How do I retrieve photos saved on a computer being replaced. This computer was damaged during an electrical storm and lost its internet connection. I can open the Canon ZoomBrowserEX file and photos ...but how can I save these files to a disk or to a cd. It does not give me the option of file save. There must be a way to save these....please help.

Hmm. I have no idea really. You might capture the screen somehow and create a new one. But that doesn't seem quite right :/

If the hard disk has not been damaged can be extracted of the damaged computer and be put in a new one, therefore the photos recover.
If the hard disk has been damaged, exist companies that take care to recover those damages. They are expensive, but it can be the only solution. :roll:
I recommend that you every so often do backups in CD a long time, adding new photos to the CD until completing it :bang:
I wish luck you

I just opened my Zoombrowser and was able to drag and drop the individual photos into another folder. Try that! :-D

You can also try copying the original files (burn them to a CD-R). The default folder should be something like:
C:\Program Files\Canon\Zoom Browser\Images\Image Folder
(I can double check the exact folder location later today when I get home from work.)

Depending on the computer and Operating System, if Windows, you should be able to go into explorer and just copy the data into a new folder of if the machine is mapped to another machine, you can copy to the other machine.
Good luck and keep us posted.

Zoombrowser regularly eats it's database file, thus losing all the glossy front end - the files are still on your disk in a directory, just the stuff that zoombrowser uses to display them is damaged... try using something like BreezeBrowser instead - it's much more reliable, smaller, faster, and works really well with Canon images...

You are so right, Stuart! Zoombrowser malfunctioned on both my PC and my laptop and I couldn't open it anymore. But I was able to move my files out of its folder and into another one. I also have a malfunctioning PhotoRecord program (came on G2 disk). I liked using PhotoRecord to lay out album pages and now it shuts down on me when I do an import of photos. Anyone else have this problem?

I still use PhotoRecord for putting together printed proofs for people to see, mini albums to send to my mum, etc... it's good on a high spec PC, but a real slug on a slower unit... have you installed the upgrade that's on the Canon website?? It's now available as a commercial stand alone product, which comes bundled free with some of the newest printers to add value to the package, as PhotoRecord Gold... The first version that came with my G2 used to crash if I imported a lot of shots at once, the fixed version seems very reliable...

Thank you for your help. It was a snap. Copied to a new file. burned onto cd and uploaded and printed a photo on another computer.
Thanks to all who replied.
