Picture Import Settings


I want to change the import settings for my canon camera when importing photos using windows 7. I had already managed to do this once but want to adjust the settings again. However, when i connect my camera to my pc, it automatically starts importing photos based on current settings with no option to change.

The above is from another thread regarding the same problem i have. The dialog box with "import settings" flashes, then goes away before you can make changes. The person above was given a link to a boilerplate answer that doesn't address the problem.

Cannot Import Video

I have a netbook running windows 7 starter. I am trying to use my new sony handycam and so i downloaded windows live movie maker. I had the old movie maker on my dell with xp and it just crashes and freezes constantly. I thought i would try to do it on the new netbook, but when i try to drag or open a video file, it moves it but has a grey screen with a red round dot and x on it. The clips have the right time length but no video footage or sound. What is wrong? Files are . Mpeg i believe which is supposed to be a supported file.

Import Video From Camcorder

I have a sony dcr-trv22 camcorder that connects to my computer via 1394 firewire. I'm using windows 7 64-bit professional. When i connect the camera to the computer, the camcorder shows up under "printers and devices" with the correct name, so it appears to connect ok. However, i cannot do anything else with it. I can't import video using either windows live movie maker or nero software. The import software doesn't recognize the camcorder, even though the computer does recognize it and has installed the windows native drivers for it. Sony does not offer drivers for this device other than those found in the windows os.

How can i import video when the software won't recognize it, but the computer does?

Import Favorites Lost Their Icons

I recently installed a new workstation running windows xp sp3 and ie7 (as was my previous workstation1). Can't go to ie8 because it is not certified to run with my company's enterprise software.

I exported my ie favorites from the old pc and then imported them on the new one; all the icons for my favorite sites have changed to generic ones. Why did the icons disappear and how can i get them back to stay? I have visited some of the sites and sometimes the icon comes back and other times it doesn't. Also, the icons don't always remain. Sometimes, for no apparent reason when i launch ie, some of them are back to generic again.

Extremely Slow Music Import

I've got a fresh install of windows 7 on a new system and am adding music to my wmp library. The music folder is around 60 gb and is stored on my whs. The music import has been running now for almost 24 hours and is finally almost done. This seems like a ridiculous amount of time required to import music.

On my older vista system (much lower specs), the same import took way less time ( i think under a couple hours) and i was on a 100mbps ethernet. With the new system, i'm on a gigabit ethernet.

Why would it be taking so long under windows 7 compared to vista?

Note: i have unchecked the check box to retrieve additional information from the internet, and it didn't make a difference

System specs:
Amd ii x2 250 dual @ 3. 0 ghz
4 gb ram
Windows 7 32 bit

Changing Import Destination In Outlook 2007

When i import messages from outlook express 6 to outlook 2007, all messages go to outlook mailbox, by default. Is there a way to change the destination folder? I want the messages to go to an archive folder (. Pst file), not the mailbox folder, because service provider has a size limit on the mailbox folder, and the number of messages to import is quite large. I've tried exporting from oe 6, and importing from outlook 2007. Neither approach allows me to select the destination folder. Please help out.

Import Pictures And Video Box Will Not Close

About a month ago i started having a random issue with the "import pictures and video" box. The computer completes the import of pictures and video from my digital camera, a noise tells me it is done, but the box remains on the screen. I click on "cancel" and then "yes" when it asks if i want to cancel importing. Yet the box still remains. It remains even if i disconnect the cord to my camera. I have to end the program using the task manager. I am doing nothing differently to have caused this problem. I import pictures about 4 times a week. Any ideas?

Import Scan Error Access Denied

Hp scanjet 4600 scans and imports ok in admin user account but not in my personal one that is also admin account. Scan proceeds ok until import is attempted. Subdirectory and file name is created (visible in windows explorer) in the target location but the wizard aborts before completing the save and indicates that the import could not be completed: access denied. The only way to get out of this loop is to cancel and answer yes to delete the file. Any ideas what is causing this or interfering with the import function?

Import Storage Folders In Live Mail

I am transferring data from an old hard drive to a new hard drive. I "exported" all my messages, which included a lot of storage folders from the old drive to disc. Now i am trying to "import" the messages and it tells me the folders "are empty or in use by another program". They are not empty. I can clearly see that the date transferred correctly. How do i get the storage folders and messages contained therein imported in to windows live mail on my new hard drive?

