Put the disc in.
It should auto run and then you can do whatever you like with the images.
Do you want to copy the whole disc to your Pictures folder?
If so you can just drag and drop the entire folder. If you are unsure of how to do this please shout.
You can also copy across individual pictures.

Open your computer dialogue and click on the DVD to open it. Also open My pictures.

Now slide the file with the photos on from the computer box to the my pictures box. You should then be able to open them on your pc.

I hope that is clear, I am not very good at explaining something I can do easily myself.
