Yes, that's because you have deleted the files. The frame will work just fine. You can can rename 'removable disk' to PANDIGITAL but it doesnt really matter.

All you need to do is copy the images and it will show up on the frame.

When I put the game in it says loading, and never stops loading. We have never got past that screen to play the game.


It could just be a glitch in the game. If you havent already you should try returning the game for another copy.

How too load pictures from home computer


Most do not have internal memory, but need to have the memory card in during use.

It is really annoying, but they're developing some more user friendly devices that will have this feature.

How do i put music on my frame? i bought my frame from a flea market without software


When connected to a PC, the frame should appear as a removable drive named "Pandigital". You can simply copy and paste music to the root of this drive (no folders). No software necessary. The music must be mp3 format (so no iTunes).

Is there is size limit on usb drive to pandigal model pan-70-0? I tried a 4 gig and it fresse up or dont work.


Their website only states the type of card supported and not the size so I assume there is no size limit. You could try to re-fromat the memory card using windows...maybe something got corrupted on the card.

Pandigital 7" photo frame won't play video


It appears that the Pandigital 7" frame (7001W01) can only play back videos encoded with the Motion JPEG A codec. The instructions do not articulate this properly and only inform you to use .avi and that video from other sources other than your camera may not be supported. Problem is, not all cameras use MJPEG A to compress the footage. But this workflow will allow you to make any type of video playback on the frame.

Just to clarify - .AVI is not a video format. It's a wrapper that holds the video. The same goes for things like .MOV or .OGM. These are only wrappers. So for Pandigital to say the frame supports ".AVI" does not explain much. It does not support codecs like DiVX or H.264, for example.

At any rate - your best option to get video to play back on these frames is to download MPEGStreamclip from the developer Squared5 (it's free) and use it to convert your videos to Motion JPEG A avi's. I'm not sure about Fixya's linking policy, but you can easily search google for "MPEGstreamclip" and find Squared5's website.

MPEGstreamclip is available for both Mac and PC platforms.

1. Once you have the software, open it and go to FILE -> OPEN FILES and select the video you would like to encode. It will load in the viewer.

2. Next, go to FILE -> EXPORT TO AVI. This will open your compression options for an .AVI

3. The first option you are offered is "Compressor" - this is the most important. Click on the arrow and scan through until you find "Apple Motion JPEG A" Click it to select this as your compression codec.

4. Leave the quality setting at 50% I found that the Pandigital Frame will choke on larger files. We're going to be shooting for a file size of appx 300mb for 3-4mins of video in order to keep things moving. Video data is very large, and the fact is is that this frame is not meant to playback very data intensive files. So you will be best off playing it safe and keeping your bitrate (kbps) low.

5. If your video file has sound, leave your Sound setting at MP3 / Stereo / Auto, but drop the bitrate to 96kbps or 128kbps. Again, we're trying to keep file sizes down and the audio out of the Frame is not great to begin with. If you must have audio, keep it low (96kbps or 128kbps) If your file does not have sound, click the MP3 drop down menu and select "No Sound"

6. Choose your frame size. If your video is 16:9 (rectangle) select 854x480 (16:9) if it is 4:3 (square) select 640x480 (4:3) - Please note, if you are using 4:3 videos, your video will have black bars on both sides of the frame. This is the nature of video aspect ratios. Aside from magnifying your video to fit a 16:9 screen, you will need to have black bars.

7. Check the box "Deinterlace video"

8. Ignore the other options.

Click "Make AVI" and the video will begin to be compressed. As I mentioned, video is a very data intensive process and compression can take time depending on the length and size of the original video. I tested this on files that were 3 minutes and 3 GB to begin with on a MacBook Pro and got the file down to 300mb in 15 minutes using these settings. I repeated this on a PC running Windows XP and had the same experience. Your times and sizes will vary.

I do not recommend trying to playback files over 700mb on the frame. My first attempt gave me a 1GB file that froze the frame when it tried to playback.

In all likelihood you will need to put the video file on a SD card or use a USB thumbdrive as the internal memory of the frame is 128mb.

Good luck! And don't be afraid to try other settings in MPEGstreamclip to better render your videos for the frame. Video compression is all about trial and error :)

Card read error on the digital picture frame - brand new. I bought this 7" digital photo frame from argos and I insert the SD card whilst the device is turned off, when I turn it on the message reads...


Put the card back into the camera and off load/take off your pictures (Put them on the computer). Then, put the card back into the camera and go to your options menu. Find the format feature, and format the card. Take some new pictures and then try putting the card back into the picture frame. Does it work? If so, transfer the images from your computer back to the card. If it continues to work, then Great! If not, more than likely there is an improper or corrupt file among your photos.


Good Luck!
