CD-R Multisession Problem
fkheng Dec-06-01 08:03 AM
After trying to burn onto a cd-r multisession cd, the earlier files already on the disc, just disappeared! I thought that this should not be the case as it is a multisession cd, what more, its a cd-r! So how did those earlier files disappear? Help me!!!!!

What software are you using? Just because it is a CDR disk doesn't mean that you cannot erase the information. The differance between cd/r and cd/rw is that the cd/r data storage area cannot be reused. If you write to the disk you can delete it. But, eventhough your pc cannot see the information on the disk you cannot recover the free space either.

fkheng,
I don't know what burning software you are using. But i use Nero5.5 and when I want to use the "Multisession" facility,before the final burning it asks me where I want to continue my session from,in this way it will retain the existing files.

Shanti
