SD card(s) - not enough free space?

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.

I need an instruction leaflet - I've forgotten how it works and how to put new pictures on it.

Hi, most of this type picture frame require an S.D. card usually the large type . There are some that are the large sd card but you can insert a small sd card into the large one . If you have a large sd card in your camera then all you have to do is insert it in the picture frame. If you have a pc you can transfer your pictures to a separate sd card and use that just for the picture frame . If you have pictures on your phone you will have to transfer them to a pc then put your sd card from your picture frame into the pc and transfer to the sd card from the picture frame.

Today, I added photos to a 16GB SD card and the digital frame is indicating that there is no card inserted, when it is. Is there any way I can get the picture frame to read the new SD card?

it may be that the sd card is incompatible with your digital picture frame

It may be too large in capacity may be the incorrect type of sd there are sd hc and ad xc at the moment

Sounds like the memory installed in the frame is full. Try a different memory card or USB stick to see if the various ports are working. Be sure and try a full power off, batteries removed, reset. On the menu, is there a "format" function? if you reformat the memory, you will lose all of the pictures, make sure you have other copies, but that should return it to factory condition.

How many pictures can the Kodak EasyShare SV811 hold at one time? I tried uploading around 30 picutres from my computer to my digital picture frame and only 17 of them uploaded. Did I try uploading too...

SV811 doesn't have a large enough internal memory thats why the picture capacity depends on the inserted SD card or if you transferre pics directly from the computer to display simultanously.

The frame should display as many as on the SD card.

Nextar N7-202 digital photo frame

I had the same problem and called Nextar Support. The gal I spoke with asked how big my SD card was and informed me that the capacity for this frame is only 2 GB. Sure enough, my card was 4 GB. I transferred the pictures to a 2 GB card and it works great! (Note to Nextar: might be nice if they put this somewhere in the paperwork BEFORE people buy an SD card.)

How many photos can be stored on a digital photo frame?

I generally depends upon the size of the picture that you are storing and the memory card that in the digital frame.
eg 128 MB photo frame ,would store close to 10 pictures at 8 megapixel resolution
