I am trying to access a cd which I have burnt in the past. I am currently unable to access the files on the disk. In the Windows Explorer I am able to see file names and sizes.

I have tried "CDcheck" from http://www.kvipu.com/CDCheck/download.php to recover the disc but it doesn't seem to get one clean read of a sector.

Sounds like your CD is going to be unreadable.
