cant see files on cd made with cdrecord


needed to back up my music files, which were on an ext3 partition. i mounted it in linux, tried using k3b and failed (the mp3s appeared much larger than they were..how come??). anyway, i learnt to use cdrecord and finally managed to make it work, everything got copied (or so i thought) and there were no error messages.
but,
now the cd doesnt show any files at all! its not empty - 'properties' says its full - but the files just dont appear at all. is there a way to recover them?

It depends... Do you remember the command(s) you used to create the cd? Please post it/them.

Did you try to record on k3b as an audio CD? That would make them appear larger because they'd be written as raw WAV files suitable for playing on a normal CD player. You wanted a data cd, not an audio CD (if that's the case).

As Mara says, what commands did you issue to create the CD?

yes, i did try to record on k3b as an audio cd.. so thats what it was

dang = i cant remember what options i used... i think there was -dao ... and i dont recall what else. i may have used -data (not audio... guess i tried and it didnt work)
or not -- but its -data by default right?
i'm sorry i dont know if thats enough to go on .. can you still help?

Hmm..what happens if you try to play the cd? If it does play, you can rip them.

and remember that you don't mount an audio cd, it's read as raw data

no i cant play it - tried that already.

and i didnt mount the cd specially - the default options for both the cdrom devices are set to supermount, exec, umask=0, user, dev.
does the problem lie with any of these options?

tried to use k3b to make a disc image -- one large file did get copied, but its the same problem - i cant see whats in it

what does this mean - how can i access the whats in the device without
mounting it?

i tried with other cds - original audio cds have the same problem, i cant play them or see whats in them, but cds with mp3s work fine.

what options should the device mount points have? if i dont supermount, then i cant mount : input/output error

please help!
