Digital pics WIN98/XP

  Scubaman 11:24 25 May 2005

Hi, Some time ago I saved a lot of digital pics to CD when I was running WIN98, I have now upgraded to XP and renewed the CD drive, the problem I have now is that the CD is not recognised. Any help please would be appreciated.

Dumped the CD now, oh well take more pics.

I suppose you could have always used a computer using Win 98 to e-mail the pics from the CD to the computer using XP.
Maybe the file systems FAT 32 and NTFS don't mix when using CDs??

Before you dump the CD why not try the CD in another PC; perhaps a friend will help.

I have no problem viewing all my old pictures, (jpgs), stored on CD`s that were originally made over the years on PC`s that had either Win 98 or WinME. The old systems were FAT32, and my current system WinXP NTFS.
