JPGs will not show image other than file name burned on CD

September 22, 2014 at 13:41:23
Specs: Windows 7
windows 7 shows half the files on the CD correctly and the other half it gives the correct name but shows no bytes to the file. Burned CD on this computer. Other computers open all the JPGs correctly. Any ideas why this happens on the computer that created the CD?

Try cleaning the CD.

If not you could try a lens cleaning kit on the drive itself. These are a CD with brushes, upon which you apply cleaning fluid.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

That's an odd one. Some probably irrelevent questions:

How much ram in that thing?

If you right click on one of the zero byte files and choose 'properties' does it give the file extension?

Are you sure the files you're accessing are on the cd you burned and not at their original location on the drive?

IT gives the correct file extension with zero bytes. The files are there. I can have them verified and viewed on another computer. Plenty of RAM.

What happens if you click on one of the zero byte files and attempt to open it?

Does this happen with all picture CDs you've burned or just this one?

Are you using the same viewing software on all computers?

One point I was trying to make above was that presumably the jpgs you burned to the disk are still on that computer and maybe you're unknowingly viewing the originals instead of the ones on the burned cd. Yeah I know that shouldn't matter and doesn't make sense either but if the only computer that doesn't work correctly with the disk is the one with the original files. . . maybe that has something to do with it.

If that's not it, it should be easy enough to rule out. Just move the pictures on the computer to another folder and then try the cd again.

some of the files are there on the CD with the correct bytes and some have the zero bytes as shown on the one computer. Other computers show all files correctly. Clicking on a file with the zero bytes gives file not found yet opening it on another computer works fine from the CD. CD burned with Windows Media Player which is the same on the other computers. I can try moving the files and see what happens but that does not make sense either. But will try.

I agree. But if we get it figured out it's going to be something overlooked or unexpected.
