Reads my photoCD and shows pictures NOT on CD - Adobe Photoshop Elements

I burn all my pictures to a CD. When bringing up Elements 2 (In fact Photoshop 7 also) it shows pictures that were on a previous CD, not the one in the CD drive. Where is it storing these old pictures and how do I get rid of them?? I am using Windows XP Home Edition and an HP 753n computer,with 512 MB of memory and an 80 GB hard drive. Thanks...

    Ed, try closing up the my computer icon in the file browser and reopening it. (I'm assuming this is windows?) I've noticed that in XP, for me at least, PE tends to remember the old images a bit too well.You can also purge the browser memory from the More button on the file browser window.

    it's reading from a cache - it's faster for the program to do that than to
    reload all the images as thumbs each time you select it. It assumes that the
    same drive/folder will have the same images.... which, believe it or not,
    is very logical!

    i have the same thing happen with other browsers (XnView, for one) - for
    that particular program, there's a "refresh" icon, which deletes the old
    thumbs and reloads fresh from the disk - you could also try right-clicking
    (PC only) in the browser (but not on a thumb - select an "empty" area) and
    selecting the refresh option - if available....

    Again, I haven't tried this - just a thought....

    Thanks guys, with your help I fould the cure. In the rectangular window that shows you where your browsing, there is an arrow head at the end of the window. Click this "head" and a dropdown ask if you want to refresh or "CLEAR CACHE", clear and were reading the current disk. Thanks again for all the input.