Unable To Import Outlook Express Mail

I have a new computer running windows 7. I used outlook express on my old xp computer. I found the file on my old computer with emails, folders, etc. And have it on my new computer under documents. I tried to import the folder and i get an error. I have lots of sub folders and so i decided to import them one at a time. I was able to import one folder, but i can't find that folder now in live mail. I get an error when i import the inbox, too.

So, where do i find my imported mail and any idea on the inbox import error. It doesn't say what the error is, just says an error has occurred.

Attaching A Picture In Outlook

I can open my pictures directly from the start button. I see all my photos and it says there are 2 locations. C:usersname my pictures and c:userspublic my pictures. I can navigate from the computer prompt to either of these directories. They both show up and i can access the photos. The problem. When i am using outlook and try to attach a picture, i navigate to c:usersname but there is no my pictures folder showing?

Alternatively, i can also open documents from the start menu and there are 2 folders listed as my pictures. I am denied access to both. I am logged on as administrator and the permissions seem to be set to allow me access. On my other pc, i see the same thing (2 folders), but i can access the folder that is showing as a shortcut.

I don't know if these situations are related, but i'm stumped right now on getting outlook to browse to a folder that i can access my pictures from. Any help will be appreciated.

I have been searching to figure this out and am at a loss. I really like the way the folders look with the cd cover on them, but dont want to constantly fix them. I have over 800 folders with cd covers on them. I need help.

Desktop Picture Change To Black

Why does my desktop picture change to black. I know i don't have it set to change every so many minutes because i've not set that and it also just goes to black! My aunt's computer with windows 7 does the same thing. I've not been able to figure out why this happens. I can set a desktop theme even, download one from the internet, the wallpaper is set to whatever the theme sets it to, looks great, then within about 10 minutes or so, pow! The background goes to black! Any idea why this happens?

Excel Insert Picture Does Not Display

We have 2 identical dell systems, one with xp and one with windows 7, both running office 2007. When i create an excel document on the windows 7 system and use the insert picture option, the document will open on other systems but the picture does not display (just the outline of the box). If i create this same document on the xp system everyone can open the document and see the picture. The file is being saved on a server running windows server 2003. Even systems running windows 2000 can open the xp version of the document. I don't know how to solve this problem other than to downgrade to xp (not a pleasant experience).

Picture Slide Inside Of Folder

On windows xp there was a way to make a picture slide inside of a folder. So what it would look like is. Say you have 10 pictures inside a folder. Upon opening that folder. There would be one big picture in the center of the screen, and underneath were tiny icons of all your other pictures. And all you had to do was click the left or right button to browse through them. Or simply click on another picture to view it.

Is there a way to do this in windows 7? Or am i stuck with just large icons and the slide show option?

Media Center Live Tv No Picture, Just Sound

The live tv function in media center gives me a message that says "your tv does not allow display of this program through the dvi input source. Please choose another tv input source. " I can only hear the sound but there's no.

My tv tuner is a ati theater 650 pro. It is connected to my cable box through s-video. My tv is also connected to the cable box through hdmi cable. The weird thing is, the message disappears and picture finally shows up when i unplug the hdmi cable from my tv or from the cable box itself. The picture also shows up when the tv is turned on. When i first configured this, i was able to successfully see picture, sound, and even tested the recording capabilities with no problem. I tried to reconfigure the tv signal in media center several times and updated the tv tuner's drivers but to no avail.

Message - No Disc In Drive - Can't Burn Picture Cd

I selected about 40 pictures from a gallery folder to burn to disc. I get a window that opens and says "files waiting to be burned to disc" followed by a list of the selected image files. I click 'burn to disc', and am prompted to put an empty disc into the cd-rom drive. After i do, and after closing the drive door, i get a 'checking disc' msg. In the window. In a few seconds the drive door opens, and i see this message: "there is no disc in the cd or dvd burner".

"Please insert a writable disc into the d drive". This drive plays discs fine, and i had no problems burning when i used vista, but after a hd crash, i upgraded to win7 and this is my first attempt at making a disc. Is there some compatibility issue here?. Device mgr. Says the device is working. The driver is up to date.
