What exactly you mean with 'Windows can't "see" the files'. Does Windows Explorer/My Computer only show empty folders? What do the right-click properties of such a folder say about number of files and space occupied?
What exactly is "say that CD is empty" in relation to "show the folder info". After all, an empty CD has no folders at all.
What do you mean with 'Nero can't "see" the files'. I use Nero to burn the disk, not to view it. What are you doing exactly?
Are .jpg files shown on the hard disk?
Now an interesting experiment. Make a folder on your hard disk that contains three files: a .mp3 file, a .jpg file and another file (say a .doc or a .txt). Set the Folder Options (in Control Panel) to NOT hide extensions of known file types, and you'll see those extensions. Then burn that to CD.
According to your subject line, Windows Explorer will only show 2 files on the CD, and supposedly 3 on the hard disk. But I doubt if that comes out true.
Maybe this CD is a socalled Kodak Photo CD. That uses a special format (although it still shouldn't be empty, I think, but I've never seen one). Could it be that your problem is "PC can't see photo's on Kodak Photo CD"?
Just a wild guess, of course.
Post your experiences. They might help to get the problem clearer.
Hope Someone can Help with this.
I'm running XP sp2 on a Toshiba Satellite M35X Laptop. I have 2 CD/DVD drives on this unit. An internal drive (Matshita DVD-RAM UJ-8205) and a new external CD/DVD RW drive (TSSTCorp SE-s204n).
Here's what's going on. I was given a CD with lots of JPEG photos on it but neither drive can "see" the files, in fact both drive say the CD is empty (although is does read and display the folder info). What's interesting is both drives can read CDs with Music (mp3), both can play DVD movies, but neither can read any CD with JPEG files. (Yes, this CD can be read on my other computer just fine, so CD is not corrupted). Also, it happens with any CD with JPEGS.
More background: When we got this new external drive it came with some software, Nero Essentials, which I installed with the new drive. I have used nero to burn CDs and DVDs. Nero can not "see" the JPEG files either. Is it possible that Nero disabled the capability to read JPegs?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
