It burned through a cd? Yeah, I think there's something very wrong.

Whoa, like the laser literally burned through the CD? Are you trying to "overclock" the drive or something?

Found the problem, all the files were hidden completly in a folder called Found.001. They wereall .chk files nicely hidden by windows check disk.

Problem solved
