Express 5.15 cannot read any CD-Rs created in past 3 years

I have a Windows 98se system that could previously read my CD-R backups made with Retrospect Express 5.15. I have tried on two different systems to read these discs and save my data to no avail. Retrospect gives an 'Unknown Status' to the CD-Rs in the device manager in my Plextor drive. Windows gives them "File system error(40)".

 

Media is Taiyo-Yuden and Verbatim. I have other non-Retrospect backups (ISO9660 format) from the same time period on the SAME media that are fine.

 

I hope someone can tell me how to read this data...

 

Thanks,

Update:

 

I downloaded the trial for Retrospect 6.5 on another machine and am now able to see all of my backups.

 

The only thing that changed on my old Win98SE system was an update to the Plextor 1210A firmware. I guess that messed up Retrospect.

 

Anyway, if anyone has this same problem, hopefully this could help.
