    When I had XP I would put the SD card in the card reader and a "wizard" would open in which I could choose which pics I wanted to put in a folder and label them. In Windows 7 when I put the card in the reader it seems I can label them and put them in a folder but there is no way to choose which ones go where. Am I missing something?

    How come I get an email that a response has been posted and yet there is no response here?

    Possibly posted then deleted.
    I've done that when I realised my reply was inappropriate.

    It was not an inappropriate reply, I just wonder why it was never posted.
    This is the reply as it appeared in my email:
    The functions in Windows XP are similar to Windows 7. If you want specific pictures to go to some folder, you'll have to highlight those pics first then either cut or copy them to the folder destination you want to. There are several ways of getting those pics organized. It depends on the software you're using. The traditional way is just using Windows Explorer and locating those files and manually copy/pasting them to the computer hard drive. Other software would be Picasa, camera software and a lot more.

    what happened to this?

    From post # 4:

    It went into the Spam bucket. Probably the guy's other posts were less legitimate.

    I have my autoplay set to "ask me." I open the SD card in Windows Explorer, copy all folders/pictures to a hard drive temporary folder and then go to work on them. I don't see why you shouldn't be able to work with the pictures on the SD card the same way as with XP.

    But, what was the "wizard" you used? Was that a part of XP or a utility from somewhere?

    It was an XP utility. I have a copy of XP on an old hard drive, I will check it out and post some screen shots of what I am referring to.
    Stay tuned.

    Here are some screen shots from XP! is when I insert the SD card
    #1 Is when I inset the SD card and choose the option circled.
    #2 Opens the scanner and camera wizard
    #3 Shows to clear all and allows you to choose the pictures you want to import
    #4 Allows you to label the picture and choose the folder you want to put them in.

    This allows you to choose and label which picture you want in which folders.
    This is much easier than importing all the pictures, naming them and then copying and pasting them in various folders.

    Microsoft seems to want to make things more difficult with each succeeding OS.
    Like the convoluted way they have for shitting down Windows8, right clickin the lowerright corner to show the "charms", choose power options. then choose shut down.
    Way to many operations for a simple task.
    I know about creating a shortcut to shut down. But If I tried to explain this to my wife, the computer would never get shut downn

    Looks like Windows Live Photo Gallery may have a similar function. Wanna bet how well or poorly it compares to the XP utility? :(

    I'll check it out but it probably won't be as good because it is "new and improved"

    I think that the issue with post # 5 is "select the program you want." :) He'd like XP's Scanner and Camera Wizard but it's not in Windows 7 and so far has not found anything comparable.

    Windows Live seems like it will work similar to the XP utility.
    Thanks for the tip.
