Was any of this done with Roxio software? If so what version are we using? A bought installed Retail Version, or one that came pre-installed on the new PC?

 

I have downloaded my photos from old pc to new one on cd.

 

You burned photos from the old PC to a CD disc?

 

All have installed but no matter where I look I am unable to open them.

 

You copied them to the new PC but you can't find them?

Try doing a "Search" on the type of photos you copied to your new computer. If they were JPG type search for "JPG" if whatever type they were just search on that extension (i.e. *.xxx or if jpg's "*.jpg" without the quotes of course) That will bring up all of that type photos on your entire computer and then you can see what path to follow to see them.

 

BTW, if those photos were dopied from a CD to your computer, once you find them you can't edit them unless you change the attributes on each one or a batch attribute change, as all of them are "READ ONLY" from the CD.

What were the exact steps in "downloading" the photos? Did you use a network? Did you burn to a plain, ordinary CD-R? Did you use a "drag and drop" program? Did you use WinXP's built-inl burning? Did you use a "Backup" program - if so, which one, and did you use compression?

 

We weren't there. You have to be the eyes and ears so we have a better idea of what is going on.

While that was true in earlier WinOSes, I don't think it's been true since Windows XP was released, and so it won't be true in Vista; certainly not for a Windows Explorer Copy step from CD anyway.

I thought that since the OP was a newbie, quiet handling by one person to elicit the information [post#2] would have worked better than a cluster. But perhaps I think differently.

 

The cluster certainly seems to have scared off the poster, sadly.

The poster never saw any posts, after CD's post. Perhaps you want to take this to PM's.
