Default any way to recover a write damaged cdrw?

sponsored links

Any tricks or software to recover a cdrw (only written once) which gives a non-erasable and blank message... I've got around 15 cdrws that can't be rewritten....

[b]Note: this method will not recover any data[/b]
Note: I only use this method when I put a cd in and the drive just seeks but never does anything.

You should be able to erase the cd, you'll need Easy CD Creator [b]3.5c[/b] and clone cd\diskjuggler

o Open Easy CD Creator
o Open your drive tray and put your cd in the re-writer drive (do not close the drive tray!)
o In Easy CD Creator goto Disk then Information (your drive tray will automatically close and a new screen should come up, don't close it!)
o Open your other cd program and erase the cd.
