Opening older images

Mar 18, 2012 2:20 PM

I am using Win 7, CS5, Bridge 4.1. I have many .jpg images from 5 to 10 years ago stored on an external USB drive. These are original unadulterated .jpgs straight from the camera. In the past I have worked on copies of them in PS 7. They pop up immediately in Irfanview Thumbnails, and will open in Irfanview. But when I try to view them in Bridge I just see place-holders, (blank boxes) with the file names, but no image. If I try to open them in Bridge it freezes and has to be shut down. I'd like to go back and work on some of these images in CS5. Any suggestions?

    Can these images be opened successfully with an external viewer, e.g., Windows Photo Viewer, or IrfanView?
