Windows 7: Can't read JPEGs in Win 7

True Dsperber, odd thing is all his other SD cards work fine with Win 7. The external card reader is a good idea.

@anjou2, you could try this free program SlimDrivers with the card inserted to see if there may be a stray, odd driver out there.

Hmmm strange, could you try this maybe. Copy all the jpegs first of all to the XP machine. Then go to your Windows 7 machine and plug the SD card in, and let Windows 7 format it (to FAT32 of course). Then when the formatting is done, plug the SD back into the XP machine, copy the jpegs onto the SD again, then see if your SD card will work on Windows 7 or not?

Thanks, I'm sure this is worth trying but I'm losing the will to live over this project and I think I'll pass. Again I'm very grateful for all inputs but the spouse is complaining the jobs are piling up else-where !

This shouldn't take more than 10 minutes, but of course you have your priorities.

Been there myself...came back a few days later and my fix seemed oddly very simple.

You mentioned that your XP and Win7 systems were two separate machines. And if two separate machines, are they on a home network so you can get to one from the other?

So does that mean you performed:

(1) read the SD card in XP and copied the JPG's to hard drive on your XP machine,

(2) insert the card into Win7 machine and FORMAT the card to FAT32 using Win7

(3) reinsert the card into your XP machine and copy the JPG's from hard drive of XP machine to the card (meaning the card formatted to FAT32 by Win7 is obviously readable by XP)

(4) reinsert the card into your Win7 machine and it now opens fine.


If so, or close enough, then obviously the original formatting to FAT32 is the suspect culprit here. Surely FAT32 from either WinXP or Win7 should have been perfectly compatible to either OS, just as they are right now apparently.

Was the card formatted go FAT32 when you bought it? Was it formatted to FAT32 by your recorder device?

Note that the recommended FORMAT utility for SD (and microSDHC) cards is from Panasonic. Just for future reference. Results seem to be improved performance, and reliable formatting... based on comments by others. I know I've used it to format my own SDHC cards to FAT32 (for my portable music player).

Anyway, glad you finally got your problem resolved.

The whole Tools/Folder Options/View feature in Win 7 sucks. In XP you had Thumbnails and could automatically set jpeg files to display on opening. How do you do the same thing in Win7?
