    My mom recently got my aunt one of these. The only problem I'm having is it will not let me format it to upload pictures. Also i'm not sure if i should. Usually when you format a device everything on it is deleted. Software included. So my question is this, should i and how can i format this device. After i try to format it pops up and reads "unable to format device". What should i do?

    In my experience you can treat a digital camera more or less like a hard drive and just copy the pictures onto your PC. The Digital Photo Viewer, however, is not like that. To get pictures onto the DPV, you need to use the provided software. It lets you pick the pictures and then "synchronize" your selection with the DVP. You don't need to format the DVP's storage media as it's not supposed to be DOS/Windows or Mac format. You get to store a given number of pictures, 64 in my case. Notice that these are viewed on a square or squarish screen, and that the pictures are cropped before they're shrunk. It's advisable to either add to the thinner dimension or crop to your own taste before selecting the pictures. Various viewer programs (not that provided with the DPV) will do this, including the freeware IrfanView.

    You should have the software on a mini-CD which came with the keychain. If you don't have it, you can probably find it on the Web if you make a search for digital photo keychain support files. If all else fails, give me your email and I'll try to send PC_AP_setup.exe.

    Just sent you the software file. Only problem is that your server may refuse the post as too big. Let me know. It can be chopped up.

    Unfortunately, a problem will take a while to solve as I am going on vacation early tomorrow morning.

    I'd remove your e-mail address unless you like spam.

    You will probably have to click on "report" and ask a mod to remove it for you.

    You save them to your hard drive then open them from hard drive with viewer.
    You don't save or send to viewer.

    I'd be getting rid of your e-mail address if I were you.

    There are way too many posters in this thread to even try to split them into their own threads, none of the new threads would make sense. If anyone else has a problem, you need to start your own thread. It's way too difficult to assist multiple people in the same thread.
