UH..."That's funny" I said to myself as I went in to see what was not configured right. AFTER 6 HRS. I came to the conclusion that windows MESSED UP AGAIN!!!!!! In XP I could plug in the camera an a wizard came up... "WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE US TO DO" it asked..... Copy pictures to my computer using window camera and scanner wizard was my answer..... AND BAMMM, OF WE WENT!!!! NOW it seems I MUST IMPORT EVERY PICTURE ON MY 4GB SD CARD THAT IS IN THE CAMERA...... NO check marks allowing me to CHOOSE WHAT I WANT TO IMPORT!!!! I CALLED WINDOW AND THEY WANT MONEY TO EVEN TALK TO ME ON THE PHONE!!!! THE $ LAPTOPS AND % DESKTOPS WE HAVE OWNED IN THE LAST * YRS WAS NOT ENOUGH!?!? I WILL NOT BUY ! WINDOWS ANYTHING EVER EVER EVER EVER AGAIN IF I DON'T GET THIS HANDLED!!! I (AS WELL AS MOSE WINDOWS OWNERS) DO NOT DESERVE TO HAVE OUR LOYALTY SLAUGHTERED LIKE THIS!!! IF ANYONE WANTS TO HELP. IT IS THE 16TH of FEB 2010....IF I CANT GET THIS RESOLVED BY 3/1/2010 I will be selling all our computers and going apple FULL ON plus I WILL take 2 days from work and picket the Redmond office with my coworkers and my very good friend Steven Swartz from the San Francisco Chronicle!!!

Ctrl-A selects everything. Shift-Click will get everything up to that point. Ctrl-Click will allow you to select things separately.

Microsoft has always charged for support. Nothing new there. Even for people like me with hundreds of desktops has to pay per incident or use enterprise contracts to get support.

You do realize that this prevents you from buying any PC that is pre-built...as they all come with Windows.

Not everything works 100% of the time without any effort in Apple OS X land. Trust me, I'm typing tonight on a Mac Book and it has been quite frustrating to get many things working well on this machine. My experience is with Windows and Linux....but this Apple is a whole different thing.

I have no knowledge of "SCANNER & CAMERA WIZARD" but have always used free software from google called Picasa which downloads my camera pics & has many tools to work with and display them.

Try Windows Live Photo Gallery. You may find it does pretty much what the old Scanner and Camera Wizard did, and then some.

Perhaps you should ask calmly next time to find your answer instead of getting all upset.


You might give this a try to see if it may help.

To my knowledge,
Windows 7 does not come with Photo transfer tool, You have to download one.. Windows Live Photo Gallery is free and is part of the whole Windows Live thing. I use that its simple to understand and not hard at all, and It should come up with with options of what do you want to do when you plug in your camera.. Also you can import pictures from within the program as well.

Hope this helps.

Download Windows Live Photo Gallery from the above post.
Plug in your camera - if it pops up with a window for your device, select the change program link under 'import pictures and videos', and switch it to Live Photo Gallery.

Now double click on that import button. Live Photo Gallery will scan your device and then bring up a window asking if you would like to review, organise and group photos. Click next, and you will have many import options available.

If, when you plug in your device, it pops up with a generic autoplay (like for a usb flash drive) then select 'import with Windows live photo gallery'. Same thing will happen as above.

Windows does have a 'fax and scan' wizard, but it does not deal with cameras.

Apple is not the only option either, there are many linux options available. Windows is also able to install third-party programs, such as the above mentioned Picasa.

Also, nice way of asking for help. You will definitely get someone helpful asking like that.

I personally use Cam2PC Free version for all my camera downloading can be a little involved to set-up the file naming due to the fact that it is extremely powerful - A must IMO for the serious snapper

cam2pc - Image Viewer and fully featured Digital Imaging software to Download, Organize, Modify and Share your photos
