I burned a CD-R by using drag-and-drop with Windows XP (licensed software from Roxio), without fancy CD burning software like Nero or real Roxio. I realized there was more room so I added more to the same CD. But I couldn't figure out how to add these files so I reopned 'My Computer', clicked on the CD and selected "write these files to CD". Instead of appending these files, I think it somehow overwrote the original file allocation table as now Windows doesn't see any of the old files on it. But when I turned the CD over I can see two distinct areas, presumbly the 2 separate areas.
Unfortunatley I don't have backup of the 1st set of files and I was wondering if I could salvage my foolish mistake?
Later I figured out that I had to open the CD first, then choose the "write these files" option. It's a bit too late for me now. Can anyone help??
