IE 6 doesn't recognize .jpg files?

By Jessie ·
OS: Windows 2000 (and all critical updates)
Application: IE 6 SP1

Error: "The file selected for upload is not of the correct format. Please choose a file of .gif or .jpg format."

The user is getting this message when trying to upload a .jpg file to an intranet page through a java script.

What I've tried:
* verified it works with these same files on other machines - not corrupted jpg
* uninstalled and reinstalled the image viewer and I.E.
* reassociate jpg files with internet explorer
* logon with different profile - it's not corrupt profile
* general system cleanup - no file corruption or temp file problems

Any Suggestions? It's not a critical issue as I can have the user complete the upload on another machine... but he's the PR rep for the site and really needs to be able to do these without taking away someone else's computer.

Try emptying your Temporqry Internet Files cache first.

As it turns out, the issue was more in the Java Script than any file issues. The Java Script that uploads the images, cannot handle capitalized extensions. It would upload img_10.jpg, but NOT img_10.JPG. Go figure. Thanks for your suggestions guys.
