Hello, My first post to this list. I pray that you'll be able to assist me please. I'm running FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE, and my sister today asked if I could reinstall her OS on her WinXP machine. I used the WinXP CD burning utlity to burn "My documents" folder, and stupidly I didn't check it suceeded, not worked. I then proceeded to reinstall the OS, thus losing all data, and then found that on all PC's I tried, including my WinXP laptop, that the CD appears as blank. When I tried on my FreeBSD machine, a "ls" in the cdrom drive shows nothing, yet: london# burncd -f /dev/acd1c msinfo 0,14266 showing that something has been burned. The actual CD looks as if something has been burned onto it. The data is very important to my sister, so I really need to try and access it. I am not sure if the CD closure procedure didn't work as expected. I tried some CDR recovery applications for Win, but to no avail. london# burncd -f /dev/acd1c fixate fixating CD, please wait.. burncd: ioctl(CDRIOCFIXATE): Input/output error No idea why this happens. A "du" returns: london# mount -t cd9660 /dev/acd1c /cdrom london# cd /cdrom london# du 2 . london# ls london# Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! Regards,
