CD didn't finalize

Post by seeabove » Tue Jul 29, 2008 4:41 pm

Anyone know of a way to get the data off a CD-R that never finalized? Long story (involving fire!), but I was recording with a CD burner when the power got shut off. I can see the tracks on the disk, anyone know how to extract the data?

Thanks in advance...

Yeah, it doesn't even see the disk in the drive. Thanks though!

Live 2-track recording with a HHB Burner. Drum monitor caught on fire, power was shut down until it was extenguished, and so the recording was stopped midway. I think it's a lost cause.

Will it not play back in the same HHB player?

It shows up as a blank CD in both the burner and my computer.

I'll try that roller tonight.
