Can't display photos

According to others who have had this issue, there are a couple of things that may help you get your pictures seen easier.
  1. make sure there are no illegal characters in the filename IE: commas, ", or any other type of weird characters.
  2. if you are loading photos straight from a camera and not editing them at all, if you are using an 8 megapixel camera or around there. your photo resolution is way to high for it to load fast in an ipod. Change the photo size in a bulk resizing program or make to photos smaller in photoshop or your camera software.
to see if they just flat don;t load at all, bring a pic up and let your ipod sit...wait wait wait if it's resolution at some time during your busy day it will show up.

Problem about uploading pictures

First, make sure the pictures are in jpg format, and put the ones that you want on the iPod into a specific folder - you can even call it "iPod photos folder" if you want.
Then conenct the iPod to the computer, and then open up iTunes.
Left-click on the tab that says iPod Nano, if it doesn't come up automatically, and then select the Photos tab.
Select the drop down next to the line that says "Sync Photos from," and locate the folder that the photos are stored in.
It will add all photos that are in that folder to your iPod - may take several minutes depending on how many photos you are addding.
Once this option is selected, any photos that you add to this folder from here on out will be automatically added to the iPod whenever you connect the iPod to the computer.
On the iPod Nano, horizontally-biased photos display the best - wil ltake up the full screen of your Nano; but vertically-biased photos wil lstill show up.

Good luck!

How do you delete photos?

If you go into Windows Media Player, you have to change the Library option from Music to Photos and THEN go into the Sync tab - should now display photos instead of music.

Alternatively, you can double-click My Computer, double-click the icon of the Sansa, and find the images or picture folder - you may have to change your usb mode to msc in order to view this folder (don't forget to change it back later, or not all of your files will show up when you want them to). ONLY delete image files - if you delete system files, your mp3 player will become unusable.

Or, you can follow the method reccomended by your manual - the full user's manual is available from Sanidsk's website:
Delete Photos and Video
The photos are stored in 2 locations on your Sansa…My Album and
Thumbnails. The instructions below for deleting photos and video from your
player were created using Windows XP with Windows Media Player 11.
To delete photos from your Sansa, please execute the following steps:
1) Connect your Sansa e200 to your computer
2) Select Open device to view files using Windows Explorer on initial
3) Click the drive containing your photos
4) Click on the photo folder.
5) Highlight and delete the photos stored in My Computer\Sansa
e200\...\Photo\My Album
and My Computer\Sansa
e200\...\Photo\thumbnail\My Album

How do I enable the Picture thumbnails on the 605?

I had the same problem this morning - the same grey boxes until you open the individual photos (all this within 24hrs out of the box) but it has now gone away now that i have recharged the unit. I presume it is a power saving function - makes sense really. Just a shame there was nothing in the manual to warn you of this feature.

Hope that helps.

Can I view photos on my iPod photo/"Color"? nano?

Depending on the model, to view photos on your iPod photo/"Color", you either need to import photographs using Apple's iPod Camera Connector, or transfer images from your computer through iTunes 4.7 or higher to the iPod. For the current iPod U2 Special Edition "Color", iPod "Color" (20.0 GB), the version of the iPod photo (60 GB) introduced on February 23, 2005 and renamed iPod "Color" (60 GB) on June 28, 2005, as well as the discontinued iPod photo (30 GB), the simplest way to transfer photos from many digital cameras to your iPod is to purchase and use Apple's iPod Camera Connector (US$29). This device simply allows you to directly connect a digital camera to the camera connector and in turn connect the camera connector to the iPod "dock" port. Photos imported using the iPod Camera Connector are immediately viewable, with the exception of RAW format images and video clips. However, photos imported using the iPod Camera Connector cannot be immediately viewed as a slideshow with transitions. On versions of the iPod photo (40 GB, 60 GB) released prior to February 23, 2005, photos transferred directly from a digital camera using an iPod-compatible media reader are not immediately viewable, but photos transferred through iTunes 4.7 or higher, which converts photos into a "thumbnail" format, can be viewed on the iPod photo itself or displayed using the iPod photo connected to a TV or projector. The iPod nano, introduced September 7, 2005, can display photographs on the internal display "loaded" from a computer, but as it lacks video out, it cannot display photographs on a television or projector. The iPod nano also does not support the iPod Camera Connector or third-party solutions, so photos cannot be transferred from a camera. For information regarding the iPod nano and accessory compatibility, please refer to Apple Support
