Closing A Session?


alyjuma

Question

Hi, I think i had copied some data from my old pc correctly onto a cd-rom, however, when i place the cd-rom into the burner, it pops up as blank, with the following description from the disk and device utilities:

cd-r, Single Session (with Mode 2-XA data), 2 session(s), 1 Track(s), Appendable, Free space: 110.1 MB (12:31:53 MSF / 56378 Blocks) Used Space: 592.7 MB (67:26:19 MSF / 303469 Blocks)

 

So, what do i do to close this session or do something to read my data. it has my dissertation data on it and i'm in a big janb.

thanks

aly

Hi, I tried your steps, however, there isn't a highlighted option to click on 'finalize session'.

Is there a way to force that button to work?

Thanks

Hi, I tried, however, the only option i get under the disk properties is to 'read track'. and i tried that and it seemed to re-write the data to a folder on the hdd. and the option, default, is to set it as a 2-xa mode again...

thanks

Click START

PROGRAMS

Roxio EMC8

Tools and select Disc and Device Utility

It should recognize your drive(s)

Insert the disc

If it says the session is still open, click on that line to highlight it and press the FINALIZE SESSION button.

Ally,

 

in the disc and device utility is an option to read the individual tracks to the hard drive. use this funciton. If you get an .iso file as a result, extract the files with an iso utility like iso buster, cdmage, cdroller,etc. whatever files can be recovered will be. iso buster is free if you don't need UDF functionality (if you didn't use packet writiing and it sounds like you didn't) cdmage is free but i believe it cannot read from the disc so using the disc and device option to read the track is necessary if you're going to use that one. do a google for free iso utilities, just about anything will work so go with free all the way...
