Here is my situation: I burn a DVD using the Live File System (which allows it to act like a flash drive). Burns without problem. Then I close the session, and all the files are still on the DVD. Then I eject the DVD and reinsert it, and it appears blank. If I now restart the computer, or hibernate - then the files reappear (not logoff - looks like it needs power off).

Any help so I can read my files after burning, or write more files without switching off the computer would be much appreciated.

What operating system and what program are you using? Maybe you need to umount the dvd before ejecting? – ott-- Jan 14 '13 at 8:48
@ott-- Windows 7. Using Explorer. Before ejecting I right click the drive and click Close Session. – wezten Jan 14 '13 at 10:57
It works for me, just wrote some data to a DVD-RW. Ejecting takes some time, it said "prepare to eject" (in german). After inserting it again, the title and files appeared again. Did you eject with the button or from right-click menu? – ott-- Jan 14 '13 at 12:13
@ott-- with the menu – wezten Jan 14 '13 at 18:05
