    If you have tried it in both of your DVD-Rom drives, then it sounds like bad media or burns.

    Unfortunately if this is the case then im afraid you have lost the data.

    You could always try on a friends DVD-Rom to see if it is the discs or your system that is at fault.

    Don't panic yet. If they're O.K. with the burner, try burn them back to HD first.

    Still, try to use the same burning program to see if you can burn them back. Sometimes you may get lucky.

    Its evident this disc is not going to work on your system, so try a friends and see what happens, at least if it works on his/hers you can recover the data.

    Have you burnt any discs since then, using different media just to ensure your burner is not on its way out?

    Sorry to hear the discs where no good,

    But if a media works for you then there is really no need to change it, as you have found out the hard way im afraid.
