Burned disks no longer work

I backed up a large number of files to CDs about 2 years ago. I accessed the files recently and it looks like most of the disks are not readable by windows. The last time I accessed these disks was about 8 months ago and all was fine. Is there any freeware our there (or relatively cheap shareware) that I can use to see if the data is recoverable (and possibly recover it)?:frowning:

Yes there is… You can use a program called CD-R Disgnostic. For more info check here. I used it for a crashed CD-RW disc with good results. Almost all data could be retrieved…
