im not a programmer, i know very little MSDOS, i know windows xp well.
i have some dvds that i used to back up some files but unfortunately
all the files with korean names were then changed as the disk was
burned. so now they are all question marks (bad file naming according
to windows) so i cannot transfer the files from the dvd to my c drive
or anywhere else for that matter OR even open them up from the drive
(yes, i've already tried that, to rename the files but i can't even
open up the files to rename them). i want to take the files off of the
dvd and store them on my external hard drive now. can cygwin help with
this...i've read for days now the user guide, the mailing list
archives but truthfully i don't know where to start. i kinda need it
set up like this "step 1: do this, step 2: do this" since i'm not a
i have also exhausted many other options before i even installed or
heard of cygwin. nothing worked.
can someone take me through a step by step process to recover these
renamed files?
