    You cannot delete the contents of or format an original CD or DVD.

    You must be referring to a CD-RW or DVD-RW.

    If its a rewriteable cd or dvd you can delete whats on there i think. however anytime something is deleted whether from a computer or cd i dont think theres anyway of retrieving it short of a miracle.in other words once its gone its pretty much gone.

    It depends on how you formatted it. if you did a quick delete rather than a full one, ISObuster and the likes may well be able to recover the data.

    I know that it is easy to recover format files from computer hard disk. And me too want to know if there are any software or solution which can recover delete files from CD or DVD. Thank you!
