Images on a CD not accessible

  [DELETED] 16:37 21 Feb 2006

Whilst in Australia recently visiting our son, he burned the images my wife took on her digital camera to a CD so that she could clear her card and take more pictures. However, now we have got home and try to loo at them I keep getting the message "D:| is not accessible. The handle is invalid." Does anybody know what this means and how we can get to the pictures, (it is a CDR) and we are using XP home as our operating system. Thanks.

Have you got MCAfee antivirus installed.

There is a program called ISObuster that may help if all else fails.

I have not got McAfee installed. Tried to download ISOBuster from your link but couldn't as I am not registered with the site. I have however downloaded it from another site but I still get the same message when I try to access the CD

Hi the first thing I might do is contact your Son to see if the photos are still on his PC.

If yes, Could He Email them to you? Or Drag and Drop (paste) them to Cd? Then post the Cd. Pasting them to Cd may eliminate a software problem.

Something to try though.. Right click the drive in My Computer goto PROPERTIES/ADVANCED Tab make sure 'Enable CD recording on this Drive' is ticked.

If your son used Roxio to burn the Cd. This could help. click here

I have got to say though.. I have no experience with this software and I don't know what downloading this program involves. I did searched for a free trial version, but can't find one ;-(

Bestwishes Kev.

How are the images stored on the CD - jpeg/tiff etc.?
Do you have an image editor? If so, try opening the image editor first, then access the CD.

I think you have an invalid drive letter, maybe your sons Burner was E or F and you are trying to access D. Can you change your drive letter and try again.
