A while ago I burned some photos to cd, the burn was successful as I have viewed them several times, the problem is now the D drive tells me there is no disk in the D drive and when I look on properties at the CD in the drive it tells me it`s empty ? This happens on the two computers that we have
Any ideas on how I can get the photos back ?

Hi there,

Does this problem happen for all CDs, or just this one specifically? If it's all of them, then you'd need to replace your CD drive, which is fairly inexpensive and simple. If it is just that one CD, I'd say that the data on the CD is corrupt. The disk could have been scratched, or put into the path of a magnetic field such as a magnet or a microwave oven. If that is the case, then the data cannot be recovered, unfortunately.


Hope this helps.

Thanks for your reply, it is only the one cd that is not recognized, it does not look like it`s scratched and it has not as far as I know been left by microwave, when I look at properties it tells me, used no bytes, unused no bytes ?

Did you use something like INCD to burn the files or did you make a simple data disk?

If you used nero INCD, then the disk is NOT readable on any drive unless you install INCD or the reader.
