  • Access denied/formatting

    I have been looking everywhere for an answer to my dilemma. i hope someone can help. I formatted a CD on my "old" computer, all my personal business files, and formatted to be read "only from that particular computer." I upgraded to XP. Uh, oh. Now I am denied access to read the files on the CD They can be found nowhere under all the usual exploring tools that I know of. Nothing shows. The only reason I know they are there is because I'm opening with Excel and it denies me access and says see ADMIN.

    Is there a way for me to break into my files? I need these files desperately. I've been dealing with this over a month and finally decided to tackle the 'research" end of this after the holidays.
