Open Session error - unable to access authored DVD :(

Postby studvd on Mon Jul 16, 2007 9:36 am


Critical problem. I burned a DVD using an external HP DVD burner, in order to backup crucial documents from my IBM Thinkpad T42 laptop, prior to handing back to my employer. I authored the DVD using the XP burning engine - i.e. i just dragged and dropped.

I ejected the DVD after writing to it and then actually put it back in again to confirm the data was succesfully written to the disk. The data was there...

However, when i put the DVD into any other PC, it shows up as a blank disk. When you look at the underside though, the colors are different, the data MUST be there. When i try to open the DVD with Nero it tells me that the session was not closed properly then crashes the program. I can see, but not access, the folders that should be on the disk.

Can anyone tell me how I can recover the data from this DVD? My whole life from the past 2 years is on here and it's crucial info!

Any advice would be much appreciated :)

Thanks in advance
