to explain more clearly. my prev pc had win me etc, my new one has xp pro, my problem is i have a cd which i backed up pics from old pc but when placing cd in new pc i get the thumbnails but cant view them any ideas? please. cheers.
regretfully not the solution, image viewer opens and says no preview available, i do have irfan but not tried that, tried renaming to open with explorer and get a box with a red square, so went back to image viewer, tried paint and message not a valid bitmap etc.
Hi Johnny. Are you confident that the images are valid jpegs? The "not valid bitmap" message causes some concern. If you want to e-mail me a picture to see if I can open it, send me an e-mail via the envelope icon and I'll e-mail back with my e-mail address.
re thumbnail.i hope not i really do the pics actually have the names' thanks gongoozler i will when i get home trouble is that for the life of me i cant remember what program was used to view them in ME
(i read this somewhere a long time ago) it's quite possible that the cd requires finalising for xp to open it (most cd burning software offers this) although im also sure that this was only for older drives and since yours is xp then............... forget it!!! i was very nearly on a roll (downhill :)
