Mac photos vs. PC photos
Blaine McCartney, Photographer
Columbus | NE | USA | Posted: 3:11 PM on 11.01.07
->> My work station just switched over from a Mac computer to a PC computer. I moved all my old photos from my Mac over to a server and I now can't open them with my PC. I get a message that says, "Could not complete your request because it is not the right kind of document."

Never had this problem before, and I don't have this problem with current photos I shoot. Can anyone help me out on this?
Thanks,
Blaine

->> they need to have a .jpg (or .nef or .tif or .cr2 or whatever) extension. I'm betting they were named without an extension on the mac, therefore the pc doesn't know what they are. If you simply put a .jpg on the end they will be fine.

->> Blaine,

Do your files have the extension? i.e. ".jpg" or ".tif"


The PC can not tell the difference between a jpg or a word document without an extension at the end of the file name.

->> Weird...I tried that earlier and it didn't work. I tried again and MOVED the photo from the server onto my desktop and it worked fine. Think we have Mac servers, so that may have been a problem.
Thanks Craig.

->> perhaps they may allocate the savings towards a pay increase, or keeping someone on staff.
