How are you burning them? If you use Creator, then you need to finalise the disc before it can be read

 

 

I get the message that the disk is being finalized so it can be read on other devices, then it ejects. I can open them on the computer that burned them, but other computers say the disk is empty. I can burn music CD's fine, and they play with no problem.

From My Pictures, I click the pictures I want to copy, I select copy this folder to the CD/CDR Drive F, and click copy. It shows the pictures by number being sent to the CD, then finalizes the disk and ejects. The back of the disk has the burned area visable, but nothing is there on a different computer.

It actually sounds like the OP is using the built in CD writing from XP

 

 

I just did the procedure again. I click the file in My Pictures. Then I click Copy To F Drive, that says Roxio3. It shows the individual pictures going to the F drive, and the Roxio Drag to Disk shows in the bottom right of my screen. The Roxio Drag to Disk shows the files are being sent to the disk. When it complete, I push eject and it says Roxio is finishing the disk. After a short while it ejects and says the disk is now readable in any disk drive, or something close to that. If you look at the disk, it shows an area that has been burned. It will open in the computer I burned it on, you can look at all the pictures. But that disk in another computer, and it shows that it is empty. I have tried disks on three other computers, and they all show the disk empty.

 

I have Windows XP, Roxio Easy Media Creator Suite 9.

Sounds like the disc just isn't getting finalized correctly when you're ejecting it using D2D.

Try this,open Creator Classic from the Start menu under Roxio EMC9.Make the project type a data disc.Using the top pane select your pics in the explorer window.Just drag them to the bottom pane.When you have them all hit Burn.When the burn box pops up hit the + next to burn options.Make sure that Read-Only Disc is checked.Let it burn.Now see if the disc works.

If it does then this is how you should make the discs.

D2D is a packet writing solution and is not really reliable for long term storage of data.Also you've found out about compatibility problems.
