Downloading Photos From Memory Cards


Windows xp was great for downloading pics, eventhough it would freeze at times. Vista was horrible. Windows 7 is very confusing. When i insert a cd-r to copy pics from memory cards, it promps to name the cd if you want, i don't so i just click next, than it gives me a blank/shaded screen, and a message at the bottom right saying there are pics ready to download, but when i click on it, it does not do anything. It send the photos to the c drive and there is where i can copy to the cd, horrible. Leave it like windows xp nice and simple. Tell me what i am doing wrong

Hp Pc Destroyed 2 Memory Cards

I just bought this hp desktop 2 weeks ago - today i put in a camera xd card, and it started running slowly and wouldn't load all of the pictures stored on the card in the folder. I ejected it safely and put it in again, and this time, to my horror, discovered that every single picture had been erased from the card, it was now empty. I confirmed this by putting it back in the camera, which said the card was empty. I had just taken several photos for a project due tonight and have lost them.

I took some random shots of nothing and put the card back in the pc - this time it told me the card (drive h on the pc) needed to be formatted, and that if i did, everything would be erased. Since it already erased everything, i selected "start" on the format window, and after 30 or so seconds, it told me the drive could not be formatted.

So i used a different camera with a different card entirely (this time an sd card) and the same thing happened. It erased everything, made the computer lag, and then asked to be formatted only to declare itself un-formattable. I put the sd card back into my camera - the camera then told me the card needed to be formatted, i selected yes from it's menu, it then told me the card had some sort of error. So it's basically ruined.

Why is this happening?  Are the cards just too old for windows 7 to acknowledge?  Is a newer card the answer or do i need to download something?

Flash Cards Not Working

None of my half dozen different flash drives (520mb to 4 mb) will work with my dell xps 9000 w/win 7 64-bit pro. All of these flash cards work on my xp computers. I have reformatted most of them. But any file over 400 kb freezes the copy or paste process. The usb ports all work for other hardware (except the printer which works erratically on the win 7 computer but reliably on xp. ) The only way i can easily transfer files is by using a flash card from my camera in the card reader port.

I have updated the bios, uninstalled root hubs, applied the nvdia usb ehci hotfix, pulled the power plug with the computer shut off and waited two minutes to plug it back in, spun a dead frog clockwise over the cpu 4 times. (The power plug idea seemed bizarre but i did it anyway. ) 

The tech at dell at first said i needed a new motherboard but then changed his mind and said i needed to buy windows 7 compatible flash drives. Is there really such a thing? I have seen flash drives advertised as being compatible for use as virtual memory but i have  never heard you needed special flash drives to work with system 7. I've seen this problem discussed other places and have applied the solutions suggested. Any other suggestions?

Output To 2 Sound Cards Simultaneously

I have many reasons why i would want to output to multiple sound cards simultaneously. I know i am not the only one who was this problem based on a couple quick bing searches. I would like to be able to output sound to multiple sound cards at the same time instead of having to switch the "default device" in the audio panel all the time i want them all to be the default device. I want to use my usb headset and my speakers at the same time. I know windows is capable of this because while one is playing i can "test" the other and they both play sound at the same time as far as i know there is simply no setting for this.

Realtek Ac'97 Sound Cards Problem

I went through every step ms support could come up with and the issue is the same. In xp pro, my sound was perfect. The upgrade to w7 did something strange to the sound i couldn't put a finger on. Then a speaker test revealed distortion in my left (front) speaker and the center speaker. They were also very low compared to the right side.

Installing the driver vista_win7_r238.exe turned all my speaker levels to an equal arrangement, but there was extreme bass distortion from the left and center. What was really fun was when my speakers suddenly stopped working altogether. There appears to be damage from high frequencies sent to my speakers. How w7 screwed up on audio is beyond me. This is the heart of any multimedia setup.

Gtx 260 Dual Graphics Cards

Is there any gain in using twin sli graphics cards? i.e. If you had two gtx 260 cards how much would you gain? Would it double the cards memory or would you only get a percentage, of the second card. Hope thats clear.

Win7 Won't Read Standard Sd Cards

I have this front panel card reader , just plugs into a standard usb port. If i format the card in my camera (fat), win7 won't read it, says i need to format it. However, if i boot back into xp, the same card reader reads it just fine.



Also it reads 2gb cards as 971mb, as you can see.

I do have the disk that came with the card reader, but it says if on xp or later you don't need to install the driver, which i didn't in xp as it just worked when i plugged it in. And actually, win7 won't even read the cd, i have to boot back into xp just for that too. So apparently win7 can't read certain file systems or something. I can burn disks just fine, tho, and the cd is readable in xp using the same drive so it's not the drive or the disk that's the problem.

