CD content suddenly reads blank in Windows 7?

Specs: Windows 7

I recently got a new computer and back all my files up from the old computer to disks. I divided my documents into two categories: school and non-school. Both disks have worked perfectly on the new computer letting me access my files. However, the copies of the files I saved on the new computer (from the disks) has disappeared and now the original disk is telling me it's blank. And idea what happened and if anything can be done? I have been working on one of those files for over two years and it kills me to think it's gone.

check the disc with a different PC.
Is this a PC that came with windows 7 or an upgrade?

I have tried the disk on three other systems and all read empty. My husband, who works with computers everyday, thinks it might be a corrupted disk. Do you have any suggestions on programs that can extract the files?

The PC came with Windows 7 installed as the OS.

It is a CDR. Corruption is what scanning programs keep telling us is wrong. CDBurnerXP recognizes that there is content but is unable to access it, and every disc scanning program we have tried tells us that the disk is unreadable that the filesystem was unavailable or missing.
