The external hard drive is diferent from a regular USB stick, so this is probably the case. You could check the manual of the photo frame and the manual of the externa drive, probably you will find some settings that reffer to this.

You could also check that the external drive is plugged in to AC, and turned on, many drives require alternative power source when conected to low power readers like your photo frame.

How do i move photo's from a external card to a internal memory on a digital photo frame


If you have an external card reader, attach it to your computer by using a USB cable. Your computer should instantly recognize the card.

Insert a memory card into the card reader. Again, your computer will notice the card reader and make the files (photos) available. 91516.image5.jpg enlarge.gif Enlarge
3
Open your computer's main system folder, then open the card reader's drive. This figure shows a Windows computer system folder, including a card reader. 4
Open the folder into which you want to copy the image files. You can also simply drag the files to your computer's desktop. 5
Drag and drop the image files in the reader's folder to your computer's hard drive. You can place the files either in the folder you opened or on the desktop.

Polaroid IDF-1030 Digital Picture Frame - Slideshow with Music


The manual for the Polaroid IDF-1030 is ridiculously simple and not very helpful. There's actually more information on the outside of the box.
One of the features that is not intuitively easy to figure out is how to get the frame to display a picture slideshow AND play music at the same time. The remote is the only way that you can set this up. 
First, on your computer, create a folder for the images and a folder for the music. If you put music in the images folder, your slideshow will stop at the first music file it finds and just display the music player's equalizer interface. This is very boring. 
Note on the pictures.. spend a little time and reduce the size of your pictures to 640 x 480 pixels. Dealing with large files on the photo frame is painfully slow.
images should be in JPEG (.jpg) format although it will also display .gif files. Music should be MPEG (.mp3) format.
Copy these folders to the root of your memory card.
Put the memory card in the Polaroid frame card slot and turn it on. 
Use the remote and press the STOp button if it automatically starts displaying the pictures. 
Press the MUSIC button and select the REPEAT button until you see REPEAT ALL at the bottom of the screen.

Press the PLAY/PAUSE to start the music, then immediately press the SLIDESHOW button to start the slideshow with music.
I hope this helps some of you who had trouble with this.

How do i download pictures to tablet


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 memory card, 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.
  1. 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.

I can't get my DP702 digital frame to save my pictures from my camera. Can you tell me how to do it ... ty


The DP702 frame only takes 14 pictures saved to the slideshow file. Install a memory card/device, then plug in the usb cable, electronic store carry it for 7 or 8 dollars. It's too bad, it doesn't come with the frame. Choose the photo you want saved, and press the save button on the remote to save the photo to the slideshow, if you press it again while you're on the same frame, I think it will delete that photo. I hope that helps.

Pandigital Photo Frame - Slideshow leaves out Photos?


Size limit depends on exact model. Anything over 4GB will almost certainly not work consistently with any. model 1GB or less should work with any model. None of the images should be stored in folders, and all should be jpeg format (.jpg). If any of them have been edited, they may be saved as Progressive jpeg or something similar even if the extension (.jpg) remains the same. If you resave the missing photos in as JPEG in MS Paint, it should ensure they are compatible. You may have to format the memory card and re-add the photos to make sure it will work,

I can't transfer pictures from my computer to my digital frame. When I connect my usb cable to my computer from my digital frame , the frame displays "Connected to computer. Use PC interface to copy files....


You can start copying pictures to SV811 digital picture frame if you get the message “Use PC interface to copy files.” Here are the steps:

Copy pictures, videos, and music between your frame and computer, using your computer's normal file copying tools:

1. Connect the USB cable from the frame to your computer
2. On your computer, open My Computer or Windows Explorer.

The picture frame appears as removable drives—one drive for each connected picture source in the frame, in this order: internal memory, memory cards, and USB devices.

3. Navigate to the pictures you want to copy. Then drag and drop them to the new location.
4. Unplug the USB cable to view your copied pictures.

Copying pictures from EasyShare software:


1. Install EasyShare software (free download at www.kodak.com/go/sw )
2. Connect the USB cable.
3. On your computer, open EasyShare software. Select the pictures in My Collection and drag them into the Picture tray.
4. In the menu bar, select File and then Copy to the Kodak Drive letter.

The picture frame appears as removable drives—one drive for each connected picture source in the frame, in this order: internal memory, memory cards, and USB devices.

5. Select the frame source to which you are copying.
6. Select Best for Digital Picture Frame to reduce the resolution of the pictures you are copying. Full resolution is unnecessary and quickly fills up the frame's memory.
7. Click Copy. Pictures are copied to your frame.
8. Unplug the USB cable and press “Home” icon to navigate to your copied pictures.
