Picasa images are not necessarily in the specific jpeg format that the keychain reads - try converting the Picasa images to JPG format.

Is it possible to download software to put digital photo's in my Sharper Image Keychain?


Shouldn't it just work as a a flash drive device? Plug it in, drag and drop photos into it.

Did not receive a cd with Sharper Image Digital Photo Keychain. Downloaded software from site, but when the photo keychain is plugged into the computer, does not recognize software.


I see you have downloaded the software for the keychain. You didn't mention downloading the drivers. The drivers is what lets the keychain and the computer sync and communicate.

Instructions for digital photo keyring


It should be listed ethier under my computer or down near the clock on the remove hardware safely wizard. That icon looks like a card with an arrow over it.

From the start bar, open "My Computer."

Double click the keychain; It may be listed under a generic name like removable disk F: then double click the Viewer/picture icon.

With the software open, click on Load to view all
images.

If the screen is empty, no photos are stored in memory.

To add a new image into the Click Add Image
images have to be .jpg, .bmp or .gif

If the device is not listed, uninstall the software. Totally shut down without the keychain in the usb.

Plug the keychain into a main usb, not a router. Turn your computer back on. Turn off virus programs. Reinstall using hardware wizard and load the software when the wizard asks drivers.

If the hardware isn't identified, run the wizard from the control panel add remove hardware.

This is the best I can do with no OS or product name. I hope it helps. I can help others better in the future if you rate this answer because it will help me know if I'm on the right track. Thanks, have a good new year.

I just purchased a Sakar digital photo frame keychain. I downloaded 22 photos from my Documents displayed on Active Images Express but from there is where I'm having trouble getting the photos to the...


I feel your pain. Go to their web site and download a readable manual http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.sakar.com/images/resources/thumbs/12690%2520black.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.sakar.com/p-169.aspx%3Fcategoryid%3D155&usg=__UCOoniXB9VJe9zn80S4X1J8mj7o=&h=120&w=104&sz=9&hl=en&start=8&um=1&tbnid=5j97XYF3RmFbdM:&tbnh=88&tbnw=76&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dsakar%2Bdigital%2Bphoto%2Bframe%2B12490%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26rlz%3D1T4GGLL_enUS305US305

The key is to hit the send photos button in the upper left hand corner of the main page. that will open up the photo viewer. Once there the instrutions actually make sense. going to select Photos and opening active image express will not down load the pictures, you have to get to the photo viewer v2.3. the manual is correct you just have to read if very carfully.

Good luck

My digital photo keychain album


My instruction booklet says:
IMPORTANT: The keychain MUST be plugged in and in "update" mode in order for you to open the Photo Viewer progarm. If it is not plugged in, or is in the wrong mode, you will get the following error" No photo viewer is found, program terminated!
2. Once the keychain is plugged in and in "update" mode double click the Photo Viewer icon on your desktop to launch the application. (I wasn't able to double click the Photo Viewer icon at all, so I don't know what else to do). And for the rest of you that are able to double click it, I will give you the instructions.
3. Use Photo Viewer's file manager to browse photos on your computer.
4. Once you select a photo, it will show up in the crop marquee. Put the box over the area that you want to see on your keychain and click the POST button (arrow to the right). This will move your photos to the collection panel.
5. Delete any unwanted photos by selecting the image in the collection panel and clicking the X button from the menu bar.
6. Once you have all photos in the collection panel that you want on your keychain, click the "synchronized" button. At the bottom of your screen, you will see that the status has changed from "idle " to "download" and the black bar will show %complete.
7. Once the download is 100% complete and you get the following message, "photo viewer data synchronized complete", click OK, exit the progam and disconnect the keychain.

IMPORTANT: Do not disconnect the Digital Photo Keychain until the download is complete and you exit the photo viewer software.

Innovage Digital Photo Album w Keychain driver


Summary of Solutions posted here and elsewhere:

I just received a Innovage Digital Photo Album Keychain as a gift and ran into some of the issues posted here. I am going to summarize the solutions I have come across in hopes they will help others.

Installing/obtaining the software:

The keychain requires you to use custom software to upload pictures. The keychain includes a mini-cd with the software. If you have a computer with a slot loading cd (i.e. laptop, imac, mac-mini, etc) do not try to put the CD into your computer, it may become stuck! Either call the service line and order a full size cd, or try downloading the software from either:
Coby DP-151 software
Digital Foci - Pocket Album software
(While these are different digital photo products, the transfer software appears to be same as the Innovate software)

The software should be installed before you plug in the keychain into your USB port.

Software Issues:

Some users have complained that they can't see the whole transfer window. You might have your screen resolution set too low (like 680x480 or 800x600) try increasing to 1024x768 or bigger.

Finding photos: The software is quite simple, it does not integrate with your photo software (e.g. iphoto) it simple reads image files. You will need to point the software to where your photos are stored on your computer. For most people this is either "My Pictures" or simply "Pictures" folder.

Transferring photos: There have been some recommendations to transfer the photos to the keychain in small batches (like 6-10) rather than queuing up 60 images to transfer all at once. Apparently the software has crashed on some peoples machines when transferring many images.

Device Issues:


Charging: The device has an internal battery, it must be charged via your computers USB port. In must be in the charge mode, it will not charge when it is in the update mode. When you first plug the device into your USB port a menu should come up on the screen. You can use the arrow buttons to change the selection, then press the power key to select your choice. For charging you should select "USB Charge". In this mode the keychain will display images and won't let you power off. The red light will supposedly turn green once the keychain is fully charged.

Transferring images:
The keychain must be in the "USB Update" mode before your software will talk with it. Try unplugging the keychain, plug it back in, wait for the menu, use the arrow keys to select "USB update", press the power button. Now try running your transfer software

Bad USB cables: Many people have reported that the supplied USB cable doesn't work. If you are having problems with charging or transferring images, first try another USB cable from a similar type device if you have one (many cameras have the same sized mini usb connectors)

Hope this helps someone!
