I have received two different discs containing the same wedding photos that I cannot open. My CD drive plays other discs (start-up program discs). One of the discs is a DVD-R; the other has no identifying info (both are reliable sources). What can I do?

Your CD drive may not be compatible with DVD media. Ascertain it's make and model number in Device Manager, then enter that make and model into Google Search and press <Enter>

From the search hits that appear, there should be a page which tells you what kind of media that drive can read from and write to.

Do you have a CD/DVD or only a CD player? If only a CD, it won't play DVDs, get a DVD drive.
