Coby DP-887 Digital Picture Frame: Unable to transfer pictures to internal memory
Fresh out of the box, trying to pre-load some pictures for a Christmas gift. Connected via USB, new hardware installed successfully. Looking under "My Computer" for the removable disks...several are listed (I believe they correspond to the different memory card slots available on the Frame) but unable to locate the one that corresponds to the internal memory. Each time I click on one of them, it says, "Please insert disk into Drive _" I have attempted this on two different computers, different USB cable, even tried another Picture Frame (I bought 2). Same problem each time.

The Coby DP-887 does not have built in memory so one cannot "load" pictures onto it. It is a viewer in every sense of the word. If you load pictures on a flash drive or memoory stick and plug that into the Coby DP-887 then you'll be able to view pictures or video.

The following instructions should be able to help you transfer pictures/images and music from your computer to the frame.
Power ON the frame. Connect the small end of the USB cable to the USB port on the side panel of the Digital Photo Frame. Connect the larger end of the USB cable to the USB port on your computer.
You will see some extra "Removable Disc" drives in "My Computer" -- One
for each of the memory card slots on the Digital Photo Frame. And the
last one is for the Internal Memory of the frame. Double-click on the
last "Removable Disc" icon to access the internal memory of the frame.
From here you can copy images and music files to the frame. You need to
transfer the images or music files into this folder (which is the
internal memory of the frame). Copy the files from your computer and
paste them in this folder. The picture files should be in the "standard JPEG" format and the music files should be in the "mp3" format. To disconnect the Digital Photo Frame from your computer:
In Windows, on the bottom taskbar, right click the icon which appears
in a green color, (this icon has an arrow pointing towards the left) and
select "Safely Remove Hardware". The Safely Remove Hardware" dialog box will appear. Select "USB Mass Storage Device" and click "STOP" On the next dialog box, click "OK" to remove the storage device. On the next dialog box, select "CLOSE" and disconnect the USB cable from your computer. Now you should be able to see the pictures on the digital photo frame.
I had the same problem on a 128 mb memory. I figured out that it can only load a certain # of objects/files. So I started from scratch, and I created a new folder in the pandigital and copied all the files/photos/mp3's into that 1 folder. Thus 1 object. I was able to fill the entire capacity after that. I can't believe I actually helped solve one! I hope it works for you...

Once you connected your EX811 to your computer, and get the
message “Use PC interface to copy files.” That means you can start copying files.
Here are the steps: Copy pictures, videos, and music between
your frame and computer, using your computer's normal file copying tools: 1. Connect the
USB cable from the frame to your computer 2. On your
computer, open My Computer or Windows Explorer. The picture
frame appears as removable drives—one drive for each connected picture source
in the frame, in this order: internal memory, memory cards, and USB devices. 3. Navigate to
the pictures you want to copy. Then drag and drop them to the new location. 4. Unplug the USB cable to view your copied pictures.
