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?

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?

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.

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).

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???

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.

Because of all the "quotes" I find it hard to see if in any of your posts if you mentioned what flavor of Vista you are running. The reason I ask is a friend of mine has Vista home basic and he is having this problem.
I am running Vista home premium and when I saw this post I had to see if I could see my JPG files saved from win98 using Nero and then XP using either drag and drop in XP and Nero. They all work fine.
Maybe we can pinpoint this problem yet! I am sure this has got to be very important for all concerned. I know it would be for me.
You are saying that you can see the pictures if you insert the CD/DVD in a XP machine?

Hi - Did anybody get to the bottom of this? I have EXACTLY the same problem as this thread starter and i am also using a Dell PC - the XPS420 with Vista Home Premium installed.

I have 2 PC's, my old Packard Bell P4 running Windows XP, which i burned loads of our childrens photos to CDR's and RW's and used the drag and drop method through Windows Explorer as described by the thread starter and cannot view the files on my new XPS 420.

I can view all the files from the CD's on my Packard Bell, and also our HP's at work, but not my Dell......

I really want to get to the bottom of this.....as if its a problem that i need to take up with Dell then i would rather get to the bottom of this sooner rather than later.

I have also networked the 2 PC's together and have transferred the files via Ethernet onto the new Dell and can view all the files without any problems at all.

I would be really grateful if somebody could help me through this so i can establish exactly the cause of these problems that some of us are experiencing.

Kind Regards

Soni

I have been doing a bit of experimenting and have found that one brand ( so far ) of media doesn't seem to work when doing multi-session, I will not mention the brand because I do believe that some media works better on some burners then others.

To rescue your JPG files I suggest downloading a program called "Isobuster" it will extract most files from your CD/DVDs for free.
Part of the functionality related to the UDF and HFS(+) file-systems is not free and needs to be paid for. This is the extraction of files that come from the UDF [drag & drop software] or HFS(+) [Macintosh] file-systems. So, all functionality is present, including scanning and finding of lost files, but if you actually want to extract (copy) a file from the UDF or HFS file-system you need a valid registration. <<<
See if it works for you, extract your JPGs to a folder and burn them again. Remember to test different media to see what works best, I use and recommend most Japanese media is good ( if made in Japan) "Verbatim".
License models for IsoBuster and Freeware vs. Shareware policy

Hope this helps you.
