Hello all!

I found some old CDs that I burned which have a backup of old photos on them from an old computer. I wanted to copy them off onto my new external drive, but when I put the disc in, I can't see any of the data. All I can see is a README.TXT file that says "This disc is a backup CD. Except for this file the contents of this disc must be accessed using your backup software." Since I haven't had a Windows XP machine in a long time, I don't have any XP OS installs laying around anywhere. Does anyone know how I could currently gain access to the data on these disks? I'm running Windows 10 right now in case that helps the solution.

Thank you in advance!

Unfortunately that's the problem at the moment, I can't find any old copies of XP laying around and no one I know has one. Is that really the only solution and these discs are buggered?
