I got one of those Sony picture frames as a gift and am having a problem getting a number of images to display on it ( max of 7 ).
My question is: can you write to a cf card from a computer ( macbook pro) to a cf card in a card reader, and if so how is this done..Having a heck of a time here.


thanks

Mine just shows up as a drive on my computer. I make a file and drag it on to the card. SHould work for you.

Is the cf card formatted for your camera or for OSX? That may make a difference.Look up what format your Sony frame recommends.

yeah, it should jsut be drag and drop. Is there a special "folder" that it needs to be in for your frame to find it? Or does it not even transfer over to the card at all?

Maybe use your camera instead of the card reader, in case it is a card reader issue?

Make sure the card is formatted as FAT (this should be acceptable to the picture frame) and just drag the images over into a folder that you have created on the card. Don't place the images into the root directory as it will only store a few files before issuing a disk full message - it's not that the disk is full, but the directory is.

Other thing you can try is substituting a USB thumb drive instead of using a CF card.

Bob, when you connect the card to your computer through the card reader, does the card show up on your desktop with a hard drive icon? If not, the card reader or cable may be malfunctioning, or the card may need to be formatted. Disk Utility (in the Applications > Utilities folder) should be able to do that.