Oh, i have 2 separate sd cards, both with the same issue.

Dual Nvidia 240 Gt Pcie X16 Cards

Recently migrated my system from windows xp sp3 to windows 7 . Hardware consisted of:- asus a8n32-sli deluxe motherboard- amd fx-60 dual core processor- 4gb ddr2 memory- multiple hard drives with much space- dual pcie x16 xfx nvidia geforce 7900gt video cards w/256mb memory and sli support, but slinot enabled- two samsung monitors: syncmaster 214t and syncmaster 244t, each plugged into its own video card- other stuff. It all worked great under windows xp. I recently migrated to windows 7.

Before migrating, i ran the windows 7 adviser app. It indicated no hardware heartburn, but pointed out a few software items that needed to be addressed (corel paintshop pro x, and so on).

Unfortunately, after migrating, i immediately noticed problems with the 7900gt cards as documented in the faq thread in this forum.

http://social. Answers.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/w7pictures/thread/f98ade7b-67ba-4347-ac3d-dcdad4aaaa60

As documented in that forum entry, no amount of driver updates or fondling would fix the loss of sync issue. I finally tried changing the color resolution to 16 bits from 32 bits which resolved the problem, but then aero no longer did its cute transparency thing. I purchased 2 asus engt240 nvidia 240gt cards w/512 mb memory to replace the nvidia 7900 gt cards. I also downloaded the latest nvidia drivers for these cards (the drivers apparently support most of the cards with nvidia chips). The problem is this: windows 7 refuses to recognize the 240gt card that is installed in the upper pcie x16 slot in my motherboard.

Both cards work correctly when either one of them is installed in the lower pcie slot. But neither of the cards work (or is recognized) when installed in the upper slot. The monitor is blank. Device manager does not show that the card is present. When i install either card in the lower slot, device manager properly shows that the card is installed and windows 7 works properly. It does not matter which monitor is installed on the card: both monitors work when attached to a 240gt card in the lower pcie slot, but neither works when attached to a 240gt card in the upper slot.

However, when i re-install either of the two old 7900gt cards in the upper pcie slot with a 240gt card in the lower slot, device manager recognizes it, along with the 240gt card in the lower slot. The problem is that windows 7 once again has the sync problem on the monitor attached to the 7900gt card. Windows 7 has no problem with the newer 240gt card. As before, the only way i can resolve the sync issue is to change the color depth on the 7900gt card to 16 bits.

And as before, aero quits working. Perusing all the various bios screens did not offer any ideas as to what is going on. I am currently working with a 7900gt card and a 240gt card installed with no aero support.

Using Several Lan Cards On One Computer To Share Internet Connection

I'm aware that there are many threads and questions already posted about internet connection sharing but i find my problem very specific. I have one computer running on windows 7 and it has 3 lan cards:

1) internet connection
2) connection with 2nd computer
3) connection with 3rd computer (via wifi, ad-hoc)

The idea is simple - i want to share the internet connection with 2nd and 3rd computer. I belive i understand idea of ics but there is one thing bothering me - when enabling ics i have to specify the interface that i want to share internet connection with. When i set it to connection [2] there is no problem with internet connection on the 2nd computer but still there is no internet on the 3rd one and vice-versa. The whole configuration was running fine on xp, but as far as i remember there was no need to specify the 'share' interface so the [1] connection was shared with all others. Is it possible to set up such configuration on windows 7 without using any additional switch or router devices?

Magnifier On Win 7 With Ati Graphics Cards Flashes / Blinks

I've been dealing with this since i built my new development workstation for work. I rely on the magnifier as i have bad eyes. I have a triple monitor setup with a 24" in the center and a 20" on either side. I just built a new core i7 workstation with two ati 7000 series cards. The ati cards and drivers seem to be causing a problem with magnifier where parts of the image blink in and out of existence in the docked magnified image.

I have the latest drivers from ati. Here is a video i shot that shows the problem:-

http://www.Youtube.com/watch?V=vw-7ggarvuk

One suggestion was that it was maybe ati's power saving features causing the card to run too slowly and causing the issue. I have confirmed this with another system like mine in another office, his where 4000 series cards. This does not appear to be a problem in vista (but it could be that the vista machine i tried had older ati drivers).

As i said, i've tried getting help from ati with 0 luck. They apparently don't care.

