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.
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
many thanks for your efforts gongoozler, the particular pic i sent you was one of the 'samples' that came with ME but i also cant read ones taken with my olympus cam, as i say this only applies to that stored on this cd, might nero have converted them to something else although they still say jpeg?
