Your problem is probably your associations with the file types you have defined.
Any reader you buy usually comes with some software that assists (or at least tries to assist) in what programs will be opened when you insert a memory card with certain types of files on them. Sometimes their idea of a good program (and it usually is something they supply with their software) is not what you want.
Look into changing your associations with file types. Google for the answer. It is not that hard, and you can even find out how to do it on these Forums. I am not going to bother repeating what can easily be found.
I bought a new Media Center XP computer that has the 9 in 1 card reader built in.
On my old computer my reader was external and I could chose what program I wanted card ? to open with.
I can't seem to find this option for the new PC and the only option it gives me is "Paint shop pro" which is not what I want to use.
I have looked eveywhere in the documentation and can't find anything. HP tech support is now in India and It is very difficult to understand what their techs are saying.
Any advise would be appreciated.
