Windows 7: Importing Photos ?

Importing Photos ?

I just went from W'7 RC to W'7 RTM Premium. When I was using the Trial Version I used a USB Flash drive to upload my photos from my other 'puter to the RC W'7...went so SLICK, I believe I just clicked or double clicked on contents of Flash drive.....anyway, I do remember they auto loaded into WMC Photo w/o a problem and they were ALL viewable. now with the Retail Version of W'7....I attempted to do the same BUT they do NOT auto upload to WMC Photo......I was able to LOOK at them though and they actually are NOT ALL viewable as before alot of them say cannot open. Seems ODD they do not have an IMPORT/EXPORT tool as always before??? Wonder WHY they all cannot be viewed now?
I am now about to COPY all the "files" to a NEW Folder and then drop that into "My Pictures" ........... ANY and ALL better advice sure appreciated......

Ok, if I understand this right, you was viewing your pics in WMC, just by clicking the picture right? Did you tried right click the pic, open with, choose WMC as default program. See will your pics open in WMC now. Other thing, try this: Context Menu - Add Copy To Folder and Move To Folder
it should create move/copy to folder command in your context menu, so you can press ctrl+a or drag your cursor over the pics you want to be selected, right click, and move/copy them where ever you want, example, directly to your pictures library. Now about that not all of them viewable, as valtonray said, maybe the format is issue? I don't have better guess then that.
Hope this helps
P.S I wonder what kind of export/import tool is that

Organized way of importing iphone 5 photos to Windows 7?
My family, later than most, has now gotten to the "tipping point" where we're taking more photos with an iphone than with a "real camera." But we're still "old school" enough that we like to print some of the better shots. And the iphone, which makes picture taking pretty easy, has made photo...
