How do I copy pictures from my computer to the picture frame directly?

Posted by on

  • m_dkeith Jan 24, 2009

    When I connect my picture frame to the computer it comes up on the computer screen 'connected to computer. Use PC interfact to copy files'. On the computer in the My computer mode or Internet Explorer the Wizzard comes up that thinks I have connected my digital camera. How do I let it know it is a digital picture frame and not my camera? I have downloaded the user manual but can't follow the instructions because it doesn't do what it is supposed to do. Help!

Uploading photos


Both the thumb drive and the picture frame are USB slave devices, not USB masters. They both need to be connected to a USB master in order to transfer files.

Do you have a standard USB cable from some other device, any other device? If so, that should fit into the picture frame. If not, you'll have to buy one.

Connect the thumb drive to your computer. Create a folder on the computer and copy your photos to that folder. Then connect the picture frame to the computer and copy the photos from the folder to the frame.

If you have two or more USB ports, you can skip the folder and just copy photos from the thumb drive directly to the frame.

I want to dowload some picture from usb on the picture frame


you probably have 2 possibilities..
1st ) is to insert the stick ..(card with the picture on ...and choose to play the slide show from it )
2nd) is to connect it to the computer ...and after that the computer will recognize it ..and you will find it in my computer folder by its name or as a removable device (this mostly in case it has a card attached)
Open the folder and inside you will be able to see the pictures that are already there ...top Load pictures just drag and drop pictures in this folder or copy and paste them..after that you will be able to see them on the frame ...make some slide shows with different folders ..or just play all..and it will change them on a preset time ..
Same thing for Mac..bu the frame will be visible on desktop..and same just copy pictures into it(be sure you do not cut them cause you will loose from computer this way ..so ..just copy ..and paste into the frame's folder

Kodak easy share SV 811


I had the same problem. I use kodak easyshare software and load my pics on to that. Then put all the pics you want in the picture tray. Have your frame plugged into the computer with your usb cord. Then go up to File menu and drop down to "copy to". On my computer it is Folder "E" which is the drive the frame is connected to. Then pick from the Resize drop down menu " best for picture frame', then click copy. You will see the program loading all the pics to E drive. When done, unplug usb cord and you will see it loading on your pic frame. As easy as this is to do, I found it frustrating as well, but when it works, it is easy. Hope this helps
