UDF Reader

I am running Windows XP SP2 on my new computer. I have lots of pictures stored on CD-RW disks. When I insert the disk I get either "Need UDF Reader" to read disk, or it shows nothing on the disks.
I think most of the disks were created under Windows ME with Easy CD Creater or something similar.
Is there any way I will ever be able to get to my old pictures?

save your data on a CD-R or DVD-R. I'd stay away from using formatted CDs or DVDs. They tend to be problematic and unreliable.
