    this one has me confused, I am trying to download pictures, doesn't matter what site they are from, I save them as bmp, which is one of two options it gives me the other being ART, but it saves on my hard drive as jpeg and it will not open with anything, Stuck on this, any help grateful

    I had a similar problem, I could only saves pics as bmp and gifs wouldnt animate, my solution was to reformat and put back on win2k pro.
     
  7. try saving as all files then put the name of the pic in " "

    like this "example.bmp" I dont think it matters actually if the drop down box is all files or not the " should sort it

    only gives ART AND BMP Options, always defended XP to my friends, but getting sick of these little niggles, tryed my old pc with 98 on it and they download straight away, so its 100% an XP Fault
