DVD says it's blank?!?!?!

by asiseeit1021 / July 5, 2010 10:45 PM PDT

First, I would like to thank you all in advanced for taking the time to read & help me with this problem

Recently I burned a DVD with May & June pictures. Well the last couple days I have been uploading my stuff to Shutterfly to place an order. Well I put in the May/June DVD and it says the disk is blank but it says 3.47 free of 4.37. The files seemed to have taking up the space but are not coming up. ]=

Is there anyway to retrieve this files?

Can you put it back in the burner and do that? Some players can't read such disks.

Is this a DVD-RW? From what location and with what software are you burning? Need some more info, system, software, etc.
