Default XNA doesn't detect .jpg file?

I installed the XNA game studio (2.0) for Visual Studio 2005. I am simply trying to get it to load the CityGroundSmall.jpg and recognize it so I see the Properties that the author describes in the book. He makes brief mention "Normally, you would just see the build action and some options for copying the content file to the output directory ..." ... "But if XNA Studio detects one of the supported content file formats, you will see the advanced XNA properties..."

Guess what? I don't see the advanced XNA properties... lol.

He makes no mention of what could be causing it if you DONT see these properties.

Any ideas?

JPB, Software Engineer

Default

don't just add it to the project in solution manager, you need to drag it in the "content" menu of the project in solution manager.

Then you should be set, i was thinking it was perhaps a small error on the authors part but i've come to the conclusion it's the difference between XNA 1.0 and 2.0. Me and you are 2.0.

Now to make the pong menu work :)
