Sorry your post is obscure to say the least. Are you saying that after downloading your pictures to a memory stick you now cannot open memory stick.

Did you copy the pictures from another PC?

What make/model of memory stick?

What do you mean by brings everything thing up?

Can the Widows 7 PC see the stick?

You do not need a program to open pictures if they are the normal jpg etc

why do you call it a vault I have never heard of that on Windows 7.

Is the vault a type of folder/location from a program from your old laptop and you don't have that same program installed on your new laptop?

From a quick search a vault is where you keep encrypted file on your flash drive or in the case of Sony it's a microvault which compresses the files never used them myself.

Did you use a program that you downloaded or came with the drive to create the Vault on the flash drive?

I wonder why you would need to encrypt your ordinary pic files. Is there a reason? (if that's what you've done). As BRYNIT says, what program?

I'm guessing that your old machine may have had some pre installed software that stored your pics. Your new machine has not got this software. If you still have the old machine you could try and remove the pics from the evil clutches of this software and convert to standard jpeg or whatever, then you should be able to view them on your new machine. Or you could identify the software on the old machine and install it on the new one, if it is available to you.
