My daughter has Windows 95B installed on her computer. The computer is a clone with P233MMX CPU, 64mgs RAM, and a 24X CDROM drive. She has a CD of photos that will open just fine on my computer, that has Windows 98SE on it. Her computer will open the Windows95 companion CD just fine, so I know the drive is OK. When I insert the photo CD, it recognizes it only as a music CD. Could it be that Windows95B isn't equipped to recognize a high pixel photo CD? The CDROM apparantly has two choices when a CD is inserted...it's either recognized as a music CD or a Data CD, and when it isn't recognized as a data CD, then, by default, it assumes it's a music CD. Is this assumption correct? Any help on this would be appreciated. Thanks.

I think Windows does not know what to do with them as an application has not been installed on the PC to handle them. If you use Windows Explorer or My Computer does it see the files but cannot open them? If so try installing a photo editor on the PC.

It depends on what created them and the file type, the file extension. I would install the same one you are using on your PC running Windows 98.

A good general viewer I like for graphics is IrfanView, it's available from: http://stud1.tuwien.ac.at/~e9227474/english.htm

OK...I guess I misunderstood you when you said 'photo editor'. I was thinking photo viewer, but I guess Irfanview is both. Yes, she has Irfanview on her computer. In fact, the photos were viewed on my computer with Irfanview. The problem is that on her computer, the CD isn't recognized as anything but a music CD. I can't seem to get past that. I'll keep trying and researching the problem, but if you or anyone knows of a similar problem, please direct me to any solution. Thanks.
