fix this?  I thought maybe trying to Finalize it, but that didn't work.  I tried this on several different computers, but nothing is there...  But in my computer, it does show there is data on it it says 238mb used...

The data is there, how do I get it?  

Here is a pic of what Roxio is showing...

Hi StrongD1,

I think you forgot the picture. :)

What type of file(s) are you trying to burn? Is it a .iso image? Miscellaneous?

If the directory structure is at fault you may be able to recover the files with linux. Download Knoppix Live and run from the cd on a computer with two cd drives.

It could be that the disk session was not closed.  This would mean that you could view the disk contents with burning software but not nativly with windows.  Try using Roxio to close the disk.
