Hi I hope someone can help as I am desperate to recover old photos of my grand children which I thought were lost my old PC crashed. However I recently discovered an old CD with these very photos on but it will only play on a PC. I copied all the photos on it to my PC in JPEG format. Unfortunaly Diameter of the pictures are a very small 160x120 size 5.79 as against the standard of 2304.1728 (5.79) When I try to enlarge or manipulate a photo to correct this it goes out of focast. Where have I gone wrong & can I copy these photos from the CD so they are standard size. Your help & guidance would be very much appreciated as these photos are very precious
Thank you Kind regards

If the CD hasn't been "closed" or "finalised", it can only be read by a CD-rewriter drive. A CD-ROM drive cannot read it.

It sounds as though you may only have "thumbnails" of the photos on the CD and not the original full size pics. Can you open the files directly from the CD and, if so, what size are they?
