    Default Your Help much needed please!

    Operating System: FreeBSD 4.8
    Burning Software: NERO, CDRWIN
    Anti-virus Software: AVG
    DAEMON Tools Version: 3.46


    I really hope you can help me please.
    I am in a very awkward position. Today, my sister asked me to replace her WinXP OS, and I did so. Before formatting and reinstalling her OS, I burned her documents onto a CDR with the XP burning utility. Stupidly, I did not check the CD was created okay, and proceeded to format.

    When I inserted the CD, it was showing as blank, and the same occurred on all other PC's I tried.

    I then went onto my FreeBSD machine and did:

    burncd -f /dev/acd1c msinfo

    which returned : 0,14266 which shows something is on the CD.

    I don't know if the CD wasn't closed properly, and this is why the problems are occuring.

    I then downloaded CDRWIN on my laptop, and extracted it. It created two files.

    dan.bin (size: 6.43MB (which was about right))
    dan.cue (size: 16K)

    I went into Nero 6 and did "BURN IMAGE", and selected the .cue
    Again, when I load that CD, nothing shows, it just shows as blank.

    Can you suggest any way of getting these documents back? They are really important to my sister, and I have most definitely learnt my lesson to check before proceeding.

    When I view the .bin file there are thousands of lines of code of and some "English", so it definitely wrote something to the CD! I am getting more hopeful!!!

    Can I use DAEMON tools for anything?

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

    Thank you in advance.
