Hi Everyone. My first post.
A friend of mine has sent me the following plea for help:
I have a DVD that has 7 programs/videos on it, I recorded an 8th one and it didnt record properly and now I cant play any of the original 7 videos. Does anyone know whether through a piece of software or other means I can delete the 8th program retrieve my 7 original programs and re-record the 8th (I still have this on video).
Which got me thinking…
When I burn data onto a CD on my computer, the software has to put all the files together into one iso file, and then burn it on as one big file.
To add a file I have to create a new iso, erase the CD, and then burn on the new iso.
So how does a DVD recorder record continuously onto a DVD disk?
I think the answer might help me get a handle on what’s going on with my friends disk, and whether he’s got a chance of recovering the original seven.
