    I know there is data on some of my CD-R's made on another computer with Win2000 (I am running WinXP).... It even shows in the properties that there is no free space on the CD... BUT, there in NOTHING in the folder on the CD. Has anyone come accross this?

    I have also tried looking at the CD on a computer with Win 2000, and I get the same problem. What went wrong? I made like 10 CDs all the same way and about half I can read no problem and the other half, I am having this issue.

    Any tips on getting the data off these CD's? I need it and I can no longer access the original data.
    Thanks!
