What type of file?

Do you know the file extension? It's possible you have no viewer for that file type on the phone.

Look up IRFANVIEW and see if it can decode it.

Hi Proffit
Thank you for fast response. Unable to use IRfanview program. Because when I select a picture right click on properties. It doesn't show me any option to open. It only gives me General, File type, Size, Modified, Attribute, Location. No option to select any App. to open picture file.
If I copy picture file to C: drive. Picture file will open. No problem at all.
