Make Compatible


anon-

Question

I have disks which I burned using sonic DLA that are now not readable (sonic is installed on computer.)

 

Sometimes the option to 'make compatible' is visible when I right click the drive letter and sometimes that option is NOT (not even grayed out.)

 

How do I make a disk (which has been burned using DLA) compatible when the option is not available so I can read what I burned onto the disk?

 

This is Sonic DLA version 1.0.48.0

Packet-Writing (Sonic's DLA, Roxio's Drag2Disc, Nero's InCD, etc) can be useful for temporary things like moving files from one computer to another when the original is safely on the originating computer.

 

It can fail for any reason, or none at all. It is NOT a long-term backup - I learned the hard way.

 

You could download the "trial Version" of cdroller (www.cdroller.com) or ISOBuster (www.isobuster.com) and see if they can find anything on the disc (altho you have to pay to actually recover it).

 

Next time, I'd suggest using either a Sessions-based program (like Sonic's DataDisc or WinXP's built-in burning ability), or a Flash drive.

 

Let us know if you are able to recover anything.

This sounds like my situation as well. What a disappointment. I can only hope that one of those recovery programs will help me retrieve the irreplaceable data from my faulty DLA discs.

Update: I recommend Jufsoft's BadCopy Pro. It recovered the missing files on my data CD. They offer a free trial which will allow you to see if your files are recoverable. If they are, you can spend the $39.95 for the registration key and then the product will allow you to save the files to your computer.

 

lynn mentioned cdroller, but that did not work for me. After a few days of e-mails with the cdroller tech, I looked for other options and found BadCopy Pro, which worked excellently on the first scan. Well worth the $40.

 

I have uninstalled all Roxio/Sonic programs from my computer and will never do business with this company ever again.

If you hadn't formatted the disc, and instead used one of the reliable programs to make Sessions-based discs, there wouldn't've been a problem.

 

Formatting with Nero's InCD or any other Packet-Writing program will set you up for the same results as Sonic's DLA or Roxio's DirectCD or Drag2Disc.
