    You need to give us more info. What OS? What photo app are you using? What is the file type of the photo? Did you copy the file off of the CD and onto your desktop?

    What is the file type of the photo? Which app are you using? Paint? Try something like FastStone instead.

    Did you copy the file to your desktop yet? If you can't even copy the file, then it may be a problem with the CD itself.

    If you can open the files from your desktop, then it's probably not a software issue. It sounds like something is wrong with your CD. I'd burn another copy or better yet, store it on an external HD. CD media doesn't last forever.

    Figure 5 years for a cd unless special care is taken. I have some that I made in 2001 that still work. But I still update my cds / dvds every once in a while.

    Might try a cd cleaner, I have saved some burned cds by using them.
