    in my root directory C is a file "autoexec.cam" that looks like a jpg image file. in Quickview it contains the exact same lines as autoexec.bat. where did this file come from? and can i delete it?

    When you installed software for your camera, it probably wanted to make changes to the autoexec.bat, so it made a backup of the file called autoexec.cam. It probably doesn't take up any space, so there's no reason to delete it. It's probably safe to delete it though.
