CD-R Problem

Please help, I had a datawrite 80min cd-r which had some emails on it, (the size amounted to kilobytes) and I thought I’d add an ISO using Nero. The problem is the original file has disappeared and I’m desperate to get it back. Did I do something wrong? :confused: The cd was not full so why did it erase the other file? Is there a way to get it back? I’ve so far tried some freeware recovery but they didn’t work. :frowning:

Hi and Welcome!

please try IsoBuster to retrieve your data.


thank you for replying and ok I’ll try it :slight_smile:

More info: I tried isobuster, but it did what other recovery software did, it only recovered what is already there, the ISO file.

I want my emails back.

Why did nero overwrite the emails in the first place? I thought we can write to a cd-r again and again till it is full then you can’t write to it anymore unlike a cd-rw where once it’s full you can still write to it if you want.
