    I have a direct read CD on which I have entered and deleted files. Using it as a back up for personal files. Up until now I have accessed the CD and can read and or process files. The CD had shown 50% used with 50% available. When I accessed the CD today none of the files appeared. In properties it showed completely full. This CD is used in a program where I can use the CD in the same manner as another drive or a floppy disk. I want to know how I can acces the files that were on that CD

    Are you attempting to read the files on the same machine and in the same drive they were written? Are you able to read and write other CD-RWs?

    Yes, I used the same CD in the same drive in the same computer as it was originally written to and it was working normally, i.e. I could read the files, and then the next time I accessed the CD no files appeared. I then thought it might be a problem with the CD drive but I checked other CDs created in the same way in the same drive and I could read the files. SJK
