can't read from the original cd/dvd writer ?
This is probably the best bet to read the disc. Worse comes to worse, can always seek a recovery specialist.

i had a problem when i was using a particular software to burn cd-rs a while back.

it worked fine with the computer and software that burnt it.. i think windows ME (millenium edition)? and nero. i might have remembered wrongly.

when i tried to read it up my new laptop (windows vista).. it would also read as a blank cd.

No.1. Try reading it on other cd drives/other coms.
No.2. Clean the cd with cleaning solution/wax.

The key is 'redundancy', regardless which technology. Two different storage media in two different locations.
