    Hi all,
    since I bought my lovely camera one year ago I have been using play memories home
    -to view my photos (I like that it also previews "correctly" my raw files)
    -import photos from camera.

    I am very satisfied with that but after the last upgrade some time ago it keeps crashing with the message "Browser is not responding"

    I have been googling to find a solution but it turned out that I am spending more and more time without fixing it. I have tried installing it and reinstalling it but still nothing.

    One way to solve this fast is to find an alternative and start using it.
    What are the features I am looking at are:

    1. Import files from the sd cardinto folders with the same structure as my playmemories was doing (It would be nice to offer two choices a. import new files. b. select which files to import)
    2. preview of raw files
    3. calendar view so to be able to browse through my shoots. Have to admit that is a bit relaxing to scroll during my photos in calendar view.

    Do you know any replacements for playmemories home?

    I would like to thank you in advance for your reply

    It didn't work on my Win8 computer either. In the end I just uninstalled it... there is a plug-and-play downloader off the camera that is perfectly workable, if bare bones (it doesn't even rotate photos).
