old jpeg digital photos

by glowil11 / July 16, 2011 12:39 AM PDT

I burned photos to CD as far back as 2000. I am trying to archive them on my new computer and then to my external hard drive. The files read as jpeg, but when I try to access them, there is no picture there and my windows 7 computer gives an error that it does not recognize the file. I think the software was "MCI"???? One of the disks, I noted that as one of the programs used. I am looking at buying photoshop 9. Do you think it will pull them up? I am heartbroken to have lost the pictures. Please help... Thanks,Gloria

1. Copying the files to the hard drive?
2. Using IRFANVIEW?

I am not a computer geek.... I just thought I might could get some help to retrieve my pictures. I did not intend to be a pain...

And you find a new word. Google is like the librarian, card catalog or dictionary.
