Windows 7 Explorer cannot see files on disk

I burned a disk with roxioburn, maybe a year ago.  I have windows 7 on my 2010 dell.  You can look at the disk and see that it burned.  When I insert the disk and click on Roxio, it shows the disk is almost full.  When I click the Roxio menu item Explore, it shows the disk is empty and ready to burn.  I can copy the disk and you can see 6 files in the Roxio temp folder.  I wrote 6 folders of pictures to the disk.  But even when you copy the disk to another disk, windows explorer shows nothing.  I would really like to retrieve these pix and put them on an external hard drive.  Any help would be appreciated.  thanks.

Hi cookiefairie,

Have you tried a different computer?

Yes, at a local computer repair store and Best Buy.  Windows Explorer showed nothing on their machines as well.

Sorry to hear about that. I'm not quite sure what the problem is. Do you have these pictures saved anywhere else?

You might Google "CD recovery" utilities. They can sometimes read files on a disc even when the file table is corrupted.

Thanks, I'll try that.  I don't have any other copies of these pictures.  And thanks for taking the time to look at my problem.

I know that this kind of obvious but it is Roxio, did you finalize the burn?
