Just frustrating is all
What about associating them to another program? I mean, if you right click on a picture and chose to open it with another program rather than your current one (e.g. picas, or even in your web browser) ? Try it and see what happens.

All I have is a little 5mb flash drive stick I use for school documents.

- Cant move them on to it as it says I dont have permission to move them


Can't open them with another program, just tells me the same thing.

It really it weird...

If you look at the "Library" you can see it shows the folders by month, and shows a picture from within the folder.... but when I open it they are all blocked...

Right click and select properties. Then select the security tab, then advanced, underneath permissions. Take a screenshot or a snip, it should look like this:

That's why I suggested moving them by booting into a BartPE disc or something outside the OS. How did you get them over to your computer from your wife's laptop? If you did it through the network, try the steps in reverse.

I see that the size of this image is ~ 8 Ko ! Is it a true picture?
Maybe these pictures are parts of the windows system pictures/icon...etc. and you may confuse your pictures!
There are many questions they might worth to check:
Did you change the location of your files/folders?
Do you have folder/file lock program?
Did you set a password to access any folder?
Did you try to completely deactivate the administrator account and reset its password?

-sigh-

Honestly I don't know if I did any of that. I really am not that computer savvy, I just know the basics. This is all I know.

My wife wanted me to store our family photos on my laptop, not her macbook. So I stuck my little 2GB flash drive in the usb port, dropped them on the flash drive, put the flash drive in here, then dropped them onto my photos

Now I am here...

That really is all I know I did, and now, if i have lost our family photos, she is going to MAD at me big time.

And yes in my stupidity, I removed them off her mac after I put them on here, so the only copy I have of them are on here, being unable to view them

I see a couple of things that could be causing issues. First, the file size in your one screenshot of 8 KB is very very lower for a picture file. Second, the extensions are .jpeg. If you are able to rename the files, try .jpg.

There's another possibility, i noticed you are useing Workgroup, you may need to change that to Home Group, that might give you different permissions. When you moved them to the flash drive, did you do copy the whole folder and paste it to the flash drive, because as others have said for a folder with 57 pic's in it 8 kilabits is way to small.

I literally "cut" the folder/pictures and pasted them onto my little mem stick.

How to I change from a work group to home group?

Ridiculous Lag by wmp300n
Hey all, So this has stumped me. Over the last couple days, my adapter has been acting up and it would drop the connection, and I would be unable to reconnect no matter what. I think I fixed that by changing the channel on my router from 1 to 9, and it hasn't dropped since (not yet anyways)....
