First, Hope I'm in the right place. Now, the problem. I burned a DVD of data files. When I put the DVD into my machine, it acts as if it is a blank DVD, but with only the space the was unused listed as Available. So let say I put 3 gigs of Data on the DVD, it now looks like a new DVD with 1.7 gigs available. And I tried it on many machines and it is the same thing. My fault, I usually check my DVD before trashing the data. Oops on my this time. Anyway, does anyone know of a way to get information off a DVD that does this? BTW, I am running on a iMac with 10.6.8 and plenty of power.
