    Copied Pictures to CD on old Computer. New Computer will not read. Was told that old computer is only one that can read CD, was not closed out properly. Old Computer is no longer available. What can I do to get information off CD

    When I load the CD into drive Computer does not reconize it as having any information on it. Says there is 0 bytes free space and total size is 0 bytes. All other types of CD's work fine. Just one from other computer.

    Are you sure you really copied?

    After you copied, did you 'test' the cd to be sure you could see the pictures?

    Its likely that you used InCD or DirectCD to copy the pictures using "drag and drop" on the old PC.

    These type of writing systems use a proprietary format and require the same software to read to data on another PC.
