Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

Media Center file types

Hello, I have an hp m8100y media center pc with windows vista ultimate installed on it. Media center, which comes with ultimate, does not recognize any of my pictures. It will see the folder that they are in, but not the pictures themselves. I am not sure, but I think it might be the fact that all of the pictures' file extensions are uppercase (.JPG). Now, help and support within ultimate informs me that it supports .jpg and .jpeg. I am wondering if the difference between uppercase (.JPG) and lowercase (.jpg) would be enough for the media center to not recognize it.

Thanks in advance.

Try to rename one of the pictures to lower case .jpg. Normally this isn't an issue, since Windows is not case sensitive on file names. Somewhere along the way you may have changed the association.

Another thing to try is to right click on a JPG file and select Open With / Choose Program. Select the picture viewer of your choice and select Always Use. That should set the association permanently.

Yes, file extensions, .gif, .bitmap, .jpg are case sensitive. Just like if you tried to save a word document as .DOC then the file would look like test.DOC.doc. Change case and it will be fine.

Vista home premium


there is no problems about your system. Its maybe your systems is lack media "codecs" that enhance your DVD files or Movies to play. maybe you should download any HD dvd codecs and install to your system. or may search google the "media player classic" and use as your player or VLC player preety cool player for almost movies.
