Why won't my dentist give me copies of my digital x-rays?

Can anyone think of a good reason why my dentist can't (won't) provide me with copies of the digital radiographs of my teeth? They say they can provide copies, but I've seen what copies of their digital pix look like and they're awful. The digital pix are just files on a laptop - why can't they copy them to a flash card? I even offered to provide the card. You would think paying $3,000.00 worth of dental work would be enough to cover copies of digital pictures? I don't want to cause problems with my dentist as he is my son's dentist as well and don't want to rock the boat unless it's absolutely necessary. So, I thought maybe a MeFite might have a logical explanation that I'm just missing. Thanks!
