Thank you very much, Rense.

See. I could get creative if I allow myself to use the current PC, and probably will get those old photos back. Unfortunately, if I play with the cables I'm sure I won't be able to put them back again.

I kindda like KJ's suggestion(s), in that to access the data without using the current setup. Sort of an independent/stand alone solution, if you will.

take photo's before you play with cables, print the photo's and there is nothing that can go wrong.

If you can plug a lens in a body, you can cable a PC to monitor. It only really fits one way.

You're going to have to work a little for this. Or hire it out. But don't keep stringing people along when you've had a number of good, valid solutions here.

Did I "string" you along?

Would appreciate it if you can ignore this thread, Mr. Austin.

aam1234,
the post will not be deleted, because brian is right, you should have stated in advance that you don't want to do any tinkering, even not as simple as tempory plugin a cable from one socket to the other socket that is dead easy.
In that way I didn't need to put up my advice, where in the end you are not acting upon.
