      at 130.00 for a TERABYTE of storage on a USB external drive, not even on sale, I don't agree.

      1,000,000,000,000 bytes ... lots of pictures... Lots and Lots of pictures. Even the SD cards have gotten so dirt cheap you don't have to dump them, just get a new one and snap away. Most laptops have a SD card reader in them.

      Nesabo may be on it, the disc may have never been "Closed" on the computer the CD was burned on, but if it spins up , stalls, spins up, stalls, and stops trying, it's possible the disc is having problems. 100% successful burn rates are more common than they used to be. We used to make coasters out of the cd's all the time.

      CD cleaners are like halogen headlight fluid. If it's scratched so bad it won't read, it's usually all the way through the reflective material and won't read when polished either.

          If it was posted, I did not see it. What kind of camera did you use to take the pics? Is it digital? If so, then you should have the pics still on the memory stick/card/disc in the camera. You can just load them on your hard drive and then load them on Photobucket or which ever site you wish.

          Deleted the pics from your camera?


          Heh heh... this is a NIFTY little tool:

          If you can connect your camera via a USB cable to your computer, it acts as an additional drive. This program can access this drive and retrieve ANY deleted file. It works. I have used it SEVERAL times to retrieve errantly deleted videos and pics from my Sony camera.

            I think he had some old photographs that he took to a store and had scanned, and the image files put on a CD. He brought the CD home, put it in his computer, and it didn't automatically display the images.

            First thing to do is to look for the CD in windows explorer, to see if the computer can read it at all. If it can, then see what kind of files are on it, and see if you have an application that will open them.

            If the computer can't read the CD, maybe take the computer and the CD and the old photos back to the store and demand money back or that they make a new one that works, or otherwise get some use out of the money spent.

              That makes sense and makes me think Nesabo may be right. Somebody didn't "close" the disk. If they put it in the same machine, they may be able to just "close" it and it will probably be okay.

                This is correct.
                I looked and to me it doesn't appear it has been opened, I tried a couple other CD/DVD's and it's the same thing. I'll have a chance to go out later and I'll see if I can find a cleaner or something.
