Did you copy the images from the CD to a folder on your desktop?
I don't really understand what your saying, you did.

Could you give the exact procedure you used?
What program do you view images in?
What is your Operating System (XP Home, XP Pro, etc., ....)?

A cd drive is hardware. How could you download it to the desktop?

If you are talking about a program, try downloading it to your programs menu.

I think that he made a shortcut on his desktop for the images on the CD while the CD was still in the drive. Delete the shortcut, copy the images to your HDD, and then create a shortcut to that folder on your desktop.

Hope this helps! :thumbsup:
