Hi I am a complete novice with computers but I have been trying to view my wedding photos and can't we have been given two discs one is a CD and I can view everything no problems, the other is a DVD+R disc and whenever I put it in the computer says it's blank. I have gone back to the photographer and got a replacement this morning but that is doing the same thing even though when he views it on his pc it's fine. does anyone know why. I'm on Windows XP

? Has the disk been finalized or has it been left open to add other files. If you only have a DVD player it may not be able to read an open disk.

? What program has he used to create this disk.
