um have to ask...

I can't take for granted that everyone knows this, so don't take it personally. Have you put your photos on the hard drive from your cd\mem stick physically? Did you try and print them directly from cd\mem stick? What format did you save them in? Did you use any third party software like Picasa originally before you put them on cd\mem stick? If you used adobe before, you may have simply saved the archive to your photos. If you didn't actually go into your folder that contained them, you didn't keep them. Many softwares like adobe keep a thumbnail archive for easy access to the photos in a specified folder and don't keep the actual photo, follow? It will access the my pictures folder for a picture keeping record of them but not actually contain them. Any case, let me know.

You were right not to take it for granted and yes i used Picasa and no i have not tried to print them from cd/stick.But any way its one heck of a learning curve , and not to take advice from a work mate.
