Question about Mac Laptops
I am trying to setup an SD card to give with a digital picture frame. I picked out about 260 pictures from various cameras, all jpg's. I had about 900 mb, and wanted to use a 1gb SD card, so I decided to resize them with a (Mac) Automator action Resize Picture Dropper - all went well and reduced most 4mb pictures to about 500k. Now the total is about 100 mb. I have tried drag/dropping the whole bunch onto the SD card, but every time I get an error (not enough free space) and I find there are only 3 zero k files on the SD card, which I then have deleted.
Things I have tried:
1. checked the info on the folder, total mb is accurate 2. compressed to a zip file, still getting the ''not enough'' error 3. transferring smaller sets, I get to about 123, then ''not enough'' error comes up on ANY other picture I try to transfer; info says 51mb used and 918 mb free. 4. used disk utility several times during all this; no errors on the SD file system (FAT 16); erased with utility and also checked volume info which shows nothing to repair and 968.5 mb capacity and 968 mb free. 5. used photoshop to verify camera info, file size and made sure no PS layers present. 6. changed some file names from original - p1050456.jpg to shorter names like rick2.jpg 7. restarted my Macbook a couple of times to be sure it wasn't an OS error.
I am out of ideas - anyone know what is going on with this?
Formatting the SD card to FAT32 instead of FAT16. Also, when the card is in the reader & you're looking at it on the Mac, empty the Trash while the card is still plugged-in.
