Default Not enough space on CD to "finalise" or delete. ??

I think I have overfilled my Sony CD (for Mavica CD200). When I try to finalise it, I get a message saying "not enough disc space to finalise".
I have tried deleting one or two photos but I get a similar message.

Does anyone know how to get around this without formatting the whole disc?

Thanks,
Susan

If it's anything like my CD1000 it will say that even though it is finalized. Try looking at the pictures in your CD ROM drive. If you can see them then it's been finalized.

Hm...Thanks Lanny, I didn't even bother looking. I'll do that the minute I get home!

Cheers!

Let me know if you would if that was the problem. I have a program that can recover them if need be.

Lanny, I'm afraid my computer could not "read" the CD, however after a thorough reading of the manual (which mentions nothing of such problems), I decided to try out a programme called DirectCD which is supposedly capable of finalising/unfinalising CDs on the computer. (Because I bought my camera second-hand, I didn't have this piece of software which is part of the package when you buy it new).

Anyway, it worked. It looks like a very good programme but unfortunately it's only a 30 day trial version and it's rather expensive to buy. Is your programme available as freeware/shareware?

I might just buy DirectCD in the end, but I'm a bit strapped for cash at the moment. Digital photography (as I'm sure you know) can be a really expensive hobby, keeping up with new gadgets, new software and the like!

Much appreciated,
Susan
