Can I download photos from my digital camera?

Post by Oont Ooid »

I recently got a Windows 7 - which doesn't have those handy-dandy photo downloaders of yore, just crappy windows downloaders. Can i download my photos directly into XnView? If so, how?
Thanks

Thanks Pierre - but it won't unzip. (I took it from this site. Is it still viable?)
Thanks OO

Thanks Xn Triq The first media detector is the one that won't unzip for me. The second one I don't understand. It looks like a list of various XnViews. I don't see anything about a media detector. Maybe i don't know how to read/interpret the list - ?

Hello OO :)

On the bottom of the official download page it says:
XnView v1.97.8 Complete version (Some Plugins/Addons & NConvert, ShellEx, Media Detector)
If you download XnView-win-full.zip, extract XnViewMediaDetector.exe from it and put it in the directory of your current XnView installation (usually C:\Program Files\XnView\), you should be able to call the utility from the Info menu.

@Pierre: Could you please update http://download.xnview.com/XnViewMediaDetector.zip to the latest version?
