    DVD-R's with zero free space & used space


    I have approx. a dozen DVD-R's that were included with a large stack of new DVD-Rs that appear to have been written to.

    From the DVD drive properties show "zero space", "zero used" and "zero capacity"

    From File Explore I'm not able to find anything on each of the DVD-R's.

    Before tossing them I'm trying to figure if there's a way to access the written data on these unknown dvd-r drives?

    Their labeled MAGNAVOX DVD-R 4.7GB DATA - 120 MINUTES - VIDEO 1 - 16X SPEED.

    :)

    The Space Race

    Not as interesting as @CAPSLOCKSTUCK posted stuff but space related anyway:


    On 15 January ESA astronaut Tim Peake and NASA astronaut Tim Kopra stepped outside of the International Space Station to replace a failed power regulator and install cabling.
