If you get such as message on your PC, it means exactly that: you do not have the appropriate decoder or codec for the media file you are trying to display (or play for that matter).
Your MP3 player, if its just a MP3 playser such as the Sansa m230 will not be able to display pictures which are usually .jpg files (could also be .bmp or other picture formats) or video which are usually .MP4 or .AVI or .WMV

I just paid $80 for Sansa MP3 player and all i get is, "unsupported media format", when i try to load pictures on it. I really dont have time for this kind of stuff nor do i have more money to invest in...


Make sure you're pictures are in jpeg,jpg or bmp format and that their resolution isn't too high. The best thing to do would be to convert them to a supported format using free programs like gimp, paint.net or even paint.
Good luck
