Multi session recording failed, now I can't access the files that were already on the disc.

Been adding to a multi session data DVD for about 10 years now. It is my music collection, I've been converting my old L.P.s to MP3 and storing them on a series of DVD-Rs.Never had a problem... Until now.
There was an error writing the line out and I had to abort, now I can't access the previous files that I know are on the disc.

Does anyone know how I can get to these files?

  • It sounds like the original project was not available when you continued the multi-session.

    Although it's not intended for your situation, you can try the Nero Rescue Agent. It's included in the Nero suites.

  • I can't see how the original project wasn't available, all the files and folders were on the disc image before I tried to add the new folder.
    Is the rescue agent on Nero? I am unable to find it. Or is it something I have to get as an add on?

  • Which version of Nero are you using? Is it a purchased version or an Essentials version that came with some kind of disk drive?

    This is from the help file for Burning Rom-

    "Continues a multisession disc by burning an additional session to a disc with at least one session. Cross references to the imported session are set in the process.
    When you select this option, the multisession disc must be inserted in a drive. You then have to define which session is being continued. The compilation screen will show the visible files and folders on the multisession disc, but grayed out. Everything you see in the compilation screen will be accessible on the disc later on."

    I suggest that you search on "multisession" in the help file and select "multisession settings" to get a complete picture of using this type of disc. One has to read very carefully and sometimes, between the lines. :(

  • Like I said, I've been adding files to this disc for about ten years. I have done this on three different computers (including the currant one) and three different versions of Nero (again, including the currant one). This has never occurred until now. And all the times I have used it, the files on the disc have never been grayed out. They have always appeared in the disc image exactly as if I had just added them.

    I am using Nero 2014. Bought version.

  • When you open the Welcome Application, the Rescue Agent button should be on the right hand side. As I said, it's not designed for the problem you have, but one never knows. The only other way I can think of to access those files would be to try a utility designed to recover files that are accidently deleted like "Recover My Files".

    It's a very interesting problem. You can ask tech support about it.
