I am in a trip and want to see (not transfer) my pictures in a public computer Windows version.
I could not find a way to see pictures from my Canon Rebel XT in a hotel computer.
At home I have Canon software installed but not in the hotel.
Is it possible or not ?
Yes you can see your photographs but you will need a card reader to place your SD card into. Then you probably will have to ask the Hotel for permission to allow your card reader to be plugged into their system. Once you are allowed, sit down and watch you days shooting
Thanks guys, but my Canon use a Compact Flash and I am connecting the USB cable from camera directly to a computer.
I saw other people connecting their video camera into the same computer and it worked.
Any other idea?
SD Card, Compact Flash, makes no difference, a card reader will read them.
To get your camera to be read by the computer, you just connect the USB lead and windows will automatcally install the software but knowing Hotels that will be switched off because of the risk of a virus. Talk to the Hotel, most will allow a card reader but not the camera.
I am using my camera set to JPEG.
I agree with everyone else, unless the hotel has blocked the USB drivers for security, you should be able to view them on the WIndows picture viewer.
I always carry the AV cable with me, Canon 40D. As Glenn P. said yesterday most hotels have flat screens that have an AV input and since you shoot JPEG that would be the easiest way.
