Strange problem. Removed harddrive from old Win 7 laptop. Put it in a case to use as an external USB drive. Wanted to save pix to newer Win 8 Dell laptop. When plugged into the Win 8 Dell LT I can see the drive. Under Users, I can only see the Public files, my area does not show up.
When I plug the drive into my Win 7 desktop I can see all Users. Under my area I can access all the files including the pictures in My Pictures. However, they appear "ghosted" - pale. Yet, I can open them with Windows or Paintshop and they look fine. Nothing that I've tried allows me to view these on the Win 8 laptop. I've tried burning them to a CD. I can see them in Win 7 DT, but they do not show up on the Win 8 LT. I've transferred them via my network to the Win 8 LT. I can see from the DT installed on the LT, but I cannot see them on LT.
Any thoughts would be helpful.
BTW: I did transfer some to my Google Drive and share them with the LT. I can see them online.
