  • SD & the MicroExplorer

    Will an SD card used in the MicroExplorer be compatible with most Windows based computers?

    Could you give the card to a client without any special formatting or problems?

    Video would just play in standard Windows Media Player?

    Pictures would easily be displayed with the standard Windows viewer?

    Thanks.

    I don't recall needing anything other than Windows to open videos and photos.

      an sd card is pretty much the same as all the other media cards. if they have a card reader, they can easily read the files. sd is much more common than the xd i have for my olympus camera.

        yes compatible with windows

        yes would not need special formatting but needs an SD card slot in either the laptop or the pc, either a card slot or a card reader that you attach to the laptop/pc using a USB connection.

        yes, mediaplayer plays avi:

        Audio Visual Interleave (.avi)
        Versions of Windows Media Player that support this file type:
        • Windows Media Player 7
        • Windows Media Player for Windows XP
        • Windows Media Player 9 Series
        • Windows Media Player 10
        • Windows Media Player 11
        yes, jpg images displayed easily using mspaint, picture manager, even internet explorer

          Only partially correct here. There are many flavors of .AVI video that do NOT play natively in Windows (MP4 comes to mind) without downloading a CODEC first.

            ^that is correct. the microexplorer is standard avi though i believe, and should play in standard windows media player.

              the microEXPLORER writes MJPEG (Motion Jpeg) in an AVI Format. It can be easily viewed with any standard player on your operating system.

                Don't we all wish there were such a thing as "standard .AVI".

                There isn't and that's why MediaPlayer tries to go looking for CODEC's when it encounters a FOURCC code in an .AVI that it doesn't understand.

                After doing a little checking, it appears that the version of QUARTZ.DLL in WinXP knows how to decompress MJPEG.

                That was NOT the case in W2000.
