|I use the picture down load facility of windows - its simple. It just transfers the files - I have two PC's, one with Vista and the other Windows 7.
They both work in exactly the same way.
It does sound like the problem is at the camera end and not the PC.
I have also copied some files direct from the CF card while still in the camera via "my computer" and that was the same.
I only shoot Raw and do not shoot JPEGs.
Have you tries each of the three options on the menu for auto rotate and see what each one actually does?

|Maybe a silly question but are you using a Canon lens with your camera?
I shoot with panasonics and so long as I use a panasonic lens, Lightroom auto rotates them. If I use say an Olympus lens, I have to do it manually in Lightroom once imported.
You may have the same problem if you are using eg a sigma lens on a Canon body.

Quote from Ken_Smith
I'm guessing from personal experience that rotating in Microsoft viewer, or other viewers like ACDSee, only changes the flag which is not recognised in some applications. However, if you rotate the image in Photoshop for example, it actually rebuilds the image in the correct orientation without changing the flag so the image will display correctly everywhere...
This is pretty much what I have found also, at least with ACDSee. To confuse matters further, I've found some applications like that are displaying the embedded JPG (if there is one) rather than trying to render the raw data, and these can also get out of sync - either because of genuine rotations, or changes in their orientatiomn flags, and sometimes even you can have "compensating" differences which gets very baffling. It ends up like a game of cat and mouse with you thinking you're rotating it in a certain fashion to correct the error, and now in another application (or when the eventual JPG is viewed on the web) it's screwed up.
It sounds like a similar thing is happening with the microsoft app. My preferred approach is to use allow Adobe Camera Raw to render a viewable image (with the desired settings) which is then opened in Photoshop, and (after any tweaks that you want to do in Photoshop, which in some case is no more than resize and unsharp mask for instance) it gets "Save For Web"d as a JPG. This JPG will be genuinely rotated, i.e. with the actual image data modified accordingly, and orientation flags will not be part of the equation this way so the JPG will behave as expected wherever it is viewed, including by a browser. Also if it gets uploaded to an image hosting service that might try to guess what to do depending on the orientation flag, there is now less cfhance of a cockup in their process, too!
If I've got a bunch of raw files (in my case, they'd actually be DNG files, but the principle is the same) and want to create JPGs, my workflow is like this:
1. (Optional but convenient: ) Browse the group of raw files in Adobe bridge.
2, Open each one in turn in Adobe Camera Raw, making the various choices of develop settings and clicking Done. In the case of my DNG files, this stores the desired setting as metadata in the DNG files; in the case of raw files it will create a bunch of XMP sidecar files.
3. In Photoshop, use File : Automate : Batch and run an action on my raw files. The action (which I will have prepared earlier) in my case usually just resizes the file to my "standard" size, applies unsharp mask, adds a text logo, does a "Save for Web" as a JPG in an appropriate folder on my disk, with an sRGB conversion, and close the Document (without saving).
After running the automated batch, I'll now have a bunch of JPGs that reflect all the choices and tweaks made and will all be orientated for real without employing the orientation flag.
