Q: digital solutions digital photo keychain

I got a digital solutions digital photo keychain for Christmas and it seemed easy enough. Plug into usb and software automatically downloads! But no ..my pc doesn't even register that I have plugged it in. I tried other suggestions to press the M button immediately but nothing. Does anyone have step by step instructions (that a pc dummy ..that being me) can understand? Thanks in advance!!!

Preferred Solution: digital solutions digital photo keychain

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I bought 2 VuPoint Solutions Digital Photo Keychains (viewer only--no camera). When I try to download pictures, the program (DPF Mate) says it does not support the compressed file type. My pixs are not compressed--they are jpeg. I also converted them to .tif and .bmp with no luck.

On a side note, my antivirus (Trend PC) says the program (DPF Mate) is a trojan and deletes it. Is this causing the problem?

I have a couple graphics programs that recognise .JPG but not .JPEG, although I believe they are identical (or almost so.) Try SAVE-AS .JPG from your graphics program and see if that will load even though .JPEG won't.

A:RED digital photo viewer for keychain

Most small digital picture viewers, like your key-chain one, do not need anything special on your computer. They just plug into the USB port and it appears as an external flash drive. Any downsizing, or cropping, or rotating would be done on another device, like your home computer. You just get the photos you want in the size and other modifications you want and then load the finished files into the correct folder of your plugged in digital viewer.

The more basic the digital viewer, the more you have to do externally.

By the way, SKU (Stock Keeping Unit) numbers are not useful outside of the company that is selling and stocking the device.

The "RED digital photo viewer for keychain" is actually more definitive in trying to find on the Internet, but there are a lot of devices that match that description. A company name and a little more detail would be better yet.

A:FC Digital Photo Viewing Keychain

You need the software for it, originally supplied on a mini-CD with the product apparently, but I can find no place to download it from. I wouldn't be too disappointed though as from what I've been reading, owners are far from impressed with it. Various and numerous issues like software wouldn't install, installs but doesn't actually work etc etc.

On one forum alone there were about 30 posts from different people in the same thread, all having problems with that device or it's software.

Hi i got a gift....FC digital photo viewer keychain it did not have a cd with it. first time when i connected to the usb and computer it was working and i loaded the pictures then i did not use it for 3 months. now when i connected it with the USB it is not charging and the computer is not even detecting the digital photo viewer. please help

A:digital photo viewer keychain

Welcome to TSG.
If you connected the chain per USB, it will show up in Explorer as Photoviewer. (as a drive in XP) You don't need a cd.
There is a zip file, but I clicked on the Photoviewer.exe file and the program comes up with a panel to move pictures from any folder.
Maybe you have to wait first, till it recharges the built-in battery, see how far the bar is on the viewer when plugged into the computer. I have successfully transferred pictures to it.
When not plugged in, you have to turn it on and push the arrows up or down to see the pictures.

I got the keychain as a gift a few years back and now I decided to use it. Don't have the box or any software (if any).... it's v2.0.

When I connect it to the computer, it pops up with a message "You need to format the disk in drive __: before you can use it, do you want to format?" I hit the "Format disk" button and the screen to format removable disk pops up. I hit "Start" and then get a warning that everything will be deleted. I click "ok" and then an error pops up "Windows was unable to complete the format"....

Not sure why.... trying to find a driver but don't see one.

i just got a used digital photo viewer keychain from a friend who no longer needed it. and they did not give me a disk or anything that would come with it. i asked and they said they did not need it. i go to add pics to the viewer and it pops up that i need to format. so i do, and it tells me it can not complete the process. then it pops up after closing that it may be a read only file and how to change it. i don't think these are meant to be read only.

i seen where there is a file i can get to install and get this viewer to work. is it possible to send the file to my email? or can i find the file elsewhere?

I just received a keychain with pictures already on it of my great grand kids. I want to copy them to my Win7 PC. It wants me to format the keychain first. Won't I lose all the pictures if I format it? Since I don't have the software on my machine already I can't do anything.

A:Digital Photo Keychain Won't Load software

The "Digital Photo Keychain", a pocket-sized digital photo frame, is (or should be) supplied with driver software on a CD when bought new. You need to install this driver software in order to transfer the pics to your PC.

Some brands of photo keychains already have the driver software built-in but it looks like yours doesn't.
Ask the person who gave you it if they have it's software.

Definitley DO NOT format it. That will make all the pictures disappear!

Would like to seek advice on the state of a Western Digital (Black?) 2 TB HDD (roughly 2 years old) which seems to be failing.
My storage system is set up such that an SSD is the primary drive while I have the WD hard drive and another 1 TB Samsung drive (5 years old) as secondary drives. I've installed Windows 7 on the SSD while games and other programs (Chrome, Desktop data etc) are installed or allocated on the Western Digital.

