Now unreadable CDRW CD



I am using a Creative Labs 4224RW. I have backed up many programs from internet onto a RW CD. After a month or so, for some reason, my computer is now unable to read the CD, bringing up the text: “This disc contains a “UDF” file system and requires an operating system that supports the ISO-13346 “UDF” file system specification.” I know this disk is ok, I am using Prassi aBCD for packet writing. I heard there is a way to read that data without destroying disk. I would like to do that and then burn another disk. Please help me if you can. Thanks!



Try downloading the UDF reader on Adaptec’s website. That program reads UDF Discs on CDRW compatible CD-ROM Drives.


I tried the Adaptec UDF file, but that did not work. I am running off of Win 98 already which should natively read UDF formated CDs. Any other suggestions? I do have other CDRW CDs that do work fine. I have tried putting them in first, then ejecting and putting the bad one in with no success. HELP!
