Hi guys, and girls…I had to rebuild my hard drive and made a multi-session disc using Nero 6 Ultra, since I completed the rebuild I cannot recover the data from the disc, it just shows it greyed out and I have 100’s of my photo’s on there as well as loads of data and contacts. Can anyone help? how do I finalise the disc? I have tried Nero but it tells me “Illegal disk” and using DVD decrypter does not see the data on the diak at all PLEASE HELP!
You need to use a data recovery program specifically for DVDs and CDs. Try this program:
Good luck…I know that sinking feeling well…been there, done that!
How man ;)…
Try ISObuster to finalise it. If not it should allow you to read all sessions anyway.
Edit: Eeee… Stroppy got there first!
Hi Geordiedog06, glad you found the right forum!
Sounds like you might have used bad media, or it might have been a bad burn (I too have done it).
As well as stroppy’s suggestion, give ISOBuster a shot, to see if you can grab something off the disc.
Uhhh…and imkidd got there before me!
Ah…the keyboard is mightier, and faster than…eeek! Don’t worry, imkidd57…great minds…eat sushi!
Guys what can I say?? I want your children!! Only kidding but serious you have NO IDEA how pleased I am to have recovered the data using ISO Buster there were 10 years of contacts on the disk all now safely saved again a BIG thanks guys
Is okay…you senda the money pronto…huh…?
Did you used packet writing on the disc? I’d recommend DVD ISO format if you want to use multi-session. Also stick with HIGH-QUALITY media. The dye on re-writable media can be flaky, so stick with write-once stuff.
Great stuff, glad we could help!
And LMAO @ stroppy
Sounds like you attended the same university I attended===Whatsa Matta U.
