    Hi sethm1,

    We have discovered that Nod 32 is incompatible with the Eye-Fi Manager software. The only thing we have found that works is completely removing (uninstalling) Nod 32 from the system if you want to use an Eye-Fi Card on an XP system.

    Larry -
    Then what does Eye-fi suggest as a replacement for Nod 32?
    I have the Smart Security Suite - not the basic Anti-Virus version - so is the recommendation the same?
    What exactly are the incompatibilities of Eye-Fi & Nod 32? In other words, what quirky things can I expect to happen - OR not happen?

    Since Eye-Fi did not test with all AV products, seems that Eye-fi jumped a bit by releasing it too soon.

    Will Eye-Fi reimburse me for the cost of the Eset software? Seems the right thing to do.

    That pretty much knocks out the two best A/V products.

    I was going to purchase an Eye-Fi memory card for my camera, but certainly won't give up NOD32 for it. :thumbd:

    I won't give up Nod 32 either-

    But- so far this card is playing nice with my PC. The only issue I had was that I initially could not set up an account on my PC (again, I have Eset Smart Security version- anti spam ,etc so no just the basic A/V), So I set up the account on my Son's. Then went back to my PC entered my account name & password and viola (?) I was able to send a photo from my camera to my PC.

    OH, and my son as the free AVG version!

    Hmmm - mind over matter? - I say this as I have the 2 A/V's that Eye-Fi says could cause trouble though I did NOT know until after I purchased the card.

    It'd be interesiting to know whether disabling the firewall makes a difference. If so, please enable logging blocked connections, try to replicate the problem and then check the firewall log for details about the connection attempts that have actually been blocked.

    Eset's ESS V4 is available in beta. This IS compatible with Eye-fi.
