    So I went got some professional pictures taken of me and the photographer burned them to dick using a PC... When I go to insert the Cd in my Macbook pro it tells me that the cd is blank. I can put the same Cd in my sisters PC and it will open right up. Strange huh? What am I doing wrong? Any help would be much appreciated. Thx

    Odds are you're not doing anything wrong - the problem is with the way the CD was created. The two most common causes of this behavior are:
    1. The session wasn't closed after burning
    2. The disk wasn't closed after burning

    Now say I take that cd and load the pics on my sisters pc and then reburn and close the session properly. Will the cd work in my Mac?

    Yes. It should work.
