Question about Acer PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have just bought a digital photo frame. The necessary software that comes with it is on a 'mini' CD. I have an Acer box that you normally just push an ordinary CD into. I cannot get it to take the mini CD. Is this because I am doing something wrong or is it just not made to take mini CDs?

Dear Kayty -

Unfortunately, the "slot" cdrom drives are not intended for use with the mini CDs. However, there are a few options; Cheapest and easiest would be to go to the Digital Photo Frame manufacturer's web site and download the software - more often than not, all of the necessary drivers and utilities can just be downloaded and installed from the net.

Otherwise, you might consider purchasing an external cdrom drive, generally costing between 30 and 60 bucks new, that would connect to your computer via USB cable. Maybe you've considered buying a CD or DVD Burner for your computer? Either one would work for installing the software from a mini-cd.

Here's a link to an external CDRW drive on ebay to give ya an idea:

Hope this helps ya!

Your options are either go to Acer for a replacement Vista recovery DVD or
Install a borrowed Vista DVD, must be same Vista Basic, Home Premium,
then use your registered CD key, normally located on the side or rear of your tower.
It will also tell which Vista type you have. You then must go to the Acer support site
and install then drivers for the componenets in you computer.
You will not have any other software installed that may have come with your
original setup from Acer. This option requires more work on your part, but
no cost to you. Acer will charge for a Recovery DVD, plus S&H.

I bought the ovo 3. photo manager and need a download to connect with the device as the cd is a mini


The majority of DVD/CD-Roms have a built-in slot that is capable of holding the mini disks. Try putting it in your cd-rom and load it up. I would expect it to read just fine.

How can i change the format that my "magix Photostory CD & DVD" program burns my pictures/music to a DVD that WILL play on a home DVD player and not just a computer? I have a Windows XP


There are three ways to create a Video CD (VCD) that contains your photo stories:
You can obtain Microsoft Plus! Digital Media Edition and view the Photo Story 3-authored WMV file in Photo Story 2 by going to Play your story or create a video CD of your story and then create a VCD.using the Photo Story 2 Video CD-burning feature.
• You can obtain Microsoft Digital Image Suite 10 or above and view the Photo Story 3-authored WMV file in the Photo Story that comes with the Digital Image Library and save and burn to VCD.
• You can obtain VCD-authoring products that work with Photo Story files, such as MyDVD by Sonic Solutions or InstantCD\DVD by Pinnacle Systems. You can use these software to convert the Windows Media video (WMV) files into files that can be copied to a DVD and played in a DVD player.
Note: VCD and DVD-authoring software is not included with Photo Story 3.

How many photos can be stored on a digital photo frame?


Hi,
I generally depends upon the size of the picture that you are storing and the memory card that in the digital frame.
eg 128 MB photo frame ,would store close to 10 pictures at 8 megapixel resolution

You may already have this, but below is a link to the manual for your digital photo frame. If you look at page 33, it states that a USB driver is not necessary if you are running windows XP. It also states that you must have a memory card installed in the photo frame when you plug it into the computer in order for the computer to recognize it. Finally, it also states on page 34 that the first time you plug in your frame that it may take several minutes to recognize the device before installing it. I hope this is more helpful.
