Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Can't download to my laptop

\015 Stupid Win-doze seems to convert all my images to jpg when I download from my Canon 40D to my laptop (which runs XP Home OS).The laptop has no DVD/CD drive - just two USB ports. I bought it forAlaska just to download and save images - then got home and much to mychagrin found that all my images were JPG and none of the RAW shots Itook were in RAW. I managed, but now I am taking another trip and I wantRAW files, not JPG!I searched Canon's site for hours and went to DPD review and other places and still have no answers.\015

Answers :

First, you must set the camera to take RAW pictures. Check your manual for the correct procedure. Second, you must have a program on your computer to read the RAW files. Sometimes, cameras come with software to do this. Photoshop Elements and Photoshop are both capable of reading RAW files.
