Question about Sony Mavica MVC-CD1000 Digital Camera
Has anyone successfully written edited (Photoshop) Jpeg files to mini CDs and then been able to display them using the CD1000? It would be extremely useful to edit frames (add titles, color correct, zoom etc) and then write them back to a new CD but it appears that after edit the .jpg file results in a "File Error" when the camera reads it. The Sony DirectCD manual (p11) seems to indicate that provided filename and directory conventions and followed (and if the file size is not too big) the camera will display files. Anyone had any luck or found out what the Jpeg file constraints are?

The problem is an incompatibility between Photoshop and Sony JPEG files. (I thought JPEG was supposed to be a standard!) A simple workaround is to use the PictureGear program supplied by Sony. Use its File – Process command to save the Photoshop frames to the CD-R. It is also useful to ensure that the frames are resized to 1600x1200, 1024, 640 etc to eliminate the black border that would otherwise be displayed by the camera. This “feature” can be useful however if you have frames that have important sections at the edge of the frame. This would often be lost when displaying on a TV. Save the frame as, say, 1520 x 1140 and you will always see the full picture! Another possible advantage is to use achieve greater JPEG compression. The CD1000 will accept PictureGear at the largest filesize (10) but one can use compression 8 or even less and get many more frames on a disk. There is a little loss of quality but much less than resizing down to a smaller image size. I would guess that the above will also apply to memory stick.
