    I burned a CD full of images and reformated my computer, and re-installed a bunch of stuff. Then I popped the disc back in and discovered it had been burned incorrectly and it's not reading ANYTHING. Is there any way I can retrieve those images from my disc?

    When you burnt the files to the CD, how did you do it?

    Did you just "drag and drop"? If so, it indicates that you used InCD or DirectCD or similar software, and CDs burnt with this method require the same software loaded to be able to be read.

    If the above is true, did you reload the software?

    I used a PC and Easy CD Creator 5.

    I dragged and dropped my files into the CD in "Data Layout" mode, but I think it was burned as a music CD for some reason. I don't know this for sure, though, because it's not reading ANY of the files.

    I haven't tried opening it <i>with</i> Easy CD Creator, but that doesn't work anyway, as far as I know.

    I tried the program and it worked...to an extent. It's definately reading that file as some sort of music file.

    When it reads the file it says:
    The Primary Volume Descriptor (PVD) is unreadable.
    Read Error at adress : 16
    Device reported Error : 05/21/00

    It gives me the options of extracting the track:
    Extract User Data (.tao .iso .wav)
    Extract RAW but covert to user data (.tao .iso .wav)
    Treat as Video Only Extract but Filter only M2F2 Mpeg video frames (.mpg)
    Extract RAW data (2352 bytes/block) (.bin .iso)

    I can also Find Missing UDF Files or Folders, which gives me a "Lost and Found" sub folder, but I need to register in order to get it. I don't want to register if that's not going to help me.

    Thanks for the help so far, can anybody take me further?

    If you did not format the CD there is no reason to search for UDF files.

    If you did format the CD you used DirectCD and not EZCD. Make sure DirectCD loaded with the new installation and read the CD in your burner.

    It is odd that the software would have recorded images as music unless you had CD Extra or some music mode that records both music, images and data. Normally in regular music mode it wonÂ’t record image files at all. Are they JPGs?

    Did IsoBuster give a file extension for the files it found?
