Weird problem with cd-rw disc

I am not sure if this is in the right section so please forgive me if it's not.
So the problem I am having is with a cd-rw disc that I made for pictures. So after I made the disc I checked it to make sure I had everything on there that needed to be on there. So it has been a couple of months since I did this and for some reason it keeps causing my computer to Stop responding. I haven't been able to acess anything on it. I have tried everything I know to try and figure it out but it still does the same thing. Oh I have tried it on my laptop and desktop and it does the same thing on both so I know that I don't have a bad drive.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The software that is used to create CDRW disks that act like a drive letter. You need to share the title, version of this software and members may see some update for that.

In closing I've used ISOBUSTER to get the files off such.

I had a CD that I had not made 2 copies of (one of the rare occasions), and my computer couldn't read it. I had put some important data on that CD, and I was devastated.

When I read your post, I immediately went and downloaded IsoBuster and gave it a try. I now have my data back, and I will buy the program as soon as I get paid.

Thank you for naming a program that could retrieve my data!
