If you use ZoomBrowser EX 4 without performing this conversion, the titles, comments, and sound annotation information added in previous versions will be LOST.

ZoomBrowser EX 4 is designed not to display folders under Program Files, so ZoomBrowser EX 4 cannot read any images that may have been saved in the Image Library One folder (the default behavior in ZoomBrowser EX 2.x/3.x). In order to view these files, please use Explorer to move them from C:\Program Files\Canon\ZoomBrowserEX\Image Library One to some other location outside of the Program Files directory, such as My Pictures. After doing so, the images will be displayed in ZoomBrowser EX 4.
: Be sure to move these files after converting the database files as described above.
C. RAW Image Converter 1.x cannot be started from within ZoomBrowser EX 4. Plese start RAW Image Converter from the Start menu when converting RAW images.
