Re: Phillips Photo Frame does not recognize SanDisk 1 BG...
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!!

Yes. Connect one of the sd cards to a computer and drag the photo onto your desktop. Now connect the second card and drag the photo onto the second sd card so that both photos are on the same card. If you have a mac, the sd cards will appear on your desktop. If you are using windows, I believe it shows up under your start menu and then my computer (though to be honest, I haven't used a computer with Windows in a while).
Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card, not an SD card. While SDHC cards will fit into SD slots, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use an SD (or MMC or xD or MS), 2GB and smaller.
If the "camera chip" you refer to is a removable SD Memory Card you need to put that into a SD Card Slot on your computer or use an USB Card Reader device. The computer will recognize the SD Card as a Disk Drive and you can use Windows Explorer to transfer the picture files to it.
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.
Hi Amanda and Lisa. Are you making sure the picture frame is off BEFORE you plug it in to your computers? Make sure you:
Turn it off before pluging it in, then plug in the USB cable. Now you can turn on the picture frame and you should see the frame's memory and any SD cards you have plugged into it in the removable drives section.
Let me know if that helps. If not let me know, and thanks for coming to FixYa. If you're happy with my answer then don't forget to rate it appropriately.