Note: i'm actually running server 2008 r2 with the desktop experience installed and aero turned on. This is not a problem with aero off. I like aero with the magnifier (with nvidia hardware anyways) as it's much smoother and faster. I've seen this happen in windows 7 as well though and to my knowledge the code bases re: aero are the same.

This configuration works fine with nvidia cards and drivers, i.e. No flashing / blinking. Please don't tell me the solution is to switch back to nvidia hardware, that would suck.

Downloading Xp Mode

I am trying to download windows xp mode for windows 7 professional for a brand new laptop of my boss from my windows vista business machine. But it is unable to do so, as microsoft requires authentication. I am an it guy and i have registered his windows 7 on my email id. If microsoft needs, i can provide it. I cannot download windows xp mode in my office as it is 500 mb is size. Moreover, my boss is not having enough time to spare his laptop for downloading this software and thereby reducing the speed of internet at his own end for other activities like downloading emails on ms outlook, using video chats etc. Can anyone suggest what can be done?

My Photos Have Disappeared

Most of my photos have disappeared; what happened to them? I transferred a bunch of pictures onto this new laptop. I had them arranged by month. I could access them by going to the pictures library or to user/my name/my pictures.

If i go to the pictures library and arrange by month, i can see them, but if i click to make it bigger, it says windows viewer can't open this because the picture has been deleted or it's in a location that isn't available. ? What happened to my pictures?

Downloading Of Software Disappears

For the past few months whenever i go to download software from the internet or download a pdf file, they never show up. I get the download status window and it tells me that it is complete, but i always either download to my desktop or my documents and nothing ever shows up. I even do a search for the file and windows vista tells me it does not exist. This is getting very irritating and hoping that coming to this forum helps. I am not sure if it is a some setting that has changed or what. Looking forward to any help.

Stretched Photos From Mobile

I have a brand new computer with windows 7 installed. Everything looks perfect except that every time i transfer pictures from my mobile they look horizontally stretched. The dimensions of the jpeg from my lgkf600 are: 2048x1536 the same problem is for every picture taken with my mobile and already stored on my hdd (the one i had as storage even before i use windows 7. Though if i upload one of these "stretched" pictures to a forum, or facebook for example, they look normal again. Do you have any ideas or solutions to my problem? It's really annoying!

(I tried to find on this forum some answer about my problem, but i haven't seen something that fits me, if there one, please do excuse me for the repetition. )

Moving Photos Around Within A Folder

I have had windows 7 for only a week now after having vista for a few agonizing months. I was really happy with xp but i had to purchase a new computer that came with vista. After having so many problems i upgraded to 7. My wife and i take alot of pictures and the click and drag feature was really great for us. I spent a couple of hours on 7 trying to arrange pictures in the order that i want and had no success. Please bring back the click and drag. If i could figure out a way to put xp on this new computer , i would do that.

Problems Downloading Programs With Win 7

I previously had vista installed on my dell but i had some sort of virus, so i went to a tech store (i'm living in south america so options are limited obviously) and they re-installed windows 7 on my computer. But i can't download a number of things - firefox, skype, adobe flash player, and programs necessary for my work. It doesn't give me the option to "use as administrator". Anyways, any help would be appreciated.

For example, when i go to the skype homepage, it will start downloading, then state that "skype has stopped working". I am using the 64 bit version of windows, and i can't access the 32 bit version, and i've tried everything that has been suggested in the forums.

Downloading And Viewing A Pdf File

Photos Will Not Rotate After Importing From Camera

Photos will not rotate when i copy them from my camera to the computer, however when i open them up in photoshop or other photo editors, the photo is rotated to the correct position already. This problem gives me a different orientation using photo editors and a different orientation using the windows default picture viewer.

Photos taken on the camera are automatically rotated based on how i was holding the camera. Then when i put them on the computer (i don't use an import program, i just copy and paste) they are shown in the wrong orientation (usually vertical pictures are horizontal). Now i rotate them to fix them until i open them up and photoshop and my pictures are actually upright to begin with.

Basically i rotate photos when it is already rotated to the correct position. The problem is that windows vista and 7 always show the wrong preview. This is frustrating because i can't find the correct rotation. If i do ps my photos will always be in one orientation and then when using windows to preview images it's in another orientation. What's the problem? I noticed this happens on my friend's computers as well.

Cannot Email Photos In Live Mail

I've just had a new pc with windows 7 and windows live mail, and am still getting used to it, so very sorry if i am just being plain thick! I can send and receive regular emails fine, unless i add an photo - then, they are sent but not received. I have a couple of email addresses and have been trying all day to send myself a photo from one to the other, but the only way it worked was by
Sending it from my hotmail address online (not from windows live mail).

