    I had a "moment" and erased a dvd-rw with EZ-CD Creators quick erase function and lost 1600mb of tunes!
    Since it wasn't the "full" disc erase, I was wondering if there is still a way to recover some data. I can live with the loss, but will have a hard if not impossible time replaceing everything......I know, back-up, back-up, back-up. I just got ahead of myself and.... DOH!!!

    Recovery might be achieved w/one of the data/file recovery freeware tools denoted in this thread:

    (It's the original thread in which I pasted descriptions and links to the freeware possibilities on the Son of Spy site. I don't recall the specifics of the original poster's data loss situation, but you might take a loook.)

    I went through a bunch of old CD-RWs that I had thrown in a box and managed to piece together the entire DVD I jacked. I guess I had been backing things up more frequently than I thought.

    Lesson learned.
