ok guys i really hope someone knows the answer, i will be so grateful...
we just re-formatted our hd
all the data was stored on dvd's (as data) using nero 6. music was stored on 2 disks,and work fine.. all other data including programme files, photos, word documents etc were stored on other dvd's..
ok so here's the problem...
programme install files - none of them work anymore - when i click on the set up icon a dos window pops up mometarily but doesnt appear to do anything
photos - when exploring the disk there are no thumbnail previews, just image icons - when i click on properties it says they are jpeg's and the size of the file - when i try to preview the pic using any image viewer a message appears "unable to preview image" also photos wont open in the programme i normally use to edit
word douments - these are displayed in some kind of code and dont show any text or graphics contained within them, same thing with all office files
we have tried to uninstall/reinstall all the software with no success
some data was also burned to a cd rom and all the data here works fine inc. pics, progs and word docs...
i really hope someone can help me because it appears that although i have all the data i cant access precious photos
