I have Ver 5.0.0.0 running on a PC under Windows 2000

In[1]:= $ImportFormats

Out[1]= {AIFF, AU, BMP, CSV, DICOM, Dump, DXF, EPS, EPSI, EPSTIFF, 
Expression, \
               ExpressionML, FITS, GIF, HarwellBoeing, HDF, JPEG, Lines, 
List, MAT, MathML, \
               MGF, MPS, MTX, NB, NotebookML, PBM, PGM, PNG, PNM, PPM, 
SDTS, SND, STL, \
               SymbolicXML, Table, Text, TIFF, TSV, UnicodeText, WAV, 
Words, XBitmap, XML}
