I am trying to put in a SD Photo chip to see what is on it. The chip is not mine, a friends. Will I be able to view it with out soft ware? it is a Lexar 1 GB chip. when I put it in nothing happens, big zero. I have never tried a chip from my own camera as I use a USB cable to upload into my system. any help is appreciated. S
