I have some CDs recorded with Adaptec Easy CD Creator 4 / DirectCD 3 from the time my PC ran on Windows ME which now are seen as blank CDs but with 0 free space. Probably these CDs were recorded with DirectCD 3 and were not finalized because I used to use them as backup media and only finalized them when they where almost full.
Do you know any method I can use to regain acess to the files that are not recognised by the same LG CD-R/RW reader/writer I bought back then and used to burn them with the Adaptec software I try to install now but Windows XP rejects? I have tried to install a UDF Reader and also access the CDs via MSDOS with the Startup Disk from Windows ME with no success in both cases.
I wonder what if I tried to find and install an old version of the first Easy CD Creator compatible with Windows XP (ECDC 5? ECDC 6?) and finalize the CDs with its built-in DirectCD version also compatible with Windows XP?