Do you have any ideas what i'm doing wrong? I am using the 'add photos' button then selecting a photo from my pictures, clicking 'add' and 'done' and everything seems to work ok, but non of the emails have arrived back.

Sorting Photos By Dragging Within A Folder

I'm in shock ! I loaded windows 7 before going on vacation and now that i'm back, i wanted to sort my trip's 1000+ videos/pictures like i always did by dragging them around within a folder and then renaming them once in the desired order. This is step one before producing a slideshow or video and even the most amateur users know that .

It does not work in windows 7 ?

It is mind-boggling that i then read in your forum that this critical user feature was removed "by design" . Tell me there is a way to do it ! If not, this is as stupid as removing cut & paste . Whoever did this "by design" should be fired and quickly before he does other stupid things like that. I'm sorry about venting my frustration like this but this is unbelievable. It means i have to re-format and reload xp or vista back in order to be able to efficiently do my video/slideshow because of such a key feature missing in windows 7.

Please help by suggesting another way of doing it efficiently like before . If no other solution (and i am afraid this is the case from what i have read in your forum) , then please add this urgently at the top of your fix list.

Organize Photos By Date And Time

How to organize photos by date and time? I am finally at a a point in life when i am no longer at the bleeding edge of technology and believe it has passed me by. I bought a new laptop with windows 7 so i could organize my photos. However, i cannot find a way to organize my photos by date then time. For example, a recent trip to disney world i have over 1000 photos from 5 different cameras; all have correct date/time stamps and i want to put all of these photos in one folder and organize by date and time.

Each picture's file name begins with the letter of the person that took the photo, and are then number sequentially. All photos are also tagged w/ individuals, park, event, etc. However, i cannot find a way other than date. Once i get them in order i will then make a slide presentation in movie maker. I need help. How do i arrange my photos by date and time?

Crash / Bsod After Downloading Security Update

After receiving a mcafee update in late july my computer asked to restart. During starting up my computer got to the password page and then crashed to bsod. I restarted it in safe mode and then did a recovery as suggested which seemed to solve the problem. However my mcafee security center continually dropped protection so i contacted mcafee and they advised me to uninstall the old mcafee and download the new version. After download my computer crashed as before and on contacting mcafee was told there was an issue that their engineers are working on, but gave me no time frame for a resolution.

I have since attempted to download kaspersky security software, but after using the scan and finding nothing the security centre requested a restart after a update.guess what happened. Crash to bsod again!. My computer works fine after the removal of the software once i, ve employed recovery, but this obviously leaves me with only windows defender and no anti-virus software. Is this a mcafee issue or has their software caused some damage to my windows software or computer hardware? Please help i'm feeling a little defenseless.

A few days ago, while having a video conference with my friend from spain(i'm in ireland), my pc froze completely and nothing worked but the hard reboot. Now it's happening almost every time i try to download any . Flv video. Sometimes i can see . Flv videos for 1 hour, some times for 5 minutes before i have to reboot the machine again.

I was thinking it was firefox browser  but by my surprise it happened with explorer too. I was googling the subject and some forums suggest update drivers. And they are updated and still the same. Another sites blame on windows 7, but i bought my laptop in december2009 and never had this issue before. It's happening since 21st of march 2010. Why is faulty now? I've been on the same web pages always, no hacker's or weird sites. I'd really appreciate if some one can help me out with this issue before is getting worse.

Pentium dual core cpu t4300 @ 2. 10 ghz

0x00000007f Bsod Downloading Games Using Internet

I just updated and rebuilt my pc and have reinstalled win 7 64 bit and am constantly getting a bsod while using the pc. Specifically while downloading/installing/playing games. I have also had the error occur just while surfing the internet. From the program blue screen viewer it seems to be caused by ntoskrnl.exe+7f1c0 and/or ntoskrnl.exe+7e769.

I can not find any solution to fix this issue, i have updated drivers, i have ran the microsoft memory checker, i have changed out my memory, tried 2 other video cards, tried two different wireless network cards, now on wired connection, i even changed motherboards, got the errors on both ssd and hdd. The only things i haven't changed out is the ps and cpu, since i am using the pc to write this i am ruling out the cpu as the issue.

I have used memtest86 and prime95 to test the memory and cpu, nothing is coming back with errors or issues. I did run driver verifier and got two .dmp files for some specific files but not sure what to do with those now. It seems to be software/driver issue but i can not figure it out.
