Question about Computers & Internet
I was trying to burn a bunch of photos onto DVD for storage reasons. I had the blank DVD file-view screen up (like when you click on it through My Computer), and just copied and pasted the files there. It took a hours to complete, and I thought it was writing them to the DVD as it went, and when it had done that I couldn't find a ''Burn To Disc'' button anywhere, so I pressed eject, and it spent a couple of minutes ''finalising'' I think, then ejected it. I put it back in to make sure the files were there - and they were - so I put it aside. I tried to access the files a few days later but the DVD sort of appears to be empty! It says ''Space Used: 60%'' but when I try to view the files it just says ''Drag files to this folder to add them to the disc''.
These photos are really important to me and I realise I should've Copied rather than Cut..but it's too late now! And sorry for my limited knowledge about computers but that's the best I could explain it... My friend thought they might be ''cached'' on the disc or something. I have Windows Vista Home Basic, if that helps. Basically what I want to know is do these files still exist and how can I access them? Thanks.
Yes, you are right, the picare are stored on the DVD. however, the pic need to be in a windows XP or Vista comparable format (jpag is the most common).
Close the popup asking you "to drag the file to the disc". This is because the dvd is not completely full or you did not finalized the dvd.
go to "my computer" click on the drive where the dvd is loaded. click on open or explorer. you should be able to see what is on the dvd.
