Using dvd as removable storage and data lost on one disk

Hi, I have a really strange problem. I've been using my blank dvd's for removable storage devices and everything's been working well but I had to reboot because of some screen refresh problem or something and after I came back online all the data in that disk seems to be gone and it says, 0 for disk capacity and 0 for bytes used. I really don't know how that happened but I have some very old pictures and things I put on there that must be retrieved somehow. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

You may try IsoBuster . Download IsoBuster - Best Files & Data recovery tool (For CD/DVD recovery you need not pay and register. Recover, Retrieve & Restore Data & Files - IsoBuster License Models )

Please do go through the Help manual and other documentation on how to use it to extract data from CDs and DVDs.
