Hi all,

I have used gdal before (very briefly) to translate gebco bathemetry data
from the netcdf file it comes as, into a tif format that I can use/ further
convert in esri arcgis software. When I used gdal before (on another system)
I used the osgeo4w windows version on 64bit vista, and simply typed in the
command 'gdal_translate -a_srs EPSG:4326 filename.nc' at the command prompt.
This worked well. I now need to repeat the process, this time using osgeo4w
on 64bit windows 7.

The problem I am having is that this no longer seems to work. I go to the
osgeo4w command prompt, type in the above with the appropriate file name and
nothing happens. I just get the standard dos message regarding the usage of
the tool. Gdalinfo works ok. I do not believe that I am typing anything
incorrectly. Does anyone know if the issue is associated with my change of
OS? Should there be entries for osgeo4w or gdal in environment variables,
because there doesn't seem to be any at present. Any suggestions
