I have found that I can connect my Canon Powershot camera to my TV via the supplied lead and display the captured images. I removed the memory card and copied pictures stored on my PC but found that they would not display on the camera (or TV). Presumably essential picture information is lost when transferred to PC - is there a cheap, practical way to display pictures on a TV. My TV will not accept a flash drive and I do not want to burn images to a CD and display via a DVD player each time I want to show a few pictures. I understand that Sandisk marketed a cheap device but it seems to be no longer available.
Have copy/pasted onto the card and put the card into a reader, from where I was able to display the pictures on the computer, so they are there OK. I have been told that pictures taken on a camera are held in an index within the camera until deleted, and that pictures added from "outside" are not within that index, so cannot be displayed. It seems that the options are either using a dvd player or a digital photo viewer, which has a remote control and takes a variety of cards, such as the Panasonic, which is too expensive at over £100.
I use one of these. click here Probably available cheaper elsewhere. I have a whole load of photos and holiday slideshows copied and pasted from PC to an 8gig usb stick. Also a large part of my music onto another. my WD is version 1. The new version is WDTVLive which can connect to the internet. Connects to TV via HDMI cable.
Are Jpeg with added info which makes them into EXIF files. When downloaded into a PC directly Windows will 'strip off' this extra. The camaras cannot then read the 'plain' jpeg files. There are ways around this - some Image editors will add a 'dummy' to the file to fool the camara card, A bit of Googling will turn up EXIF data and some free downloads try
