    Windows XP RAW Viewer

    Does anyone know of a program that will let me view RAW files from my a580 in Windows Explorer in XP Home? I have Arcsoft Raw Thumbnail Viewer but it doesn't work with the 580, apparently.

    Thanks for your help,
    Bob

    You could try Picassa it opens my Olympus RAW files, maybe it will work for you. At least it's free so it wont cost you anything to try.
    Around every picture there's a corner & round every corner there's a picture
    - the fun's in finding them

    Thanks for your reply. I was looking for something that would show thumbnails of the RAW files in windows explorer. Is that what Picassa does with your Oly files?

    I suspect that the only way to do this in the way you would like is to upgrade to W7 (orVista).
    You can then use the Sony RAW driver to do what you want.
    I don't think a driver was ever made for XP and they are unlikely to do it retrospectively.
