Because I’m an idiot, I burned a dvd (with Nero 220.127.116.11 - my favourite still) with important data, that is now inaccessible.
The reason: Earlier, I wanted to use the dvd and pressed ‘record’, then realised I made an error in the compilation and quickly cancelled the operation before (I hoped) the burning had started. Apparently however, some data was written to the dvd, but Nero didn’t care about that or didn’t see it and when I restarted the burn, it happily burned the disc. That is now unreadable by Windows. Note: it IS readable in Nero CDSpeed or KProbe. I just never get to see the true contents.
All programs see the disc as having only one session, and sector-viewers see the (correct) contents, but because of the faulty start to the burning process, it’s not usable at all.
Alcohol120 and others have no problems making an image (probably due to the same reason it’s scannable in KProbe/CDSpeed) but when I try to mount it, the image is ‘not valid’.
I know that for HDDs with corrupt FATs there are utils that read the entire drive and so reconstruct the FAT or are able to copy the files that are contained on it.
But this is a DVD, and my question to you is, is there ANY way to recover the files in this compilation? Please assist
NB (When I tried to duplicate this result, I cancelled another disc very quickly, and to my surprise, Sonic RecordNow doesn’t want to burn it again (good!), but Nero has no problems with that and made another unusable dvd.)
