    Don't know but don't use the CD at all till you hear from others here.

    I have Norton unerase that works on zips so I guess it would also work in a CD-RW.

    If you don't have it see if someone you know has it. It can be rin from the CD so you don't have to install the Norton software.
    But it works best if you use norton to take a " Image" of the CD after you burn. I do that with zips and you can get the data right back if you have not use it to add new data. Without the "image" you can still recovery data but you have to go tru maybe 1000's of files and piece it together. They are all name file 1, file 2 etc. So having the "image" done on it first you can just look for it and find the file name and click recover or right click and pick recovery to and have it recover to you hard drive.

    Rollin Again i alredy tried Badcopy Pro 3.72 but it shows no data in the CD. That means no recovery. CD roller doesnt support rewritable CD.

    Hewee the software of ontrack is Easy Recover Professional and that doesn't allowed recover data from a Cd or dvd. That recover data only from formatted or deleted data from harddisk and removal media.

    Did you know that you erased what you want back now or did you find out later that you erased something that you did not mean to.
    If you used the CD to write to again it would write over where your data was so your never recover it.

    Do a search like I did and keep looking. If you need it real bad you can call some of the places that will do the recovering and ask them. But it will cost you.

    Well there are a ton of textures on the web as I have 1000's and 1000;s of them.
    So maybe you well just have to go look again for them.

    Wow big textures.
    Ok but not tonight because I am off to bed now.

    Tell me what type of textures.
    Seamless
    Wood
    ground
    stone
    water
    metal
    or just art work type.

    Lots of places to go to so if I know more of what type it will save me some time.

    Plus they will be free. :)

    Good night