The symptoms on the drive started 2 days ago and are as follows:
- The first thing that was wrong was my desktop icons took ages to load (previously was instant, now takes up to 1 min plus)
- Maybe 5x significantly slower opening of some folders (the files within takes time to display properly), compared to opening files and folders on the Samsung (more or less instant, the WD loaded instantly in the past as well)
- Tried loading some games, takes significantly more time to load but do load in the end (e.g. Far Cry 4 from main menu in to the game)
- Steam games unable to update, receives Disk Write Error
- Chkdsk automatically started on Bootup for the WD drive and kept running everytime my computer reboots
I've tried the following fixes:
1. In cmd.exe, fsutil dirty query d: and found that my D drive was "Dirty"
2. Ran chkdsk /f /r d: to do a full chkdsk scan, discovered and restored roughly 4-5 files then it booted back to windows
3. Ran Malwarebytes, no malware discovered

This last Christmas my son sent me a digital photo frame. My problem. I don't own a digital camera.
My question.
Is there some way I can transfer pictures from my PC to the digital photo frame?

A:Digital photo frame

You'll need a memory card, say an SD card.

Plug the card into the frame and connect the frame to your PC via the supplied USB cable. If it doesn't have one, which the cheaper ones don't. You'll need to buy an SD card reader instead, this connects to your PC and then the card goes in that. You transfer the images onto the card at your hearts content and once complete plug the card into the frame and voila!

I have been curious about this and have asked many people and sites, but I can never get a sensible answer.

When I compare a digital photo (my camera is a Sony F505V) vs. a 35mm photo, the digital photo seems out of proportion. Kind of squat when viewing people so that people look shorter and wider (Squashed). THe last person I asked is a photography student who does mainly digital work. She said that the image ratios is 1:1.6, so I would need to resize my digital images to get a true 1:1 proportion.

1. Is this true about the ratio and the resulting image "defect"

2. What is the best way to resize the images. I have photoshop, so if that is the best method please send instructions.

Thanks in advance.

A:Digital Photo Proportions

does the sony have a zoom lens.
you get all sorts of proportions changing with different focal lengths.
50mm lens on 35mm is the standard - then as you go wide angle down to 28mm you will see all sorts of distortions - just look through the viewfinder at 28 mm and have somebody facing you with arms towards you.
also on telephoto you can squash distant things appear next to close things.

My old computer has all our digital photos, close to 600gb. I recently bought an iMac, and would like to use the new computer for photos, including access to old photos, but don't want to fill my 1TB hard drive. (the old computer no longer has internet access, I don't know how to fix that). I currently have the old photos also backed up via carbonite. Online searches recommended three locations to minimize risk of complete loss. I also found recommendations for a NAS drive, to allow storage and access with ease, and another source recommended optical archival DVD for long term storage. Some of those search results were from 5+ years ago, so I'm wondering if this is still accurate recommendations, or should I be looking at something else? I've had external drives fail in the past, so I am sort of frozen into inactivity at the moment, afraid to spend a lot of time and effort only to get something fail and lose photos. any recommendations for long term storage + immediate access/organization would be appreciated!

I have a Kodak DX 6340 and running the latest version of Windows 2000. I have the dock for the camera, not the printing dock but the one that Kodak said would speed up transfers. After having some problems with the dock I have decided to hookup the camera directly using the USB cord provided with the dock. I am using the latest version of Kodak EasyShare software and I don't really like it. To me it is very lethargic and clunky, for lack of better words, and doesn't offer a great array of photo editing options. When hooking the camera up via USB I do get the WINDOWS Recognizes New Hardware box and then following that get the box stating it recognizes that it is a Kodak DX6340. From what I read the camera would usually appear as a removable drive which it does not, also when going into the scanners and cameras folder in control panel it does not show that a camera is installed. It gives me the option to select the type of camera but my camera is not shown in the the list of Kodaks, it also gives me the option to use a disk but there was no disk with the camera when purchased. What I would like to do is use another program to view, edit, save, print and send by email my photos. I had Nero 7 Ultra Edition which included decent photo programs which had more options when editing than Kodak has. I also downloaded Nero Photo Show Deluxe 4. The problem I had with those programs is that although I liked them better than Kodak EasyShare I could not get those programs nor wind... Read more

Hi all,
I'm planning on building a computer for equal use between games, photo editing, and solid modeling. What I have in mind is a AMD 3700 (939), asus A8N-SLI deluxe (or maybe premium) board, and evga 6800GT vid card (1 to start). I know it'll be good for gaming, and I think it'll be OK for the solid modeling that I do, although this is not the ideal card for this. Does anyone have experience using and AMD setup for photo work? The adobe site lists Intel CPUs as system requirements for it's products, and I'm a bit worried that AMD won't cut it. I will be doing relatively basic photo editing, and possibly some simple video editing in the future, so I think the AMD should be OK.

Can anyone offer an opinion on this?


A:Digital photo-editing with AMD processor

Have you considered a dual core CPU such as the 3800X2? Intel CPu's are recommended for video editing because they have hyperthreading capabilities and the software is coded to take advantage of this. Hyperthreading is a single core CPU that can simulate two separate processors if the software is designed to run in parallel threads. A dual core, obviously, would take advantage of this coding more effectively than hyperthreading and should fulfill the requirements you have as well as being a superior gamer. Plus a 3800X2 overclocks like a banshee.
