Default File recovery troubles

Times like these are when I think I'm really suffering brain damage.

So, I was burning/backing up some files onto a dvd. I never had any problems with this before so I deleted the files off my hardrive once it was finished burning. I checked the dvd but it was all slow and screwed up for some reason. I ran a spyware scan and restarted BUT I INSTINCTIVELY EMPTIED THE RECYCLE BIN WHEN IT STARTED UP. I couldn't get the dvd to work either . I tried some deleted file recovery programs but couldn't get them to find my deleted files on any of them. Am I missing something or did they get overwritten and it's too late to save them???

Anyways, I could download most of the files back but looks like I lost that Conan O' Brien episode forever....

How long ago did this happen? The longer you wait, the big the chance the files will be overwritten. I use ERD commander myself and it works great.
