digicam software keeps taking over .jpg extension

Q: digicam software keeps taking over .jpg extension

i have a very, very old digital camera. i of course installed the software that came with it. the problem is that every time i transfer pictures from the camera, .jpg files keep getting registered with this digicam's program (which is called 'image expert'). i want jpg's to open in internet explorer like they normally do. i keep having to delete the old association and create a new one.. then i've to go into the registry so i can get the thumbnail views working again.

there is no file association setting in the digicam's software. is there any way to stop this from happening? or has 'image expert' created a hopeless situation?

Preferred Solution: digicam software keeps taking over .jpg extension

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: digicam software keeps taking over .jpg extension

try the following.

Go to a .jpg picture and 'Right' click it. *Don't open it, JUST right click the unopened file*

From the menu choose 'Properties'.

Near the top is an option saying 'Opens With'.

Select that, then look through the list of programs it brings up.

From there you can bring up the default opening program of your choice - Internet

Explorer is in the list as is 'Windows Picture and Fax viewer' [which you might want to try out if you haven 't already].

The important part of this procedure is directly below the list of programs in the dialogue window itself-you'll see a line saying;
'Always use the selected program to open this kind of file'
**** Tick the checkbox you see there to make it your default opener for all your .jpg pictures.

I recently had cause to re-install Win10 on my notebook, and it told me that Intel Software Guard Extension Platform Software would be deleted and would need to be re-installed.After the Win10 re-installation I went to the download site for th Intel package, downloaded it, and unzipped it.When I attempted to run the execution file, I got a warning asking me if I really wished to proceed. Knowing nothing about this package, I was unsure about what I should do. Is there anything I should know before I tell it to proceed?

I'm not sure wich adblocker currently i should use?
I have a lifetime license for Adguard but i´m not sure if I should use this or should remain with the browser plugins?
 

A:Adblocker software or Browser Extension

I use the Adguard extension for more than 3 years now and I'm very happy with it. It is light and blocks everything it needs to block. It also has some protection against bad/malicious websites. I use the extension, since I don't need the desktop version. I used Adblock plus in the past, but I liked Adguard much more. µblock is also a good alternative, but after trying much adblocking extensions. I always return back to Adguard.

Hello,

Have a quite old program that ran on previous PC which used XP.
Would like to get it going again, if possible

Tried all the compatibility screens and wizaards, and it seems like one problem "might" be that W7 can't handle one of the program file xtensions called: .INS

I did a Google, but all that seems to come up are a multitude of sites that want to sell Registry scans, etc.

Is there a place anyone can recommend where I can obtain the extension inexpensively or free, to install ?

And, if i can get it, what do i do with it ?
Where do i place it, etc. ?

Much thanks as always,
Bob

A:Obtaining Software Of A File Extension ?

Hello Bob,

The file extension in itself should not cause a program to not run on win7.

I can find 12 references to programs that have used the .INS filetype

Alphabetic File Extension List

what is the actual program you are trying to install - if it was designed for XP then unless the program deals with system level access or is specifically written to only work on XP one of the compatibility modes should work.

another option if you have Professional or Ultimate Win7 is XPmode

One other option is to convert your existing files into a newer format and/or find a program that is win7 ready that can read the files or file conversions

My girlfriend wants to get a digicam. I have the Canon PowerShot G1. Have had it for a while and love it. I told her to buy me the G5 and she could have mine but that didnt fly.

She loves the G1 as well but doesnt want o spend that much money. I think she is in the $200 to $300 price range.

Some of the things, or the one single most thing, she likes about he G1 is the balck an white feature among other things. Can anyone recommend some cameras out there that may be suitable for her. She doesnt need anything professional, obviously, as suggested byt the price range. But a good camera, with good features and good photo quality.

I am looking as you ponder but appreciate any help, suggestions and ideas. Thank you.
 

A:New Digicam Options

You always have to buy a memory card with a new camera and many in that price range don’t come with battery chargers. With a top price total of $300 you are going to be a bit limited.

I never shoot in B&W. You get the same results converting color to B&W and have the option according to the shot. Freeware viewers like Irfanview will batch convert to B&W.

