Note to IE Users: If camera files are opening as text in your browser, you can cause them to instead download with an option to save as a file by associating .icd files in Windows to open in a program like Notepad. This will save you from having to copy text in the browser and manually create and save the file. Here are instructions to do this:
  • create a text file on your desktop and rename it to have the .icd extension (you may be alerted about the file type - just click Yes to continue)
  • right-click on your new file, select Open, and choose the option to "Select from a list of programs"
  • choose Notepad from the list of programs, select the option to "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file", and open the file
  • Windows will now associate that file type with Notepad, and clicking Camera File links will download and save as desired
