did you get a cd with the camera.if so have you installed the programs of may need them to import the images to xp.ussually xp picks them up but this is not always the case how is your camera connected to the pc?.darren

Download the very good image viewer Irfanview free from click here and once installed use it the browse the removable disk when you connect your camera. You could also buy a card reader which means you don't need to connect your camera to the PC and the card reader will be permananently connected.

hm... i have the same type of thing, where my camera is seen as an F: drive and i see a file called DDCI or something close to that then double click i can access all my pictures, but in win xp pro i have a viewer which comes up saying if i want to import pics.

Yes, most cameras when connected as a removable drive will have a Folder, generally called DCIM and inside that folder another called 100xxxxx (xxxx being the camera name) for example mine 100 nikon. A fuji camera would be 100 fuji etc.. that is the folder that has the pictures in it.

I have only used Nikon, Fuji and Olympus cameras which all fall into the above format. Not sure if any other makes do the same.
