XP Pic & fax viewer

  muddypaws 10:09 04 Aug 2003

Sent CDR to someone with copy of 'my pictures' on it. Won't play on his XP. Plays back OK on mine. Is it likely he has not got 'Windows Picture and fax viewer'? Where can he search to check and if not is there a freeby download anywhere. I'm unable to find one. Would have thought XP had it already installed. Mine was. Thank you.

When I say it won't play-- CDR runs but programme doesn't open.

Gaz 25 Beat you to it with my last! OK thanks will double check that with him. Afraid it probably wont be till 2morrow. Cheers

Gaz 25. Read ypur mx again. Not sure where he has to click. Is it on the 'my pictures' icon. Tried on mine and get no 'open with.' Sorry to be thick!

Gaz 25 or others.
Just read in a mag. that if you don't 'close' a CDR on ejection it is incompatible with other CD-Rom drives. I left mine open as I was un-aware.
Tried you earlier suggestion, but no luck.
Anyone advise re 'closing' please.

Not much help appearing on this one!!

anchor. Thanks. Any comment on not closing a CDR. I read in a mag. that leaving a CDR open for further burning makes it incompatible with other players.
