Right click on the disc image and select 'get info'. See if the disc shows the 6-700MB of data. If the disc doesn't show as having data on it I would assume the discs were not burned correctly. You can also try checking them in the disc utilty.
Are they CD-R or CD-R/W discs?

Thank you very much for your reply babowa; picture CDs are normally burnt just for use on my iMac - they won't read on a PC, and they now show as a blank disc on the Mac, although they used to read fine. I use Finder for burning for PC and they open with no problems on a PC, but still read as a blank disc on my iMac. Again, thanks for your assistance. Graham

Thank you for your help; I'm using CD-R discs which, after burning and verifying they have content on another machine, show up as a blank recordable disc on my iMac. The 'get info' screen shows ' 8 KB on disc for 0 items ' and, when I move the desktop icon for the CD manually into iPhoto, iPhoto opens but then shows 'unreadable files - unrecognised format' . Ironically, if I put a genuine unrecorded disc in, it opens iPhoto! I can't understand why the iMac is reading recorded photo CDs as blank when they're not, but plays audio CDs and DVDs without a problem. Your assistance is very welcome, thank you. Graham

Unfortunately, I may not be able to help further because I rarely use iPhoto (usually use Aperture, Grapic Converter and others) and Photo-to-Movie to create slideshows from photos which I then burn to a DVD which can be played in any player.
Did you check for the content as suggested?

Thanks very much for your help anyway babowa; I did check the content, they are recorded, it's just my iMac which is reading them as blank. Cheers, Graham
