Windows 7 - bitmap images on cd not seen on vista machine

Asked By mm1 on 29-Jul-07 07:50 PM
I have a cd with 10 bitmap images (burned to cd from an ultrasound machine),
my pc running Windows Vista Ultimate does not see any of the files via
Explorer, MS Office Picture Manager, or Windows Photo Gallery. However my old
Windows XP machine sees the bitmaps via the cd, no problem. Please help as I
would like Vista to see my images...

It may be a stretch...but does the following
article offer any useful info?

(933667) Picture files that have a .bmp extension
may not appear in the Windows Media Center
Picture Library in Windows Vista

Or...it may be a problem with the CD.
Maybe you could copy the .bmps to your
XP machine, upload them to the following
site and then download them to your Vista
machine. It also may help if you convert
them to JPEG while on the XP machine.

All you have to do is enter an e-mail
address in the Recipient field and
click the browse button to select the
file you wish to upload. Then click the

The next screen that appears will give
you the download link.

Thanks but that KB doesnt apply. Yes, i can open the images on my xp machine
and save them as another extension then copy them over but i would prefer
figuring out why Vista wont read the bmp images off the cd. ANy other
recommendations?

You stated the images were burned on
a CD from an ultrasound machine.
It's probably an issue with the CD format.

What if you copy the files to your XP
machine and burn a new CD.
