    I've lost one sides worth of a double sided DVD RAM disk after removing the caddy inspite of being careful. Is there any good software to hopefully recover contents or part of even ?

    Is the good side readable in a PC? If so you may be able to use recovery software like 'Ontrack Easy Recovery Pro', which works well with Hard disks, floppies etc.

    I'm having a similar problem and really hope someone can help us out :)

    Basically, I thought I'd copied all the data I needed from a DVD-RAM to my PC so I put the disc back into the E50 and formatted it. As soon as it was finished, I realised there was still one program I needed on the DVD-RAM so I rushed to my PC with the disc and ran a program called CDRoller which has worked for me with other data recovery many times in the past. It found no file :(

    Can anyone recommend a good PC software recovery tool that can recover VRO files from formatted DVD-RAM discs?

    Many many thanks in advance :)

    I've just tried a prog called isobuster which has retrived my 2.1GB worth of video. Unfortunatly I can't copy the file to the HDD unless I register the program :-( If you look on google it's surprising how many DVD recovery progs there are but this program is much faster at scaning the sectors of the DVD-RAM disk than others

    Thanks for your help :)

    It looks like the data's unrecoverable after a format, though - just tried Isobuster and all it found were a couple of *.ifo files and a *.bup... no *.vro :(

    I've actually give up and re-formated the disk on the E50 and it works fine again. Fortunatly the series I originally recorded is being repeated again in a few weeks

    I wonder if the Ulead s/w I was using caused the problem

    Oh well. THere's another prog called DVD X Rescue but they all do the same thing. IT seems DVD-RAM disks sometimes go the way of a CD-RW disk for whatever reason

    True. I've been taping a series from Paramount so it will be repeated again at some point in the future... around May-June time by my reckoning :mad:

    Still, DVD recording sure beats VHS :D
