Dolphin 1.5" Digital Photo Framew with Key Chain
I had the same problems but solved it by uninstalling the useless POS software, rebooting the computer and reinstalling everything.
I have found that you have to do this everytime that you want to add or delete photos. Probably the worst piece of software I have seen in 15 years of working on computers.
If it won't detect as a seperate drive in "My Computer" then you will have to uninstall it and start again.
There is also no need to format the device. Just ignore it and start downloading photos and it worked straight away. (Using XP Home) As to battery life, I suspect I will never know because it is liable to have a visit from my sledge hammer before it runs out of power.

Oh My GOD! I think I have conquered the beast!!! I'm very nearly bald, I've pulled out so much hair over this rotten bastard of a product! Easy to use my arse! It does WHAT it wants to, WHEN it wants to!
I finally was able to get the programme to download to the C drive. I just had to keep uninstalling & reinstalling until it took. Sorry I can't be more helpful there.
From there, it's a matter of opening the file in the C drive, opening folders that contain the photos you want on your keyring, & double clicking to select. (Sorry, make sure the device is plugged in & ON [select update mode] before doing anything.)
The programme itself is quite straight forward & it would take me longer to explain it all than it would to suss it out for yourself.
After you have selected all the photos you want on there, I've found you need to click on the buttons in a specific order for them to 'work'. Click Save Data, then Load Data, then Synchronize. If the error message comes up, click Cancel. This should then download (buggered if I know why!) but it works & you should have all your photos. This didn't happen the first time, but each time I've tried to download more photos it does this.
Hope this helps all you pissed off users out there!
So much for it being a Christmas present!! Guess you're getting it this year for Christmas, Nanna!!
PS. To all those of you thinking of purchasing one - DON'T. Find a similar product made by someone who knows how to make it RIGHT!

I have, through my son's help, worked out what to do to get the program up and running and download some photo's onto the Digital frame key chain.
When you have plugged in the USB and the devise comes up with the screen showing USB Charge or USB update. Press the top button on the right hand side to scroll to the USB update one then press the middle button and the picture of the computer and devise will come onto the screen, wait a few seconds and the program will automaticlly open and you can proceed to get your pictures.
It took me a while to work out how to find the files, but after opening a few I managed to get there. Not bad for a older computer user?
Good lick everybody.

Yes dont format using widows xp, vista or "a ps3" cos i tried them all but non of them will let you unless you use a windows 95 boot disc to format it yes that worked but i killed the software in the key chain. I got the thing replaced and started from scratch using xp i installed the software on the disc first then i connected the usb and set the to "USB Upload", that i clicked the "PhotoViewer V208G2" icon. The pics on the right are whats on the device and the menu of the left is your computer, find the pics you wont to put on your keyring double click on the pics and thay will copy to the keyring when you get to about "45" pics on the device click the synchronize in the top left hand corner and you are done.
hope this helps ive spent about 8 hours trying to get it to work which included installing windows 95, windows 98 and
windows me on 2 different computers so sorry about the grammar
its just been a long day :-(...

Okay heres the simple answer
1- install the software from the cd
2- restart pc
3 - connect the keyring to the pc via usb
IMPORTANT - 4 - on the keyring you must choose USB UPDATE - if you dont choose it, nothing will work, once you choose it the pc will recognise it as a storage device and just copy st pics
