I work for an Opticians, we take photos of the retina with a camera conected to a PC that runs Windows 95. We want to be able to tranfer images to another computer using windows XP. I'm not sure how to do this? Can anybody give me any pointers? We use the same monitor for both by using some sort of diverter switch, what is this called?
Do you know what format the images are stored in. Can you use Windows Explorer on the Win 95 machine and determine the file extension? (the three letters after the . on the file name). Only if it is some universal format, e.g jpg, not a specific format to the application program used on the Win 95 machine, will you be able to open it with a program on Win XP.
Post extension in a response on the forum and someone will advise you whether it can be opened using a program on XP.
Probably the easiest of the suggestions above is to use floppy disks, provided your XP machine has a floppy drive (I assume your Win 95 one has?). Just bear in mind that one floppy disk won't hold an image file any larger than 1.44MB.
To discover the format of your picture files, right-click on the file name, then in the mini-menu left-click Properties. Among the details listed you'll see the type of file.
