    I have some old CD-Rs with Jpgs on them, they were burned in 2003, on a PC and my Imac cannot read them.

    They are not even acknowledged in it and I have to reboot to eject them.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    I am not sure if Snow leopard read them, but I KNOW I was able to read them on my old Intel-based Mac Pro...

    ADDED: Also they read fine on a PC.., I am going to try and copy them to a PC then reburn them, but I was hoping for an easier solution...

    Could be a matter of old age (of the CD-Rs). CDRs don't last forever, and many are rubbish quality to start with. If the contents is important I'd try to read them on different machines, preferably with different DVD drives. Your chances may be best if you find a machine with just a CD drive, not a DVD drive.
