RE: Photo Gallery not showing my pictures
Prompted by your post I have just discovered that Windows Vista (home premium
32 bit) now ignores an SD card inserted in the reader (whatever option is
selected in autoplay).

With the SD card inserted select "Computer" from Start menu;
select drive F and click on relevant folder(s). The photo files (usually the
..jpg extension) will be listed. Click any file to open WPG. Right click any
file and click properties to check the extension is .jpg and change the
opening program to WPG if not already so.
