You cant access the files with your backup program but can you access them normally? If you can access them normally have you tried to compress them with a zip or rar program(winzip / winrar), then try to burn them on the disc? Or copy them to a usb drive and try to burn them on disc from another computer? Maybe you can try another program to backup with, here is a free one you might give a try http://www.freebyte.com/fbbackup/
What program are you using to backup your pics? I have used nero, adaptec, sonic, and others and the easiest way to do that was to make a data disc since it was just a backup. If your files are not corrupt or encrypted there really shouldn't be a problem, data is just data when it comes to a backup.

Don't use a backup to do it. Open Nero or Easy CD Creator and copy them to a cd or dvd.

This way they are usable right off the cd.
