Default Need s/w to read data written by HP CD-Writer

Many (many!) years ago I wrote data to ~50 CDs using an HP CD-Writer 7200 (can't remember what s/w I used).

I now want to read the data onto a new machine, but its CD drive cannot read them. Windows XP thinks they are empty (0 bytes used) but Cyberlink Power2Go can sense they are full but cannot read the data. The CDs are physically undamaged.

I suspect they may have been written using a proprietary HP format, and I wonder if there is any software out there to help me recover the data using a standard CD/DVD RW drive, as the original HP drive is no longer available.

Any ideas, or is this a hopeless case?
