Why don't you just copy them to your Pictures folder in Windows 7 - that should only take a few seconds. Then you can import them into your programs to edit or whatever you want to do with them.
The easiest way is to open your Pictures folder and snap it to half the screen by dragging it over to one side. When your mouse touches the edge of the screen, it will snap to exactly 1/2 of the screen. Then open up your CD and snap it to the other side of the screen. Then just drag the picture file on the CD over to the Windows 7 Pictures folder. If the pictures on the CD are not in a file, just make a new file in the Windows 7 Pictures folder, highlight all the pictures on the CD and drag them into the new folder.
Fireplace, yarn, knitting needles, books, wine... check. Yup, I'm ready for winter.
