Technical Glitch

Every computer I've managed to get ahold of in the last week has been used in an attempt to upload more photos to both Facebook and to my blog. I know there are plenty of people checking both sites to keep abreast of what's going on with my travels. I've been frustrated with Facebook being really "buggy" before and it taking multiple (I'm talking in the neighborhood of 100 tries in Beijing) attempts to upload all my photos. And I was trying to do the same in Siam Reap, although it seems the computer at our hotel had different plans for me. It seems to have added a virus to my camera's memory card. And while that has not stopped me from taking new photos, it has put the kibosh on me uploading ANYTHING. Which is exceedingly frustrating, as I took almost 300 photos of all the temples we visited around Angkor Wat. Not that I'd bore you with all of them, but its been a while since I was able to post anything. I managed a one-off post of me and David in front of Angkor Wat at sunset and it seems that will be the last photo I post until I get this issue resolved.

I know I have some "techie" friends out there who may be able to help me out. Here's what's happening. I browse for photos to upload on Facebook's photo album page and select the folder where my photos are being stored. Instead of going to the subfolder and then to all of my photos, it attempts to upload the DCIM.exe folder. The last few computers have given me a warning about a threat being found (Object - C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache\autorun.inf; Threat - Win32/Autorun.NAE virus). I can still see all my photos on the computer when I open the folder and on my camera in the review setting, I just can't do anything else with them. Any thoughts and help would be much appreciated!!


  1. How about loading to Flickr? And if you want/need to stream Flickr into FB you could use one of the FB apps

    I'm using FB's "my flickr" but it's sorta buggy

  2. Katie, how about emailing your cousin? With all his experience in production of movies and pictures, he seems like someone who would know what to do?
