Scanner & Camera Wizard

  [email protected]#36 11:45 15 Oct 2006

Is there a way of starting this without having to unplug and re plug.

I take my CF card out of my camera and plug it into my card reader, which initiates the scanner & cammera wizard that allows me to name files and download to specific folders etc. However if I only select some of the pictures - because I want to save them with different names etc then the wizard closes after the first download. The only way to get back is to unplug the card and then plug it in again to open the wizard.

I can't find a 'start scanner & camera wizard' option - am I looking in the wrong place.

Do you mean the wizard ( I assume you do) or do you mean the autoplay facility which asks you what you want to do?

Yes I mean the wizard. I want to be able to go back and download other files to other locations with other names etc.

Which OS are you using?

In XP its Start>allprogrammes>accessories>camera and scanner wizard.

I should have added once there if you right click on "scanner and camera wizard" you can send a shortcut to your desktop to give faster access.

Don't use Scanner & Camera Wizard'
Simply put the card in the slot.
Open 'My computer'
The card is shown as a new 'Removable Drive'
Open the folders
Select your pics
Put'em where you like.

I'm using XP MCE but scanner and camera wizard does not appear under Start>accessories>etc

Simply cutting and pasting does not allow you to name pictures sequentially, just copy the camera file name to the new location. So the wizard is useful.

Does anyone know what the .exe file is that starts it?

Thats odd. I have XP MCE.

anskyber just had a look at my setup and its there just where you said it was.
Only thing I can assume [email protected]#36 is that it has somehow been moved to another folder. You could try using the Windows search facility to find it and then put a shortcut on the desktop as suggested.

I've tried doing a search but although there are plenty of wizards none are the scanner and camera wizard. Can someone right click on properties of thiers and let me know which folder, or what the full file name is please.
