    Hi-Okay-the photos are originally in my IPhoto file on my Mac Laptop. Now--on the digital photo frame, there is an icon labeled PHOTOS. (There is nothing to right click)I can click on the photo icon, and then it says 'loading' and then 'no playable file'.If I click on the arrow pointing to the right on the remote for the photo frame,
    it moves over to 'Setup'.When I click again on the right arrow on the remote, it brings up a screen with four icons, and the top one opens and it says Interval Time, or Transition Effect, . I do not see anything that says 'properties'.Sorry to be so stupid. Also, is there anywhere that I could possibly get a users guide for this thing? [email protected]

    Roberta, do you know what kind of file are the photos?
    If you dont right-click over the photo icon and select properties. Once you see the type of file it is, let me know.

I use a mac. Have all pictures stored on iphone and would love to know how to get the photos to my photo frame. Not sure how to get pictures from iphoto to a memory card or whatever it is I need to do.

Use iPhoto to get the images off your iPhone and onto your Mac, then export you selected images to a media format the photo frame support.
Now without knowing the requirements of the photo frame but going to guess it accepts and USB thumb drive. Once you have imported your images into iPhoto from your iPhone, plug in the USB thumb drive to your Mac. In iPhoto, select the images you wish to move to your photo frame ( either select an album or individual images). Then go to the File Menu and pull down to Export and save the images to your Thumb drive. For best results for image quality on the photo frame you will want to match the export size with the native resolution of the photo frame.

Uploading photos

Both the thumb drive and the picture frame are USB slave devices, not USB masters. They both need to be connected to a USB master in order to transfer files.

Do you have a standard USB cable from some other device, any other device? If so, that should fit into the picture frame. If not, you'll have to buy one.

Connect the thumb drive to your computer. Create a folder on the computer and copy your photos to that folder. Then connect the picture frame to the computer and copy the photos from the folder to the frame.

If you have two or more USB ports, you can skip the folder and just copy photos from the thumb drive directly to the frame.

This is not designed to plug into your computer. The device has no memory to store photos or music. You have to copy your photos onto a USB thumb drive or a NON SD memory card.
