I read that to create a backup CD of My Pictures, I should drag the My Pictures desktop shortcut icon to the CD drive shortcut icon and drop it there. I did that. I closed My Pictures and played the newly created CD. I looked at several pictures. Confident that my 300 pictures were now safe on the CD, I deleted most of the pictures in My Pictures. Still confident, I emptied the Recycle Bin. Today I needed a couple pictures from the CD. I opened the CD and 2Xclicked the My Pictures icon thinking I was going to view the pictures I had put on the CD. Finding only a few pictures I realized that the My Pictures icon on the CD had opened the My Pictures file on the computer. Can anyone tell me how I can get to the pictures on the CD? As long as that My Pictures icon is on the CD, I don’t know how to get past it. The CD is a CD-R so I can’t remove the icon. I’m thinking if I could somehow disable the My Pictures on my computer I could get to the pictures on the CD and make a new CD without the My Pictures icon. Or do it on a different computer that doesn’t have a My Pictures program. I’m using Windows XP home.
