I have a CD-R which has worked fine for a good while. All of a sudden, Windows can no longer read its data. It's not scratched, it's clean and Windows can detect the disk and usage of space on it.
But whenever I attempt to access the data stored:
- Explorer crashes
- Or after 5-10 mins of trying to read it, it opens up and just shows a
desktop.inifile in Explorer.
This happens on multiple machines. Any ideas? Is there a way to recover the data?
For example - some sector by sector recovery software if any exist for CD's?
