We had one of these devices (a Sony) for Christmas and have managed to get it set up so that it will show photos which have been put on to the internal storage system. However, supplied with it was a card that fits in to one of the available slots.
This is great, but how do I get photos on to the card? I do have a card reader which should be fitted internally in my computer, but I am loathe to jigger the case up when I try to install it. (It seems to be deeper than the slot but not as wide as the slot it is supposed to fit in!)
The obvious thing to do is to buy a separate external card reader, which are quite cheap, but will I be able to transfer photos to the card through an external reader? Or does it just read a card that is already loaded, i.e. straight out of the camera?
That is my point, does a card reader, which are only a few pounds from the likes of Amazon, allow pictures to be loaded on to a card, or does it just read? Is there a special one that reads and writes, or do they all read and write? The ones I have looked at appear to only read, but that maybe because the write ups are a bit short on overall descriptions!!
Yes it does allow adding to and removing pics etc, from cards while attached to a PC - treats the card just like any other drive, that is why when you connect a card reader to a PC, all the slots on it appear in My Computer, with letters, just like drives.
Many thanks for your information. It will be the best thing to do to buy an external card reader and then transfer the pictures to the card via the reader. It is interesting that the card in the Photo Frame cannot be added to via the frame. It doesn't seem to call the card a different drive, whereas the frame is classed as my G: drive.
I do connect the Frame to the computer via the USB cable. This is what it says in the Handbook. But yesterday when I was trying to get pictures on to the card, it would not do it. It added the pictures to the internal storage system in the Frame. (The G: Drive.)
However, I have just realised that my Epson R300 Printer has a card reader and I stuck the card in there and dragged and dropped pictures on to it with no problem!! I have never used the Epson for this sort of work ever since I had it about 4 years ago!!
