photo attributes in windows xp

Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.dcameras (More info?)

I have a bunch of photos that i downloaded to my laptop pc using a usb card
reader. Then i burned those photos to cd to copy to my desktop pc.

The photos on my laptop have various photo attributes (date picture taken,
camera model, etc) but the ones on my desktop pc do not.

Is this because i burned them to cd? I would have thought the attributes
would have followed.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

    Burning the photos to a CD shouldn't strip off the EXIF info.
    I looked back at some CDs I had burned back in 2001 and the
    EXIF info was there. Frequently if a photo is modified with
    software the info is lost but if you can see it on the laptop
    then burning to a CD shouldn't strip it off.

    You should not have lost the data if you only copied or moved the files from
    the HD to the CD. If you open a file and then resave it, with or without
    any changes, you will lose the data.
