Hello. My HD on the Win7 laptop would not read (later diagnosed as CRC errors, etc, etc), so, I attached it to my MacBook and managed to get all the photos off it. They came across as .jpg OK, but when I put them to a Win 7 OS they will not open. Any offers? Thanks Simon

What if you right click on the jpg file, choose open with and select Paint for example?

I think that I have sorted it thanks. Your right click idea led me down another path and I changed file associations a couple of times and bingo - I got them to open in Windows Photo Viewer as I was used to. Thanks again!
