|What kind of soup did you use, LOL? |
Are you sure you even saved the files? What happened to the originals? What burning program did you use? CDR or CDRW?
If this is the first time you saved 10 years worth of personal files then you were lucky in the past and maybe your luck has run out. I can never understand why folks don't treat irreplaceable files with more care.
If the files were on a hard drive in your system then you may be able to recover them even if you used CUT and PASTE, which I personally don't recommend using for important files.
Supply more details. Which side of the disk got scratched?
