John Copp Posted June 14, 2009 Report Share Posted June 14, 2009 ISSUE: the contents of RW DVD disks are getting erased when the disk is read SYSTEM: Windows XP CULPRIT: Easy CD Creator DESCRIPTION: 1. Using Easy CD Creator and a Memorex 16x burner, copy files from C: to a RW DVD 2. check that the files are there (they are), then remove DVD disk 3. placed disk into Memorex --> copied files are visible 4. remove disk, put it back into any DVD drive --> all files have been erased. In their place are three files: Authorun.inf, udfrchk.exe, udfrinst.zl. These files are components of Roxio Easy CD Creator. MY REQUEST (two parts): (1) can anyone please explain how this happened? (2) can anybody tell me how to protect myself from such disasters going forward? There were extremely valuable data on both DVDs that were destroyed by Roxio software. Luckily, I have them copied to other media as well. Still, this was a rather surprising outcome. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
