Question about PANDIGITAL (DPF802) Digital Picture Frame

Open Question

I bought 2 Phillips 8ff2fpb 8'' frames and they're limited to 109

These frames appear limited to 108 pictures before they freeze on #109. This is either random or sequential. I tried two and they were identical. I've loaded a 1Gig SD card (formatted with FAT 32) with 599 pictures, about 650Mb, and I want to randomly see them all. Could it be the format? FAT format stopped me loading the card at around 70 pictures, but the FAT 32 enabled me to load them all.
It's a Phillips!!!!!

Your PhotoFrame does not have internal memory acording to the Phillips data sheet, therefore you need to load your pictures directly onto a memory card (one from your camera will proabably work.) If that isn't convenient, you can generally get a good price on a SD memory card which is supported by your PhotoFrame.

If you wnat to transfer pictures from your PC to the memory card and have a card reader, you can transfer the pictures in Windows Explorier from your PC to the memory card and then plug the card into your PhotoFrame. If you do not have a card reader, plug the memory card into the PhotoFrame and connect it to your PC using a USB cable (you may have to buy one as acording to the Phillips data sheet it is not supplied.) When the PhotoFrame is pluged in it will appear in Windows Explorier as a new hard drive, and you can copy your pictures to it.

I hope this helps,

Mike

I have a smartparts picture frame.SP113mw Just loaded new pictures and first pic comes up and freezes, tried re-connecting to computer nothing. Can't use any of the buttons its locked up and can't...


The first (most obvious?) solution is to discard/destroy/disable/discombobulate the SP113MW. For my Mother-in-Law, I just deleted some of her images from built-in flash.

The SP113MW has a 128 mB flash drive that is accessible by USB, per previous suggestions. HOWEVER, the probable reason that your frame freezes on startup is that you have more than 744 images in the "Smartparts Pictures" folder on the built-in flash memory.

The SP113MW has a maximum limit of 744 images for a slideshow rotation, regardless of how much space is on the drive (that includes Built-in flash, USB, SD, or any of the drives). The default drive on startup is the built-in flash, so you may just have to delete some images to get under the 744 limit. FORGET the manufacturer's claim of "2000 images" (because it is technically correct); you can store 2000, but you'll never play a slideshow of 2000 (nor any slideshow if you have that many images). Reduce to 744 (all jpg's) and all will be well.

The other irritating thing about the SP113MW is that it does not allow the slideshow to include all drives: just one drive at a time, and that drive cannot have more than 744 images on it (or the slideshow freezes). That is why your comment about "trash" may not be a bad idea. However, mine Mother-in-Law's still works, so I accepted the limit, and it still sits on her shelf.

I'm told the directory or file canot be created when I try to drag a picture to the pandigital folder even though I've already copied about a 100 images using the same method.


I have a Pandigital too and although I don't think the users guide mentions it (major oversight on their part), the root directory on this thing can only hold a limited # of files/folders (mine is limited to 108) If I understant it correctly, it's due to the fact that the pandigital uses a FAT (file allocation table) storage method - not that the reason matters. The solution is: make folders in the root directory (you could have up to 108 folders on my pandigital) and I believe each subfolder can have an unlimited number of files in it. I just call my subfolders "Dec 2009 additions, Jan 2010 additions, etc). The Pandigital will randomly cycle thru files in each of these subfolders just as if they were in the root directory. Hope this helps.

Cant copy any pictures from computer


You can start copying pictures to SV811 digital picture frame if you get the message “Use PC interface to copy files.” Here are the steps:
Copy pictures, videos, and music between your frame and computer, using your computer's normal file copying tools:

1. Connect the USB cable from the frame to your computer
2. On your computer, open My Computer or Windows Explorer.

The picture frame appears as removable drives—one drive for each connected picture source in the frame, in this order: internal memory, memory cards, and USB devices.

3. Navigate to the pictures you want to copy. Then drag and drop them to the new location.
4. Unplug the USB cable to view your copied pictures.

Copying pictures from EasyShare software:


1. Install EasyShare software (free download at www.kodak.com/go/sw )
2. Connect the USB cable.
3. On your computer, open EasyShare software. Select the pictures in My Collection and drag them into the Picture tray.
4. In the menu bar, select File and then Copy to the Kodak Drive letter.

The picture frame appears as removable drives—one drive for each connected picture source in the frame, in this order: internal memory, memory cards, and USB devices.

5. Select the frame source to which you are copying.
6. Select Best for Digital Picture Frame to reduce the resolution of the pictures you are copying. Full resolution is unnecessary and quickly fills up the frame's memory.
7. Click Copy. Pictures are copied to your frame.
8. Unplug the USB cable and press “Home” icon to navigate to your copied pictures.

Phillips Photo Frame does not recognize SanDisk 1 BG SD card


I used a format program from http://www.sdcard.org/consumers/formatter/eula/
Nether Sandisk nor Phillips tells you the card needs to be formatted FIRST if it is
new and out of the package. It works fine now.......... in the Phillips Photo Frame model 8FF2FPB

If you do not format it first - your PC software WILL NOT even know it is inserted into your device!!

I need no further help on this
