    I have a PC with Windows XP SP2. Also have an IPOD and its software loaded on the computer.

    When I reansfer files from my Nikon camera SD card (they start as jpeg files), the automatically are converted to Quicktime files.

    I have no problem opening them with MS Office Picture Manager or picture viewer.

    Problem is when I want to share with friends and email them and they cannot open them.

    How do I stop my computer from changing file extensions (type) when I copy jpegs to my hard drive.

    If I can find out how to stop the changes, then I need to go and convert extsting files back to jpeg (several years of pictures).

    HELP!!!!!

    you need to change your default settings for viewing the piks using gallery...instead of quiktime....seems to me when you copy your copying in the same format....better still when you transfer dont view just transfer instead....and place them in pictures folder...
