Casio's ".cam" file extension is created by Casio digital cameras whenever a picture is taken using a Casio digital camera. This file must be opened by the Casio photo software instead of any other kind of photo viewing software, such as "Windows Picture and Fax Viewer." Converting the ".cam" file extension to the universal ".jpeg" extension allows it to be opened by many different kinds of photo viewing software, not just Casio's.

Step 4

Click the "Apply" button and then click the "OK" button to close the window and save the changes.

Step 5

Right-click the ".cam" file and click on the "Rename" option. By typing, replace the ".cam" file extension with the ".jpeg" extension.
