SOURCE: Philips Voice Tracer 860 Files are

Though you could see that the Philips is empty, we cannot say that it's completely empty. There could be some hidden files or the storage portion of the device is not working correctly.

First, check the available storage of your device to see if you have enough space to save or record a file. Next, try to record a voice that will not exceed to the available storage.

If you find the storage completely empty, but still you're having a trouble of saving a file, then you may need to reformat the storage portion of the device/player.

NOTE: Reformatting the device would lose every file including the program. I would suggest to contact the manufacturer and have them reformat your device, reload the program and upgrade the firmware of your Voice Tracer and that should work properly.

Good luck and have a great day!

SOURCE: I downloaded files on my 8gb philips go gear

Hi leefordnarte,

You can find a lot of valuable resources on the Philips Support Site...I am not sure which specific model you have, but the Product Support Page for the SA5285/37 can be found here:

For the issue you described, I would attempt a Repair/Recovery - this process will restore your player to factory settings, as well as update the firmware in the process.

Try the Philips Device Manager software (found on the support site if you do not have your original software disc):

NOTE: Contents will be removed by using the repair function.

  1. Install the Philips Device Manager and run it with your player connected to your PC. You can download it under the Software & drivers section.
  2. Click the Repair tab in the Device Manager, press and hold the corresponding recovery key on the player when connecting it to your PC.

  3. Follow the PC screen to recover your player.
You can find the recovery key on your player from the below table.

Hope this helps - if so, let me know by rating this solution. If you have any additional questions or need assistance, you can reach Consumer Care at 1-888-744-5477.

Polaroid IDF-1030 Digital Picture Frame - Slideshow with Music

The manual for the Polaroid IDF-1030 is ridiculously simple and not very helpful. There's actually more information on the outside of the box.
One of the features that is not intuitively easy to figure out is how to get the frame to display a picture slideshow AND play music at the same time. The remote is the only way that you can set this up. 
First, on your computer, create a folder for the images and a folder for the music. If you put music in the images folder, your slideshow will stop at the first music file it finds and just display the music player's equalizer interface. This is very boring. 
Note on the pictures.. spend a little time and reduce the size of your pictures to 640 x 480 pixels. Dealing with large files on the photo frame is painfully slow.
images should be in JPEG (.jpg) format although it will also display .gif files. Music should be MPEG (.mp3) format.
Copy these folders to the root of your memory card.
Put the memory card in the Polaroid frame card slot and turn it on. 
Use the remote and press the STOp button if it automatically starts displaying the pictures. 
Press the MUSIC button and select the REPEAT button until you see REPEAT ALL at the bottom of the screen.

Press the PLAY/PAUSE to start the music, then immediately press the SLIDESHOW button to start the slideshow with music.
I hope this helps some of you who had trouble with this.

Whenever I load photos onto my photo frame from the PC, they all seem to transfer just fine. But then when running the slideshow, not all the pictures are showing up. When I go into the photo menu on the...

The issue may be due to the file types of the pictures you are sending to the frame. You did not include the model number of the frame, so I can't be sure of the file types it can display but generally, JPG file types enjoy the most compatibility on such devices.

You should determine the file types of the images you are sending to the display. While displaying the slideshow, make a note of an image that displays properly. Look at the the image on your computer and check the file details to learn which file type it is. Play the slideshow on the frame and double check as many as you can against the list / thumbnails on the computer. After a short time, a trend show be visible. You may find that JPG and GIF files display properly, but TIF and others do not.

If you want those pictures to display, you'll have to convert them to one of the file types that does display. If you're finding that only some JPG (or other displayable file type) do not display properly, you'll have to see what is different. Sometimes, very large files may not display correctly, or it may have "too much color" information (they might be a 16 bit graphic or 16 million colors instead of an 8 bit graphic or 256 colors), or some other issue that isn't readily apparent. You can try resizing or converting to yet another format that is supported by the display (GIF for instance).

This is a starting point - hopefully you'll find the issue within one of these suggestions. Good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

Bmp files

Your CE 200 allows you to do very basic digitizing by using Autopunch. The color difinitions on your bmp. file should be clear, or your results will be poor.

To activate autopunch, click on "create" from the top menu and select "autopunch" from the drop down menu. A new Autopunch wizard menu should open. Click on "next" on the browse to your bmp. file by clicking on "select". Keep on clicking on "next" until you get to the "customize stitch block" menu. Here you are able to remove unwanted blocks or change the stitching order by clicking on a block in the right hand menu and the clicking on the "Remove", "move up" or "move down" buttons.

By clicking on the radio buttons, just below the "move down" button, you can also select between Fill stitch or Satin stitch. When you are happy with your decisions, click on next and click on finish.

That is about all that you can do and autopunch will do the rest. I suggest you import a couple of dfferent clipart images and play around as discribed above to make you familiar with the program. You will also see different results by changing options.

If you are not happy with final results, I suggest you invest in a proper digitizing program, such as Creative Drawings. Visit the at

Good Luck

Hi uplate

the image should be called oemlogo.bmp

rename this file to oemlogo-old.bmp
open up "oemlogo.bmp" using paintbrush and save again as oemlogo.bmp making sure that it is going to be saved in the same place ie c:\windows\system32
once done either edit the oemlogo.bmp file or create a new image file, making sure that your new image file is the same pixle size as the origional oemlogo.bmp file.

my current oemlogo.bmp file is quite small, but experement to see what is best.

I initially found out how to do this from the following link. not all systems have this oemlogo.bmp file but you should be able to create one and save it in the system32 folder without issue.
