So I wanted to format my HD and did a back up using my new Memorex 4x burner.
I burnt most of my stuff on 2 DVD-r discs, and wanted to test out a DVD-RW disc that came with the drive.
The DVD-RW disc was used to back up my important files. Oddly enough, that is the disc that is giving me problems!!
I have 3 directories on it. 2 directories are databases of programs that I wanted to restore, and the third directory is my entire profile for Win XP.
Inside that directory there is a multitude of stuff, like my favorites, my desktop, my documents, etc etc.
Well, the favorites & desktop contents all copy over to the HD just fine and work perfectly.
The "my documents" are for some strange reason ALL corrupt, along with the other 2 directories on the root of the DVD-RW.
I opened an excel document that was corrupt, and for some reason it showed content from a word document used for class notes.
I tried it on a friend's DVD-ROM, and the same problem occured.
Am I pretty much SOL on this? Why would some of the DVD disc read and not the rest?
