    Our son gave both my husband and I a
    Coby Digital Photo Keychain. We each have a Mac laptop. The Mac cannot handle the little CD. Both of us had them get STUCK in the CD drawer. The machine couldn't eject them and I tried all the methods. I finally got a "fine" tweezers, and grabbed the edge of the CD and pulled it out. Then I tried to go to the web-site where I could down load it. It DOESN'T work.
    Is this just a waste that we need to get our money back??? I sure will never trust Coby products again. It says it works on a MAC. NOT SO!
    A word of caution. If you have a Mac...don't try this!

    I too can't seem to turn the stupid thing on. When it's on the the charge mode connected to the computer, the green light is on and the pictures are showing. The second I unplug it, the screen goes black. I've even tried holding down the menu button for a minute and still nothing. Has anyone found out how to turn it on???

    I purchase a sharper image digital viewer. I plug it in to my USB and all I get on My Computer is an additional cd drive. It seems that the accompanying software in the device doesn't launch. I tried it on a different computer and it does. Anyone have any ideas on how to get it to work on my computer? Thanks so much!

This keychain has a horrible setup. Not knowing a bit of computers I wouldn´t have had a chance.
1st) download the proper software "Tao Image TRansfer 4.9 " (google)

2nd) Plug the kexchain with the USB Cable to your computer, select USB update and then press the Menu button. Immediately start the programm ! Then nit will work.

3rd) The key chain only will be loaded if you connect it with your Computer and set it to "USB Charge"

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.

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.

Cannot install on Windows XP


I was a little frustrated reading the above...being a PC user....apparently, this work well for Mac users

first, you must 'charge' the unit for 3 hours.

IT IS an easy fix...uninstall the Picture Viewer that you got from the Disc they gave...Throw it away. Go to at the top of the keychain section, it says "download".............. THIS version works.

Innovage photo keychain software problem

For the Innovage photo keychain software download,go to Download the software from there. You will get a .zip file. When you "unzip" it, a folder appears on your desktop. Inside that folder is a "package" icon. Double click that and now you have Picture Viewer on your desk top.
However, I am a Mac user, too, just bought this keychain yesterday, chose my photos, got them in the Picture Viewer, but I can't see them on the keychain.!!! I am going to call their tech support. What a bummer1
