I recently installed Ubuntu, so I am still a newbie. But I can not upload any pictures from a disc. I can play audio and DVD disc's no problem. I have tried multiple discs with pictures on them and still get the same issue. Ubuntu recognizes that their is a disc and how many megabytes are used on the disc but it shows nothing on the disc. please help! Very frustrating!

What type of picture disc's, did you make them or order them from a store – Mateo Sep 19 '13 at 23:41
You mean, burn the pictures? – Braiam Sep 20 '13 at 0:13
@Braiam Yeah, or buy photo disks from Walgreen's \ Walmart (which may have a proprietary system) – Mateo Sep 20 '13 at 0:44
umm... I feel dupe here – Braiam Sep 20 '13 at 0:47
@ braiam these walmart cd's are different and need proprietary software – damien Sep 20 '13 at 2:42

Since those photo disks require proprietary software My suggestion is to use windows or mac to first copy the pictures to your computer then back them up to a normal CD/DVD which can then be used on Ubuntu.

If you are using a Windows or Mac, you can use the software included on every Walmart Photo CD to copy pictures to your computer.

Insert the Photo CD into your CD-ROM drive.

The CD will automatically launch the Walmart Digital Photo Viewer.

Use the green arrows to expand a folder and see all of the pictures in that set. To select a photo to transfer to your computer, "pin" it to the corkboard on the right of the screen. To do this, click the top right corner of a photo. A red pushpin will appear and the photo will be sent to the corkboard area. If you change your mind about a photo and want to remove it from the corkboard, click the red pin again.

When you have pinned all the photos you want to transfer to your computer, click Save Photos to Hard Drive at the top of the corkboard.

On the next screen, you can choose where to save your photos. Click My Pictures to create a new folder inside your computer's My Pictures folder, or select Another Location if you want to save them elsewhere. If you choose Another Location, click Browse to navigate to the folder on your computer where you want to send the photos, or to create a new folder. Next, you can name this folder. If you skip this step, the folder will be labeled with today's date.

To rename your photos as they are being transferred, check the box next to "Rename images using the folder name." Photos will be given the name of the folder and then a number to distinguish them. You can also rename them once they have been saved to your computer. Click Copy Photos to begin copying the selected photos. When you are finished, click Done.
