Transferring pictures from PC to digital frame

  BingoBoy 14:52 28 Jan 2008

I have a Living Images digital photoframe with a 128mb memory and need advice on transferring pictures out of my PC into the memory of the frame. I thought I had it sussed as initially I managed to drag and drop a small number into the frame. However, I spent the best part of 2 hours sorting through my many photo files selecting the ones I wanted to transfer across only for them not to appear when I viewed the pictures via the photoframe. The method I followed was connect via USB port and various new drives appeared E: to K: on my PC. The E: drive contained the original pictures that I had managed to transfer across so I deleted them from this drive and proceeded to select the individual photos en mass then copied them into the E: by right clicking on the mouse and using send to function selecting E: having trawled through various files and transferred in the region of 75 photos into the E: I could view all of them via the PC. So having shut down the USB connection using the Safely Remove Hardware tab I then went to view the frame itself but none of the photos had moved across. The only thing I could find was the original titles of the photos that were in the frame but which were now empty. I sem to be missing some sort of step to effectively synch what is in my PC with the frame. Any suggestions? The manual is no help by the way.

If the frame takes SD cards and you have a card reader on your PC I suggest you keep a folder on the PC with the photos you want on the frame, copy them to the SD card (or other temporary storage, such as a usb pen) and then you can change them if you wish.

Yes. Use an SD card and as suggested earlier copy from your computer to a SD card via a usb card reader.

That is the way to go - acquire a memory card- but of course you will need a card reader.
But you do have USB so a memory stick will do
The images to not have to be 'Loaded'
The device should 'Feed' from the inserted media.
So in My pictures create a folder and name it -picture frame- In to the frame copy the images you wish to view- If you desire a 'running' order you will have to number the images -[Right click /rename/ number using 3 digit format - 001 002 003 etc.,- these are copy files so will not affect the originals] this will give a running order.
Good viewing.