I think your best bet in that price range is to look at getting something with a decent memory card and charger from E-Bay. Look up the reviews if you see something interesting in your price range:

Hi. I've narrowed down the choices to pretty much two cameras:

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage...CategoryId=pcmcat29000050002&id=1110263397766

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage...CategoryId=pcmcat31100050033&id=1099394286987

now, they're both the same price and the have the same zoom capabilities (more or less) and they are both 4MP quality. Which one seems like the better buy for a simple camera for the family? I know that for the Kodak, it has some special Kodak nonrechargeable battery which might mean its pricey to replace...but I could be wrong. On the other hand, the kodak can store 2 more megs of photos and it is 5x on the digital zoom. PLEASE HELP! If you guys know of a better camera for under 200, please recommend it...thank you!

A friend of mine has a Barbie Digicam and would appreciate some information. I was wondering if anyone visiting this forum is familiar with the Barbie Digicam. Don't have any model numbers, but I can't imagine that there are many different editions of this hardware...lol.

Firstly he would like to know how to avoid waiting for the introduction to complete (approximately 4 minutes). The "readme" file says that clicking a mouse button will quit the intro, but that doesn't work.

Secondly he would like to know if there is a way to use it without the CD in the drawer.

Thirdly, does anyone know if this cam would be capable of webcam on Yahoo Messenger? When his cam is plugged into USB port, Yahoo Messenger software doesn't seem to recognise his cam as being connected.

Any advice would be appreciated.... not much info online in relation to this cam.

Regards,
Yvonne
 

A:Barbie Digicam.....

The Barbie digital camera is a VERY low-end STILL camera... it won't work as a web cam. The maximum resolution is 160x120...in other words, it takes thumbnails.
The TWAIN drivers, like the camera are very low-end, and not customizable. The camera (and accompanying software) was designed for young girls (pre-teen), and is not really suitable for anything else.
There are other low-end digital cameras available for a very low price that are MUCH better than the Barbie-cam (Polaroid Fun-Flash, for instance).

The reason that I know all this is that I bought a Barbie cam on sale, thinking it would be marginal but usable. After discovering what a fool I had made of myself, I gave it to a friend for her young daughter and bought a decent Olympus camera. Now, three years later, I am still happy with the Olympus camera, and my opinion of the Barbie cam hasn't changed.

Hi there dear gurus...

I have a puzzling problem but I'm sure you gurus out there will find it chicken feet...do give me some advise yah?

I'm running a Win98 PC. I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-P5 3.2 MgPxl digital camera that I occassionally connect (via USB) to the PC, which will detect it as a Removable Disk. Sometimes I need to connect the camera and reboot the PC for it to detect. I then perform my usual picture downloads.
The problem is this:
Lately, I CANNOT get the PC to detect the camera. I've connected and reconnected it countless times, rebooted the PC countless times, reinstalled the Sony USB driver countless times, but I still cannot see the camera at all. I can't detect it using the Add New Hardware method, nor can I see it in the Device Mgr.
I tried it on another Win98 PC (which I have used previously to d/l pictures from this same camera) but I can't have it detected either!

I have this funny feeling that the solution is going to be something simple but frustratingly it has eluded me so far.
Can someone offer some valuable advise?

I thank you all in advance...

Hi, I recently got a new digital camera and have been experimenting with making exciting short videos with it (seagull on roof opposite, helicopter flying overhead, dog chasing ball etc), and when I save the finished products to my PC they save as "Quicktime Movies".

But sadly Windows Media Player (my favourite player) won't play them, so I have to use 'Media Player Classic' or 'Nero'
Problem is, I can't for the life of me find a 'continuous play' button in Med Player Classic that will let the vid play over and over, and I don't want the hassle of having to click to restart it every time.
As regards Nero, I DID find a continuous play button, but the screen annoyingly 'blinks' for a fraction of a second before cycling back to the start each time.

So basically I've got 3 questions-
1- Can I make my digicam record videos in a format that Win Media Player will accept, or will it only record as 'Quicktime Movies'?
2- Is there a 'continuous play' button in Win Media Classic, I can't find it?
3- Is there any way of getting rid of the 'blink' in Nero?

