Hi, another newbie needs your help!
Used the Linux software Xfburn to put a bunch of pictures (all .jpgs I think) and other miscellaneous files onto re-writeable DVDs (Sony DVD+RWs). Did this so that I could reformat HDD of friends PC to get Windows back on it.
Unfortunately I didn't think to check whether discs had burnt properly. I assumed that when the discs were ejected from the drive the burning process had completed. When I did come around to trying to get the pictures back the discs appeared blank. Is there any software out there that will allow me to make an image file (an ISO or something similar) from a disc that (to the computers mind) doesn't have anything on it? I figure this is the first step in getting the data back.
Few extra notes... I've tried a couple software programs to get data back, only software I had any sign of joy from (so far) was ISOBuster, but not complete joy. When using ISOBuster on my friends PC (running WinXP) I could see an image track of around 4.3GB, which is about right IIRC. When I tried ISOBuster on the laptop at home (running Vista) on the same disc I get nothing. My friends don't exactly live around the corner so I'd like to see if I can extract the data from home.
Settings I used to burn the discs were the default ones in Xfburn for new data composition, if that helps.
Any advice here is welcome, really don't want to give up on getting irreplaceable data back. Thanks.
