Problems with picture DVD/CDs

Post by roadrunner46 » Tue Feb 04, 2020 12:11 pm

I have a couple of UGA Media CD-roms, one F-4 Phantom reference and US Air Power 1

I have just found them in a drawer and wanted to play them on my Windows 10 PC. They don't play, it says, because the file type is not supported. I can see the files which are CO8 CO24?
From memory there are some great photos on these and I would love to savour them again.

Any ideas?

Hi,
I tried the discs in my LG BlueRay player and despite there being a UGA option it was finding nothing in each of the file folders in the disc.

Back to square one.

Have you tried VLC which can play most things? You can download it free from here: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html. Make sure you download it from the web site. Don't use the Windows Store app.
