Hi there,

I hava some trouble with Mathematica 4 image import. Usually one should 
import an image with:

myImage = Import["image.jpg"]

The image is a valid jpg and can be found via $Path. 

But Mathematica can't load it. Wenn I  type


I get


as the answer. This should be something like

{"AIFF", "AU", "BMP", "Dump", "EPS", "EPSI", "EPSTIFF", "Expression", 
"GIF", "HDF", "JPEG", "Lines", "List", "MAT", "MGF", "MPS", "PBM", "PGM", 
"PNM", "PPM", "PSImage", "RawBitmap", "SND", "Table", "Text", "TIFF", 
"UnicodeText", "WAV", "Words", "XBitmap"}

I guess. The help says these formats should be build in. So why they aren't 

Thanks in advise
