When you plug the keyring into your computer swanny, do you get a menu coming up on the screen asking you what you want to do. It would give you a few options in a list.
If you dont, then after you have connected the keyring , go to "My computer" and click on there to see if you have an extra drive showing. If you have then this will be you keyring. It will show as a letter, the same way as your "C" drive does but will be a different letter.
If it does then you can go to your photos that you want on it and highlight them then go to the left of the screen and click on "copy". This will then bring up the list of drives you have and just pick the one that is your keyring.
Hope this helps you.

With the one I bought my mother at Xmas you had 3 buttons on the back of it, the middle one acted as the menu button and the button to turn it on.You press it when connected for about 3 secs and it comes up with a screen where you can see whats loaded already and can navigate to the photos you wish to use and upload them to the keyring. It did have a manual but was pretty vague to be honest. Don't know if yours is the same but its worth a try.

OK swanny, what you need to do is open "windows explorer". That way you will have the list on the left side of your screen with what you have on your computer. Things like ...documents...desktop and my computer. What you do is use that to go to the folder with the photos in and click on it. This will open in the main window.
Still on the left of screen click on "my computer" and you should see the list of drives that you have on the computer and the keyring one will be there as long as you have it pluged in.
Just drag and drop the photos you want from the main screen onto the letter for the keyring. that will load them onto it and leave the original in the main folder wherever you got it.
hope you understand my quick way of explaining.

when i do as u suggested i found pic then it opens my pics ,that window then covers the other window where im mweant dag an drop the pic so its impossible. sorry for sounding stupid but thats way it is . surely there can be a easier way do this . because any 1 buying a keyring photo frame id say NO hehe forget it.

Dont worry swanny.
Try going to "my documents" where you can see your pictures and try this.
Click on the photo you want then go to the left of screen and click on copy file.
Then when the little box opens find the letter that represents your keyring and click on that.
Then press ok.
Should work from there.

just make sure that the photos you want are not to big for the keyring memory,

Auto DPF mate F <<assuming this is my keyring.but i get no option too click OK. all i see is make new folder /copy/cancel i clicked on copy but it says Cannot copy Pic file on this CDRom drive read only ?
