I just bought a new windows 8 computer. I'm having trouble getting a lot of the apps to work properly. When I insert a SDalled a SD memory card into the computer the downloader app has all instructions in German. And it behaves much worse than my old Windows XP downloader did. Can anyone recommend a good English speaking downloader?

When faces with such challenges, I usually go to the web sites for the camera manufacturer.  (I'm assuming that you are talking about downloading images from your camera's memory card).

Yes I'm transferring photos from camera to PC. My Win XP machine I put SD card in the slot and a dialog opens to download pics. It let me specify file names. And a folder and let me flip horizontal to vertical. It worked great.

My new Win 8a dialog opens in German language. It doesnt let me specify file names or change orientation. This is part of windows. I hate this downloader. What are my options?

Like I said, all major camera manufacturers have their own download apps.  Check with them.

Did you install a stole, German version of Windows?

Did you install it with German as the default language?

Of course not. Every other app is in English. It is 1 of the shelf computer from Fry's Electronics. No pirated software involved.
