I have used such a recorder, and the one I used WAS capable of recovering a 
disk from a mess like what you describe.  But...it takes a while.  It has 
to read the entire disk (and it is designed to read at 1X), figure out what 
is on it, and then finalize it.

If you can get access to the original recorder, I would suggest you let it 
try to clean up its own mess.  Even better would be to get hold of the 
manual (paper or online) and see what it suggests for finalizing a disk 
that has been removed from the recorder.
