I inserted the compact flash (Toshiba) into the card reader (Dazzle) to view my vacation pictures. I selected view as a slide show. It was a great slide show. I wanted to show it to a friend so I selected slide show again and the pictures were GONE!

Did XP stash them somewhere? are they gone forever? I thought the pictures remained on the compact flash card until I removed, saved, or consciously deleted them. Actually, I took some mundane photos and repeated the scenario and they did not disappear. Any thoughts?

Thanks for your help
