How did you make that CDRW?
What software title?
While it matters you can try ISOBUSTER to break into that media.
Drop and drag.....
The pictures came from my camera and they went directly to the My Pictures file of XP. Then I put a blank cdrw in and sent them there. Does that help?
What is ISO buster? Thanks for your reply..
The problem with drag and drop is
It's rarely compatible across machines. As to ISOBUSTER you can find that on google.
does that mean that I can't see these pictures anymore since i don't have that computer anymore? i hope not. it's like 2 years worth of family photos.
Doesn't mean that at all.
It only means we have to do some DATA RECOVERY.
I noted ISOBUSTER which others have found useful in similar instances. I'll also note other names such as GETDATABACK, ZERO ASSUMPTION RECOVERY and another like http://www.jufsoft.com/badcopy/digitalphoto.asp
Or You Can Install The Same Program On Your New Compter...
...If you install the same program on your new computer with which you created the disc on your old computer, then you should be able to view the pictures just like before.
Hope this helps.
Some of the pictures came from my old Olympus Camera and some are from my new Canon. Are you talking about the software that came from the cameras? Or the My pictures folder from the XP? Sorry, I am getting confused.
Is the pictures folder on XP different from Vista?
Sorry, Thanks for your help.
Nope, The Same Burning Program
The XP computer had a packet writing program, (maybe Roxio or Nero, or something else) which formatted the CD-RW disc and allowed you to "drag & drop/copy & paste" the files to the disc. Install the same burning program which formatted the disc and the the new computer should then allow you to read those files.
Hope this helps.
Did you use the built in CD writing
from Windows XP? I have not tried it in Vista but try on another Windows XP machine to see if you can read the disk. I believe the built in writer from XP uses the Roxio (or similar)form of writing.
It would be a shame if Microsoft did not provide a compatible software in Vista for people that did what you have done and then not to be able get the data on Vista.
I can write MS didn't cover this area.
I did try the native drag to disk in XP (read http://www.aumha.org/win5/a/xpcd.php ) and then put it into a new Vista laptop. Nothing showed on the media. This area only proves one thing to me and that drag and drop is far too unreliable.
Just for clarity. I only tried it a few times with off the shelf machines, no tweaks and not going to keep testing.
