I put a CD-R disk in the Compaq Laptop CDROM and it opened and I could access the files. I closed the files and folders I was accessing and when I went remove the disk I got a message that the computer was closing the disk so that it could be read on any computer. Now I can't access the disk on any of my computers. Is there a fix?
Thank you Ttech. I appreciate your answer. I know how to and have already recovered all the files. I was just wondering for future reference if there is a way to undo what the computer decided to do to the disk. The disk was supposedly "closed" or finalized during the original recording session and I thought that no additional data could be written to it. Apparently that's not correct as something was written to the disk and corrupted the index or whatever file allows the disk to be read by any disk reader/player. But, thanks for your response.
I found the useful information for damaged CD and DVDs. The most common sign of damage in CDs and DVDs is a scratch and more you use it, the damage increases and in effect makes it unreadable. In such situations, data recovery becomes a necessity. Here are steps to recover data from such damaged drives using Stellar Data Recovery software and also the preventive measures to avoid such damages to the optical drives..
