Getting Photos Onto My Digital Picture Frame...

Hey guys,

I just got the kodak easy share sv811 digital picture frame for Christmas. I have a question though for anyone familiar with these things.

I know they accept memory cards from your camera...but, what if my photos are no longer on the memory card, but are now on the computer? What do I have to do? Buy a USB flash drive, throw all the pics onto there (I guess buy a 2 GB flash drive) and then stick that drive onto the frame via the USB port?

I have also heard something about a USB memory card reader or something.

Any help would be excellent. Thanks.

You should be able to use the same transfer application to put the pictures back on the memory card. I know my Canon digital camera allows that.

Kodak website says you need to throw the pics on one of these.

Secure Digital (SD), Multimedia Card (MMC), MEMORY STICK (MS), XD-Picture Card (xD), COMPACTFLASH (CF)

But actually look at your instructions and your frame to be sure what will plug directly in without a converter.

I picked up the 7 inch Kodak for the mother in law. It did not have any internal memory. I suppose I could have inserted an SD card into the frame and connected it via USB and then transfer, but my printer has an SD card reader/writer, so I just inserted an extra SD card I had into the card slot on my printer, did a drag and drop of the pictures and an MP3 that I wanted on the card, then inserted the card into the frame. Figured that was easier than jacking with the USB on the frame and having to potentially do that multiple times.

As stated by others, you should also be able to transfer pics back to the SD card that's in a camera through the USB as well, but I'm assuming you should be able to connect the frame via USB cable and transfer to the frame that way.

You guys mean connecting the camera to the computer via the USB, and dragging and droping pics onto the memory card?

Well, it works to get the pics on the card, but once I insert the memory card into the frame, it can recognize the picture, but the photo doesn't show up.
