Much to my surprise, I tried to open older CD's with photos and they showed as blank?????? Is there anything I can do to get these photos. some but not all of these CD's are as old as 1985. Running iPhoto 08, and Leopard.
Homemade CDs (and DVDs) don't last for ever unfortunately.
Make sure they are clean (by which I mean dust and scratch free, not referring to the content!) and also try them on asnother computer in case it is your superdrive - which you could also try cleaning.
