CD Burning problem

  1. Dear all, hope that someone can help me out here.

    I've burnt some Word document and some JPG files onto a CDR. When I use explorer to view the files, I can see all the file with all the correct icons. However, when I double click the files, e.g. Word doc, Word application opens up but it couldn't open the actual file. It says the it is an Unknown file format. Same applies to the JPG files. The weird thing is I can open JPG files in one of the folder I burnt.

    Please help. Appreciate it very much. Thanks

    Have you by any chance burned links to files instead of the files themselves?

    Check the file sizes on your CD against the real files on your computer.
