    Have you just copied the jpeg's over to your SD CARD from your PC? If you have you need to keep the standard directory structure that a digital camera would use...

    I guess to be more accurate I should have said that my images were in a directory called 'DCIM/100_NIKON'.

    No problemo :) Hope you get it sorted. :) If you copy the Sony memory stick's folder / directory structure too then I imagine it should work. BTW if you get a PCMCIA / memory stick adaptor your telly would be able to read the memory sticks directly. I'm guessing an SD card is alot cheaper than the PCMCIA converter though ;)

    ive actually ordered a pc card out of stock been waiting for it for ages could not wait anymore,

    so ordered a sd card from ebuyer a viking 256mb for around 17.99 quite good price i think.
    so if ive already downloaded onto pc, do i just make any folder up and name -+100_pana ?? and drag my pics into that folder? :confused:

    is there an idiots guide any where?

    thnx

    On the SD Card, create a primary folder (i.e. from root) called DCIM.

    Then create a sub-folder in DCIM called 100_SONY.

    Place your jpeg images in the folder /DCIM/100_SONY.

    Hopefully then your Viera should be able to display the images.

    Hi, in Steve Ps earlier reply he suggested a Memory stick/PCMCIA adapter.
    I have bought a SANDISK 6 in 1 adapter and when the stick inserted straight from the camera it says "This file type is not supported"

    Any ideas please??!

    many thanks

    The PCMCIA slot also doesn't support CF type II - eg. Microdrives, either :(

    Hi to quote myself from the original thread...

    I can only assume either one of two are possible reasons why you can't read your memory stick...

    1. The TV is not compatible with the multicard adaptor that you have bought.

    or,

    2. Is your camera saving images as 'EXIF standard JPEG images' that are sized between 64x64 to 8192x8192 pixels. I know some cameras can save images as a raw format so that minimises any possible compression issues associated with saving in the jpeg format.

    Does anyone know all of the supported file types?

    What about movie files from my computer such as MP4 or WMV or MPG or AVI?

    Never mind.
    I emailed Concierge and they only say that it can view unmodified jpg files.
