a little while ago, my pc got infected, courtesy of a front-page virus which attacked and diasbled most .exe progs. wanting to back up my most recent files (inc. my last picture posts), i had to resort to the windows xp cd burning junky thing (highmat). now, with a reformatted hard-drive, i can't access the cd and, when the pc does manage to recognise a cd, it shows it as though it's an open session disc, but it's still not accessible through any application.
i've tried cmd, various diskinternals apps and lots of other freeware apps, but i still can't access the cd. the cd is also not readable on other computers.
thanks in advance.
