    Hi D, I think your problem might be that xp is set up for ntfs, which can be changed to fat, don't ask, hopefully somebody else will come in with some info., I was also wondering if you get text up ok in dvb mode, when I press the text button nothing happens, regards.

    I think the pictures have to lurk within a formal directory structure as mentioned in that thread. Can you not format ur memory card in your digital camera (this should format to FAT16 I think) then copy the images across into the relevant directory?

    Hi D, regarding the text, go to ch.9 in dvb mode and just wait for text to load, I'm such a dumbo, hope you get your piccy query sorted out, regards.

    Hi guys,

    The FAT option on your PC is FAT16, you're correct in that XP tends to be setup to use NTFS but as i understand sd cards can only be formated in either FAT(16) or FAT32. The problem i would assume is that either the photo format are not supported or folders are not supported.
    Try to make sure the photos are in jpeg format (it will have a .jpeg or .jpg extension) ,as its the most common format in use. Try to make sure the photos are in the root of the sdcard (i.e- NOT in any folders, as the plasma may not support directorys)
    Also it's unlikely but make sure you can read the files back from the SDcard, might have a corrupt card?
