I burned files onto a CDRW using HP CD writer Veritas with WIN 98 with my old laptop.

I then used the CDRW with my new computer in WIN XP.
It read the files on the CDRW with no problems. Then I burned another file onto the CDRW using MusicMatch Jukebox Burner plus.

When I tried to read the CD, all I could see is the one file I burned last and not all the others.

Burner Plus still reads that there are six sessions on there, but i can only see files from the last one. I can't access any of the other files from any programs including windows explorer.

HELP!

While not familier with those paticular packages. I've had a similar situation happen to me.

The second burning software seems to add and use it's own reading application to the CD. So it cannot read the precious session that you burned files onto.

Try using the previous software to read the previous files you wrote to the cd.

If not possibly use another third party software package.

If you are using multi-session with Record Now or MusicMatch it is not possible you accidentally erased the other sessions without erasing the entire RW and starting over. That kind of stuff occurs with packet writing – the big floppy thing.

Try to recover the files using the free version of IsoBuster: http://www.smart-projects.net/isobuster.htm
