I have several pictures downloaded from a compact flash card to my computer. I tried to access these *.jpg and *.tiff files but cannot. I tried to use Adobe Elements 2.0 and it told me to go to properties in windows explorer to unlock the files. I have tried to go to the properties/options in windows explorer but to no avail.

Any suggestions?

Hmmm....the first thing that comes to mind is that they might be downloaded into a folder that you don't have permissions for (happened to me more than once :thumbsup: ). Try downloading them into a different folder (create a folder right on your C: drive and copy the images from the card to that folder.

Also, make sure that your camera isn't protecting the images. I've heard of cameras that can "lock" or "protect" the images on a card so that only a single user can access it. Chances of this actually being the problem is slim to none though...just thought I'd throw it out there in an attempt to help!

Lastly, make sure that you are logged on with full rights to the computer (administrator account). Sometimes (like on my work machine) accounts that don't have administrative permissions are very limited to what they can do. For instance, I can't open up certain files/folders, I can't download anything from the internet, nor can I install or uninstall anything at all....not even the yahoo toolbar because I don't have permission to use the "Add or Remove programs".

Hope this helps!

Maybe the image is a read only?

Right click>properties to fix that :thumbsup:
