Question about SmartParts SP-DPF56E Digital Picture Frame
The older memory frames could only read a few MEGS of memory sticks, not Gig. That could be a problem, these were made cheap so the latest and greatest parts were not used. Plus newer cameras are 4 mb per image rather then the 600K of older cellphones/cameras. That may be a problem too.
You can reduce the SIZE of the image to 800x600 rather then the 3K or 4K many cameras now take. There is a free program called PhotoFiltre (French company) that is very easy to use, free (no spyware) and only a few megs in size.
Install program, go to FILE OPEN, get image on stick, choose IMAGE - SIZE and erase the width, type in 800 click OK and it will adjust the height automatically. Then choose SAVE. Your file will be smaller but you will not notice it on an 8" screen. Do this with the rest, you will then have lots of room for more. WARNING.. do this with COPIES as you cannot "re-enlarge" them ! ! And as I have said since the 90's, alwasy have 2 backup copies in separate places. Those external drive are cheap insurance.

Put a memory card into a card read/writer and, once you've edited your pictures, place them on the card insert that in the frame and either use them from the card, or transfer them into the onboard memory.

The primary software is going to extract all the images, put only the images you want on the card, then insert into your picture photo frame.

I couldn't find very specific information about your picture frame. I did find out it is from a company called Smart Parts and it is not a Kodak frame.
If I had to guess, I would say that the frame is not SDHC compatible. What this means is that it only will work with cards up to 2gb (SD).
I saw a review site (http://www.reviewcentre.com/reviews115912.html) that had a lot of reviews about how the frame does not like to read jpgs from the SD cards so this could be the issue if the one above is not.
My recommendation would be to try to use a 2gb card. If that does not work, try loading the pictures onto the frame directly from the computer.

To remove a picture, connect the frame to your PC via USB. you should see the frame appear as a drive, in my case,
open the drive as Explore, you can now see the pictures, and delete what you no longer want.
you can download the software from

I had same problem today, my software on the PC was version 3.03, I upgraded to 4.1, it seems to work better now.
These frames are a little flaky, sometimes I have to power it off, and on, for it to be recognized.
