    When pluf my CF card into a USB dock and explore what's on it for each
    CRW (raw) file I also get a small (appx 9k) file of the sname name but
    the type .THM (which could sound like "thumbnail.")

    What is this ?

    For what ? I can't see that any of my PC software, or XP, recognize
    the file type.

    Is it the image that the 300D shows on it's LCD display ?

    Thanks

    Yes it is, and if you rename it to a .jpg you'll find that it IS a JPEG,
    albeit a tiny one.

    Easy solution is to just use the File Type option to get whatever
    program you use to read .jpg files to read .thm too.
