Hello!

Microsoft has an add-on program that will allow you to view RAW images along with others in the Windows image and fax viewer. This allows you to see RAW files in folder without opening any programs. Hope all find this useful.

Unfortunately, they haven't updated it in awhile to read some of the newer cameras' RAW files (for Canon I think 5D, 20D, 350D). It was nice to be able to quickly look at a thumbnails in Windows Explorer instead of having to fire up Adobe Bridge or another program to view the thumbnails.

For my 20D it worked, but i removed it because I didnt like it. I normally shoot RAW + small JPG, so I couldnt see the difference between them any more.

Hmm, I thought the last and only upgrade to RAW viewer covered only the 5D, 350D, and 20D. I've been out of luck with my 400D and now 40D...
