Vu-Me photo ball error message Photo Viewer Data Synchronize failed

I selected the photos I want to download onto my new VuMe photo ball using the Photo Viewer software; however, when I click download, I get the error message "Photo Viewer Data Synchronize failed!" My computer system is compatible with the requirements listed on the product's owner's manual.

    Same here, VU ME downloaded 16 of 71 photos and crapped out. Can the photos be deleted from the ball and re-installed??

    I just purchased on and I am getting an error message as well. It also shows the Vu-Me as a 2MB drive (weird).

    I'm stuck.

    I installed the software provided for the Vu-me cube and still couldn't view the photos but I found when you connect the cube into your USB port and turn on the cube a menu pops up giving you the choice to "Run the program using the progam provided on the device" you need to select this and then another version of Photo Viewer opens. You then select the photos you want downloaded from the file icon and then select the dotted rectangle to select your region within the photo, then select the arrow this will move your photo over to the right window, you then select the circle icon on the right this will synchronize the photo. In order to view the photo you will have to disconnect the cube from your USB plug and ta da you can see the photo. It will also let you know how many photos you've uploaded to your cube and how many more you can copy. It's pretty cool after you figure this all out, hope it works for you. :)

Wicked! Got it working.

I had the same issue as described by the other posts. I run Windows Vista. I suspect the others are experiencing the same error message and are also running Vista.

Short Version of the Solution: You must run the Photo Viewer program as an administrator.

To do this:

  1. Close the program if it is open
  2. Right click on the program icon
  3. Select "Run as Administrator" - Yes you have to do this even if you are already logged into the PC with administrator privledges.
  4. You will be prompted to Cancel or Allow - Select "Allow"
It will now work.

Note: You may be asked for the administrator password if you are not logged into the machine as an an adminstrator already.

Hope this helps someone out there!

You don't need to format at all...cancel out of that...find your photoviewer program and run as admin. once you are in the interface nav to you pics folder. click on an image then click the right blue arrow on the bottom. now CLICK DOWNLOAD.. wait this takes a few.. once download is complete click the save button. Now you have pics on the ball :D

I have a photo that is 5164x2905 dimensions, 5164 pixels width, 2905 pixels in height and I am trying to resize to 8x10 photo. I don't know what to change those numbers too to equal an 8x10??

Hi Brittany,
The Term "Pixels" in Digital Photography refers to the Resolution of the picture meaning how sharp,crisp or clear the picture is.
As far as resizing it, take it to a photo shop ( Walgreens, CVS, K-mart, Walmart, etc...) and tell them you want an 8X10 & they will print it for you.
Also if you want lower resolution pictures, you can go to Settings on your phone to adjust it. The higher the resolution the better the pictures look but the more memory they use on the phone.
Here is a link to your phone manual:
Good Luck

How to recover deleted pictures from memory stick

There is some free (for home use) software called "Recuva" that you can use to do this. It will look for any files that can be recovered. Provided the card has not been used since the files were deleted the files should be recoverable.

You can find the software here:

Or you can search yourself for "recuva" in Google. It will be the first unsponsored link in the list of results.

You need to insert the card into the computer that has recuva on it and then select the correct drive letter in the software and then scan for deleted files.

Good luck.

How to put photos onto flash drive?

If you are using a Windows Computer, when you plug in the flash drive into USB port, you should get a message on the screen that says that you have installed a new removable drive. It will ask you what you want do next and one of the options would be to copy your photos. Note which drive letter the new drive is using - if you want to copy files manually, open My Documents, select My Computer on the left side panel, and select the drive that matches your Fllash Drive. When it opens, you can open. A second window to the location where your photos are, and then just copy and paste, or drag and drop between the two windows.

This is a photo flash forum for Nikon cameras. Not a computer problem forum. You have to access your photos where the computer stored them. Usually windows stores all photos under My Documents, and subbed under 'My Pictures"
