I am trying to take pictures of 3.5 discs using sabrent product. Files show on my computer but am having no luck opening each picture on any of the programs I have - paint & etc.
yes, photos 101
I can answer most questions if the level.
first off no photo editor does all formats of all camera's made.
that is a fact. some come close with $300 software. you don't have.
my guess is your camera uses the great TIFF format.
no PC STATED, NOR OS VERSION, SO I CAN KNOW WHAT
VERSION OF PAINT YOU HAVE.
Windows 10 paint does tiff,giff,jpg and even bmp so it's not that.
first off when moving photos off any camera made.
look to see what the file names are the extensions.
dm0101.tiff is TIFF.
dm0101.bmp is BMP.
the see if it is too big, many editors of photo can not do 50foot wide photos as some pro camera's can do. (CANON top brand)or NIKON.
the camera has settings mode, set it to JPG or PNG mode
and any editor can edit those.
my wild wild guess, next this name above is 3.5" extrernal USB flopy diskette reader
that say your relic 2000 year, SONY 3.5" camera created .
(yes they did that back in the day, )
and now you connect the 3.5" Sabrent and you can copy said
fails ok, but failed to note the full file names.
to see extensions you must tell nasty windows you want to.
yes windows is PAIN, in this one regard.
so you go to control panel.
click file explorer options.
then click VIEWS TAB.
then click and uncheck hide file exemptions. (leave OS extensions alone below)
after doing this great act (we do this step one new PC or OS)
we can see what kind of photo is for the first time.
then post that and we can edit anything
or get GIMP, for free for windows.
