    Help with photo's on a disc

    This may seem a silly question but I Have some photo's on a disc (round one) for the computer, so now they are on a disc, can they be copied on the compter to a usb stick or am I stuck with them on the disc? Thanks for any help

    No of course not, just a simple drag/drop or copy/paste will put them anywhere, like on your USB stick etc.

    If you already have them on your computer then just plug the USB stick in and copy them over. If they're only on the CD/DVD then copy them off there on to your computer then over to the USB stick. You could copy them straight over to the USB from the CD/DVD but you might aswell have as many copies as you can in different places.

    You can have as many copies of a photo in as many different places as you want, and if you value the photos then this is highly recommended. Computer hard drives can die, CD/DVDs can get badly damaged and USB sticks are easily wiped. Backup backup backup :thumbsup:
