Windows Explorer is missing files burned on a multisession DVD. Please Help!


Aharon Haravon


I've just installed a DVD burner (LG's HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4040B) on an
Windows XP Professional box.
The hardware came with DVD burning software from BHAcorp called B's
After burning the first DVD media I've already ran into the following
problem: when browsed using Windows Explorer, the DVD appears to have less
files than should (files appear to be missing on the DVD).

The following are some details of the operation I've performed, and some
basic research results:
The DVD was burned in On-the-fly mode at the speed 2x and requested not to
close the disc (to allow additional multiple sessions). Burning took about
half an hour for 3Gb of data, and when I access the property window for the
DVD media using Windows Explorer, it says that 3Gb of data has been burned
on it. The files that appear in Windows Explorer on the DVD media are those
with names from the beginning of the Latin alphabet, and their total size
seems to be a full CD (something about 700Mb) size.

I've searched the groups and didn't succeed in finding any similar
The question is posted to the recording software company too, and if I get
any useful info from them I'll post it back here.
As the DVD burner product manufacturer (LG) web site is down (???!) I was
unable to contact them too.

Am I missing something here, or is this some bug that needs it's patch, or

Thank you in advance for your help.
