No icon is coming up when the digital photo keychain is connected to the computer via the USB. the keychain is charged, the screen is displaying the generic photo already on it but, no icon and no transfer...


When the cam is connected to the computer no pics will show on the LCD. While charging through the USB the cam. will not be able to transferre pics at the same time.
The cam either charges or transferres.

Digital Photo Keychain 8 mb


Make sure the keychain is turned on. If it still doesn't work, leave it plugged in and restart. Your computer will tell you if it has been recognized by a little pop up... or mine does anyway. (win xp) On a Mac, it should just pop up on the desktop.

Check under Start > My Computer
You should see the little drive here if it is connected right.

These are the steps I would take. If it doesn't work, I'm not sure what's going on. You can check out my other post here and read the manual on adding the photo's manually. (You have to make sure the photographs are small since the keychain only holds 8mb. Most photographs directly from a camera are 2mb a piece. Make them smaller with an image program)
