Your post is a little unclear. Are you saying that you can explore the E drive and see the files? If so, have you tried to copy/paste one of the files to your hard drive, then opening it from there?

Did you burn the actual pics, or just shortcuts to the pics (which I assume are no longer on the hard drive)? If you right-click on one of these "shortcuts" and select "Properties", what are the size of these "shortcuts". Does the "Properties" applet have a "Shortcut" tab at the top? If so, you don't have any pics, just shortcut icons with invalid paths.

Please let us know if you found someone's advice to be helpful.
