# Removing side captions from list of figures

How can I remove a side caption from a list of figures? I have been trying to use the following code:

\documentclass[12pt, a4paper]{book}
\usepackage[pdftex]{graphicx}
\usepackage{sidecap}
\begin{document}
\listoffigures
\begin{SCfigure}
\centering
\includegraphics[width=0.5\textwidth]{blank.jpg}
\caption*{Caption}
\end{SCfigure}
\end{document}


However, including an * within \caption*{Caption} does not seem to work. Rather, in the list of figures, it simply replaces the word 'Caption' with an asterix.

-

\caption* is provided by caption package. Add
\usepackage{caption}

@BrigalowDad: First of all, the version of your caption package is outdated. For a perfect cooperation with the sidecap package one need v3.1 or newer of the caption package. (\caption* will not work inside sideway captions when using version 3.0 of the caption package. Instead one will get the error message above.) Second, if you don't want a labeled caption, why do you use the sidecap package and \caption* at all? You could simply place your description beside the picture, without the need of both. – Axel Sommerfeldt Jul 2 '11 at 9:11
