Question - mend, repair, fix

What are these?

Last year on Windows xp I transferred 'still photo's' from Canon camcorder mv930 SD card to my desk top PC, which transferred from the camera to Zoombrowser windows.
Then automatically to 'My Pictures' I then placed all the photo's in to a file entitled France, then sorted all photo's to relevant files/folders Eg: folder name: Saint Malo all related photo's were placed in that folder and so on until all were sorted. Then was successfully burned the 'France' folder with it's subfolders to a DVD.

I have a laptop ‘ACER’ using Windows 7 I copied the DVD to ' My pictures' on the laptop and opened it to find that all folders have a green dot with white checkmark in/on it. I then opened one subfolder (Saint Malo) to find the photo's each had the same Green dot with white check mark in/on it. Going through the rest the most common was the Green dot with a couple of folders having a blue dot and white circle in/on it and four photo's with a red dot and white x in/on it.
I hope you have a solution SD!. if not can't see why you asked for more information on my 'Photo's on laptop' about four questions back from this one.

thanks electro, sorry its late been busy. yes the ones with red dot and white x can be opened. I'll just play around sorting the photos until it tells me something I can't do.

Not sure. (I don't have Windows 7, but I do a LOT of trouble shooting)

The green with check mark seems to indicate some ideal condition.

My guess is that blue and white may indicate that some files in that folder may be marked as "to be backed up"

Are the photos with the red mark ok? Can you open them?
If the red mark appears only AFTER you modified that file in any way, and the file can still be accessed normaly without any error message, it may be a remeinder that this file got flagged as a "to be backed up" file.
If that's the case, if you launch any backup utility and create a backup, those files sould revert to green.