(I'm Win XP Home)

A:Digicam videos: 3 questions

2- Is there a 'continuous play' button in Win Media Classic, I can't find it?If you're referring to Media Player Classic:View / Options... / Playback / In the Playback box, put a tick next to Repeat forever.

I was thinking of the Canon SD400, however I went to a small camera store and was being steered to the Pentax Optio S5i. It appears to be a sleak camera and less expensive than the Canon.

He could not tell me which camera had better quality. I went to Best Buy and Circuit City and they do not carry the Pentax. I still having leanings toward the Canon.

I have a Canon PowerShot A710.

Previously when I made movies with it and uploaded to my computer, the files were always .wmv, which I could then edit/manipulate on my Windows Movie Maker.

The last movie I shot, when uploaded, is an .avi file. My WMM doesn't recognize it.

Why did it change, and how can I fix this?
 

A:Digicam extensions changing

According to Canon’s specs the A710 is capable of exporting only AVI. The Windows Movie Maker makes the WMV files.

These are the M$ instructions for importing AVI:
“After importing the AVI or DiVX video file into Windows Movie Maker, add it to the storyboard/timeline without editing the video, and then save the movie as a WMV file by using the Save Movie Wizard in Windows Movie Maker. You can then import the resulting WMV file into Windows Movie Maker and edit the file."

I am having an issue that just popped up when I connect my Canon SX200IS digicam to my Win7 x64 HP Pavilion PC via USB. 1 or 2 seconds after the default sound Windows makes when connecting a device, the screen goes black with a colored distortion and then the PC reboots. According to the HP site my BIOS and all drivers for my hardware are up to date. I suspect some kind of video issue only because of the weird things happening with the display right before the crash. I don't connect my cam that often but it last worked on 2/25/10 the last time I downloaded pictures. I need help I guess, figuring out what has changed on my PC since then because it did work before without issue. I did remove the SD card and insert it directly into the PC's SD Card slot and that works without issue.

This is my first time to this site - if my full specs aren't shown from my profile please let me know and I will add them to this message.

Hi cabriozo and welcome to TSF!

First of all, try to keep your threads in one section only. If they need moving, then someone will do it for you, but don't post the same problem more than once please.

Secondly, on to the problem. What I would like you to do is to force a re-install of the USB drivers in Windows. To do this, follow these steps:
Right-click My Computer, select Properties.
Go to Hardware Tab, click Device Manager button.
Click View, make sure Show Hidden Devices option is ticked.
Physically unplug ALL USB devices from your system.
In the section "Universal Serial Bus Controllers", select every device in there one by one, and press delete then confirm the removal.
Restart your computer TWICE. Allow the computer to fully start up the first time, then restart again.
When the system has rebooted for the second time, plug in your device. It should now do a quick hardware install and should come up connected again.

Let us know how it goes, and if it doesn't work we can try something different.

6. Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-A75M-UD2H
7. CPU - AMD A8-3850 (2.9 GHZ)

Off late, my PC takes way too long to start any application. At times, even if I click on a folder, it doesn't open and finally the PC gives me the 'Wait or Close' option.

Even while switching off the PC, it takes a long time.

I clean my PC regularly and run scans from time to time. The PC doesn't show any virus or malware as of now.

Any suggestions what I can do? I assembled it not more than 2 years ago and it's started behaving like this off late.

Also, at times my 320 GB hard disk doesn't show up under my computer. I have to open my cabinet and tighten the SATA and Power cable and then it shows up again.

Any help will be appreciated.

Tell us the details of how you "clean my PC". What do you do exactly and how often?

Have you checked running processes or services through Task Manager when it seems to be slow?

The drive issue may be the cause. Have you tried another cable or connecting the hard drive to another port?

Hello,

I'm running Windows 2000 and sometime during the past couple of months the extension .ink has appeared.

For example, on the desktop I have a folder "Shortcut to Rotas" showing as
"Shortcut to Rotas.ink".

Under "Start", there is:

Windows Update.ink
Set Program Access and Defaults.ink

Under "Programs", there is:

Yahoo Messenger.ink
Acrobat Reader 5.0.ink
Digiguide.ink
Windows Media Player.ink

and so on.

I would be interested in any ideas you might have as to why this is happening.

Thank you.

Bye,
Penny.
