Hi, i wonder if any one can help me, I have recently been bought a digital photo 'frame'. I have many photos on my PC and saved on CD's. I have been told that it is possible to 'save' these photo's back onto the XD card in the camera from my PC...... I have tried copying back to the 'external device' my camera, but I keep getting a communications error displayed on the camera. I have not been able to find any instructions anywhere as to how I can copy back to the camaera, and I am now beginning to wonder if in fact it can be done, I have a Fuji A500, could any one advise me please.

Pandigital photo frames are an ideal way to display your collection of
digital photos. You can view photos with or without a computer using
just a memorycard,
but it's always a good idea to transfer the photos you'll want to view
frequently to the internal memory of your frame. This is also a handy
way to back up your favorite images.
Transferring Photos from a Memory Card
Your digital photo frame's
built-in software will recognize six types of memory card: CF I/II, SD,
MS Pro, MMC and XD. Locate the slot on the back of the frame (to the
left of the stand) that corresponds with your type of memory card. These
are labeled as follows: SD/MMC/MSPro/XD, CF I/II, USB and mini USB.
Insert your memory card into the appropriate slot, power on your digital
frame, and it will automatically begin a slideshow using every
available image on your memory card. Note that only JPEG formats under
16 megapixels are compatible.
Transferring Photos from a PC
Use the USB cable that came with
your frame. Connect the mini USB end to the mini USB port on the back
of your frame; connect the large USB end to your computer's
USB port. Double-click the "My Computer" icon on your desktop or in
your Windows "Start" menu. You'll see that your computer has
automatically assigned a drive to your digital frame---look for a device
called "Removable Disk" followed by a letter (Removable Disk E:, for
example). This is the folder that represents the internal memory of your
digital photo frame; you will be dragging your photos into this folder.
Next, open the folder in which you store your photos ("My Pictures,"
for example). Select the photos you want to transfer to your frame. Drag
them to the drive associated with your digital photo frame---this is
the "Removable Disk" drive you located within the "My Computer" folder.
Every photo you selected will then be copied onto your digital frame.
After the files are copied, disconnect your digital frame properly.
If you don't, your frame's internal memory could be damaged. Look for
the system tray in your desktop's
lower right-hand corner. Left-click the icon that shows a gray box with
a green arrow on top of it. Select "Safely Disconnect Hardware." A
dialog box will appear, asking you to select the device to disconnect.
Select the digital frame and click "OK." When the dialog box appears,
click "Close." You'll see a message in the lower right hand portion of
your desktop telling you it's safe to disconnect your frame.
Copying Photos to Your Frame's Internal Memory
You can use your frame's remote
control to copy photos from your memory card or computer to the photo
frame's internal memory. Connect your photo source (computer or memory
card) and have your frame's remote control handy. Access the "Home"
screen on your frame using the "Home" button on your remote control or
by pressing the "Home" button on top of the frame. Next, choose "Photos"
and press "Enter." You'll see all your photos in thumbnail form. Scroll
through them with the up and down arrows. Press the "+" key to mark
photos you want to copy (use "-" to de-select a photo). When you've
selected all the photos you want to copy, press "Set Up," then "Copy
Photo," "Enter," "Selected" and "Enter." A dialog box will ask you to
confirm your selection; with the cursor on "Yes," press "Enter." The
photos you selected will be copied to the frame's internal memory.
1st) How did you put the photos on your stick? Did you load them from a computer, or did you load them off a camera?
If you loaded them off a camera, did you format the card before you took the pics, or before transferring them from the camera's internal memory? You have to do format the memory card from the camera menu before it will work properly.
If you used a computer, same thing, you need to format the stick before you transfer photo's to it. Try it and let me know.
The Kodak S510 does not have a built-in internal memory. You can hook it up on your computer using a USB cable with a USB OTG connector and copy the pictures from your computer to the inserted memory card or a USB flash drive in the frame.
Also, make sure that your photos are in JPEG format.
If you need to transfer to your computer just connect the USB cable from the camera to the computer, switch the camera on, turn the dial to View and Voila! A connect icon appears on the camera screen. Follow instructions on screen to download photos; develop if necessary. Presumably you will then be able to download the jpegs to your photo frame from your computer.
