    I have a cd on which I saved many photos. I cannot open all the many photos that I know I saved. I have tried Picasa, the XP photo editor, a photo kiosk and MGI Photosuite, with the "all files" option. Is there any program that I can download that will allow me to open these photos? I am worried that this is hopeless! I imagine that I will be asked what program I used to save the photos and I can't say for certain. I do know that I used MGI Photosuite III to edit them. :(

    Thanks so much! You are quite right and IsoBuster DID show the files I thought were lost. However, I see that to "extract" them, I have to pay for IsoBuster. If that is the only way, then I guess I must. Do you know of any other way or any freeware that will do the same?
    Thanks!

    You might give this freeware (for home use) a try: http://www.softwarepatch.com/software/cd-recovery.html

    For many years Isobuster was completely free. Then for a few years they still had the simple version free for CDs recorded with mastering software but you had to pay for the improved version that worked on packet writing. It appears they have dropped the free part.

    This is an old link. You might try it to see if it still has the free functionality: http://www.isobusterdownload.net/isobuster_all_lang.zip I doubt it but if CD Check doesn’t work you could try.

    If you used packet writing it was never free. Packet writing to RW is not a good idea if you value your data.
