    no none. It tells me that there are no files on the disk. However
    properties tell otherwise.

    When you removed the CD from you XP machine, did you do a final "burn" and
    make sure your CD was closed?

    Re: i can't view picture files on my picture cds

    Can you see the files on the CD and just not be able to open them? Can you
    drag the files off the disk onto hard Drive space and open them. What files
    are these? JPGs? Do you have an application on your new machine set to read
    them?

    Re: i can't view picture files on my picture cds

    I am not able to see any files, it tells me the disk is empty. They are Jpg
    files and I am trying to open them using the explorer window and selecting
    the E:/ drive. I can't even upload the photos using picture software
    installed on my machine.

    Re: i can't view picture files on my picture cds

    I just went back and checked some older disks I burned on my XP machine to
    see if they look ok on my Vista machine...they look and work fine...so, what
    did you burn these with? What application? Can you see them on another XP
    machine? This is most likely not a Vista problem but a burn and move to a
    (any) new machine problem. Need to rule that out somehow. How old are
    these files (when was the CD made?). Oh and BTW what kind of CD is this,
    CD-R, etc. and have you verified that your drive can read these. (some are
    touchy).

    Re: i can't view picture files on my picture cds

    The disks used were both CD-R and DVD-R. I burned them by copying the files
    from my C:/ drive and pasting them to my E:/ drive. I always make sure to
    close the disk. Some are just recently burned, others possibly up to 1 1/2
    yrs old.
    How do I verify what type of disks my drive will read???

    Re: i can't view picture files on my picture cds

    These are the same CD's I used. I don't see any problem with the rest of
    what you said you did. Some I am now at a loss of what to tell you. I
    would think that if you can burn and read the disk back on your own machine,
    the CD's are good to use. One more thing. Is this a totally new machine,
    one you bought with Vista already installed or is it the same hardware that
    you upgraded? Can you make a disk on your Vista machine and read it on your
    XP machines, if you have that hardware available, that is. Grasping for
    straws here.
