I have a Toshiba laptop with the Windows Vista operating system. I have been using DVD+R discs as a means of saving files to keep free space on my computer.
Last night I removed the disc while I played a DVD movie on my computer using Windows DVD player. When I reinserted the disc to continue work, the autoplay window did not pop-up, instead I got a message to drag files to disc, and was asked to name and format the blank DVD.
I went to the start menu and tried to open the file through Computer, Drive D, but it read again as a blank DVD. Then the disc began to format. I stopped the computer from completing the format, and when I take the disc out and look at the bottom, I can see that the disc is nearly full of files. When I check properties, it shows the disc is almost full and it shows an accurate amount of free and used space. But still whenever I try to open or search for files, nothing comes up.
Is there anything that can be done to retrieve these files?
