Cool can xp read files from vista

i have a laptop with windows vista basic. when i burn any kind of file, jpeg, avi, btmp, etc. to a cd (or put it on a flash drive,) and then try to open it on my desktop (which is an xp) the drive or cd opens but its blank, like i never burnt the files to the cd / flash drive. is this because vista is newer and has more advanced properties that xp cant read or do i just need to change some settings?

I have not heard of this before but it sounds like a potential problem. I will test it on my computer when i get a chance. Anyone else experience this problem before?

I do it constantly but have not experienced the problem. I suppose you do have an installed program in XP for viewing pictures?
