Tip & How-To about Polaroid IDF-1030 (826219006783) Digital Picture Frame

Polaroid IDF-1030 Digital Picture Frame - Slideshow with Music

The manual for the Polaroid IDF-1030 is ridiculously simple and not very helpful. There's actually more information on the outside of the box.
One of the features that is not intuitively easy to figure out is how to get the frame to display a picture slideshow AND play music at the same time. The remote is the only way that you can set this up. 
First, on your computer, create a folder for the images and a folder for the music. If you put music in the images folder, your slideshow will stop at the first music file it finds and just display the music player's equalizer interface. This is very boring. 
Note on the pictures.. spend a little time and reduce the size of your pictures to 640 x 480 pixels. Dealing with large files on the photo frame is painfully slow.
Images should be in JPEG (.jpg) format although it will also display .gif files. Music should be MPEG (.mp3) format.
Copy these folders to the root of your memory card.
Put the memory card in the Polaroid frame card slot and turn it on. 
Use the remote and press the STOp button if it automatically starts displaying the pictures. 
Press the MUSIC button and select the REPEAT button until you see REPEAT ALL at the bottom of the screen.

Press the PLAY/PAUSE to start the music, then immediately press the SLIDESHOW button to start the slideshow with music.
I hope this helps some of you who had trouble with this.

Polaroid Digital Frame Model XSA-01140B freezes up


I was using an 8G flash drive and had over 6G saved to it. I decided that maybe the frame could not handle that many G's so I deleted everything but 2G and it WORKS!!!!! Maybe anything over 2G is too much for it to handle. Try it and let me know. I am interested if this solves everyones problems.
