Question about PANDIGITAL (DPF802) Digital Picture Frame
My fram has about 5,000 pictures loaded on it. When try to chnage the sequencing of the files via windows explore the files seem to get resequnced based on file name but when I disconnect the frame from the computer and turn it on it seems that the frame starts the slide show wit the picture that was added first. Then everytime the frame is turned off the slide show starts over wit the first picture loaded. The shuffle feature takes about 30 seconds to switch from picture to picture so I do not want to use that feature. I also seem yto get this message code displayed at the bottom left of the screen (which I do not think was there before) A08_05_06_PD_CPT08.
Any suggestions as to how to fix the picture sequence and to save the place the frame left off each time the fram is turned on?
The DPF-80 has now way to sequence pics. The only way for them to play in an order is add them one at a time to the frame via the computer. The files can not be batch sent, such as sending a whole folder at one time. Windows will dictate the order in which they are transfered if you do it that way. Transfer one pic at a time. Tedious, but it works

The nature of 16:9 basically means that you will be losing photo information in normally framed 4x5/5x7 photos. There is no way to fix this because the frame size of 16:9 is wider than 4x5/5x7. The options the frame offers are the only options to make your photos fit. Either crop, or distort.
The best solution is to keep this in mind when taking photos from now on and assume you will be cropping the top and bottom of the image.
As for the photos you have already taken, the only viable tactic to take is to reframe them for 16:9 yourself. You can download a free photo editing application like "GIMP" to do this. Create a new project that is 800x450 pixels. This will give you a 16:9 canvas. Next drag your existing photos into this canvas and move it around and resize it until you find a suitable framing for your picture.
Unfortunately it seems that as 16:9 solidifies itself as the new screen standard people are finding that shooting photos framed for 4:3 or in portrait dimensions are not translating well to this new standard. You may even want to consider returning this frame and looking for a 4:3 aspect ratio frame if cropping/resizing is not acceptable for you. Good luck!

I had the same problem on a 128 mb memory. I figured out that it can only load a certain # of objects/files. So I started from scratch, and I created a new folder in the pandigital and copied all the files/photos/mp3's into that 1 folder. Thus 1 object. I was able to fill the entire capacity after that. I can't believe I actually helped solve one! I hope it works for you...

the frame should show up in computer or "my computer" in start menu or on the desktop.
It will be named as "Removable storage device" inside The computer folder.
Double clicking on it will get to its contents, and you can copy pictures in there. Let me know what you see in there.
