can not view photos on dvd using vista

I burned a DVD-R (photos) on my XP Desktop (XPS 400) and tried to open it in
Vista on my E6500 laptop. No dice. In "My Computer" it showed a folder
with nothing in it!

When I burned it on my desktop I did the quick format (sonic DLA asked to format), added the files
and then Finalized the disk. I tried it on a another  laptop
(Dell) which is running XP and it had the photos.

What do I need  to  do?

Please help. And thank you.

Might be a reason Vista does not support DLA . IF you can try coping the disk with something other than DLA that might fix the issue.

You can also try using ISO Buster and it might help you be able to view those pictures again.

I thought of  that. But if  that's case why does the folder show up? Wouldn't it   just give me an incomparability error?

Hi there,

If it is possible, install the same software Sonic DLA on Vista system and check. It will work (Make sure to check whether Sonic DLA is compatible with Vista or not before you proceed)
