Where are you saving them from? IE? It could be your File Options are set to hide extensions (which it does by default) and not show hidden files (which it too does be default) Have you tried saving them to the root directory and just opening a command prompt and do a DIR?

My system has recently started doing the same thing, lord. I'm running XP Pro and AOL 7. The problem is with AOL 7. I run a different browser, like MyIE, and save images with no problem. I cannot save the same image thru the AOL browser because it's only allowing ,ART (a totally useless Microsoft file format since NOTHING can read it) and .bmp file extensions, which are useless for jpegs.
It would not surprise me to discover this is a result of AOL's continued tampering with our systems and software.

UPDATE:
I just had a friend running AOL 7 and Windows ME save and open A pic I cannot. She did it with no problem. So this is a definate XP & 7.0 bug.

For some stupid reason...AOL converts all images to ART files.. and they are saved as such on your HD.

You can turn this off in the Options of Internet explorer, and AOL for that matter... but I am not too sure where the actual option is... been a long time since I ditched AOHell. I think the option is some thing like 'Do not compress/convert graphics'.. it has a check box to tick. All graphics you save will remain their own filetype then.

Hi, I am new to the forum.
As to your problem, in Aol, go too settings/ perferences/ Internet properties(WWW)/ Web Graphic Tab/ click on Never Compress Graphics
When you have Compress Graphic ticked, all your Images are saved as BMP or Art file so that web pages load faster. With it uncompressed pages might take a little longer to load.
Hope that helps!

Have a Great Day!
