SD card incompatability with slide show frame

  collinsc 09:16 14 Dec 2007

My dad recently bought one of those small screens (not sure what they are called!) where you plug your USB stick/SD card in and it plays a picture slide show.

his camera is about 2 yrs old, and his sd card is not compatible with it. we are able to transfer pics to a USB stick, but ideally we want to be able to do this "on the go". is there anything i can do?

is there some kind of gadget which can transfer data between different SD card formats?

They are called Digital Photo Frames. Which model does he have?

Also, are you sure his camera card is SD or another type like XD/SM, CF/MD etc. From what I have seen on-line, most of these DigiFrames appear to be SD or MMC format.

im 99% sure its SD.

Is there any gadget available to be able to make this work?

You could certainly buy and XD card - if it fits your USB stick OK, in any case it will fit in any multi-card reader which means you could then manipulate pictures as required.

we already have the XD card in the camera. im asking... if i bu the item (see 'click here' can i insert the XD card in tha back of it? and then play the pictures from the XD card?

im 99% sure this is what the product does! but want to confirm...

Yes! you will be able to see the pics and manipulate them between cards as you wish. With the 4-in-1 card reader plugged into PC, each slot will appear as a separate Drive letter in your My Computer.
