cdrw was formatted for drag and drop thru direct cd, using windows xp, roxio basic 5
used the cdrw for about a year, no problem
put it in to use it yesterday and it wouldn't read
a box pops up saying to install udf reader from roxio. i say yes (i thought it was an updtae or something)
the cdrw name is then changed to UDFREADER. that's what it says is the name of the cd.
I tried to recover the files thru direct cd. it gane me the files, all 2900 of them, but they're all "real player" files. i can open them in differant programs, but none of them are named. they're #'d from 1-2900 so i have to try every program i have untill one of them matches what the file is. There were 3 web pages on the cdrw. 2000 of the files could be very minor.
is there no way to access the files correctly?
what the hell is this udf reader and why would it take over my disc?
roxio supposedly has a udf reader in it, but i can not read anything on the disc that was there before.
thank for your efforts to help!!
