#4. "RE: Making PhotoMechanic the default import program on Windows" In response to In response to 3
I see that in Windows 7 there is no choice for card storage, only "pictures". Be sure that you clicked "Save" at the bottom when you hit the choice for Photo Mechanic. Also, in Photo Mechanic 5, under the top, edit, preferences, general, be sure you selected "show ingest dialog" under "on mount of camera disks" and then "apply" to save it.
Winston Hall, a Nikonians class instructor, has told me in several classes that one should use a card reader to ingest rather than the camera directly. So I always use a Lexar usb 3.0 card reader every time, to get my images onto my computers.
