AND THE WINNER IS.........................

The Camera Man from London Mr. peripatetic.

I figured I had something set wrong and I also figured one of you would know what it was.

I changed the communication setting and there they were!:-D

Thanks to all for your help,

Crow

There's another trick you can try.

When you are in PTP communication mode, you can right-click on the camera device icon in windows explorer and select properties.

This gives you a dialog box with a bunch of options. One of the things you can do is set the PC to automatically download all images into a specified folder on your hard disk and automatically delete the pictures from the camera when it's finished.

I will check that out too. Can you set it up so it will not delete the files from the camera automatically?

I would hate to have a problem during download and lose everything.

You don't have to if you don't want to. :-)

One more suggestion--I'm surprised it hasn't been said already. Get a USB CF card reader. For $15 or $20 you have a device you can leave connected to the computer. Downloading images will not use your battery, and you won't have you camera tethered to the computer (if your space is anything like mine, attaching the cam to the PC leaves it dangerously balanced and taking up valuable space).

And you know how much those LION batteries cost. LION batts have a life of around 350 or so full cycles. Do want to waste them downloading images?

If you use a laptop, you can get a PCMCIA adapter that allows you to plug the CF card into a pc slot.
