    So,
    I have a sharp gx30i phone which in turn can save pictures taken with it on an SD memory card. If I put the card into the slot on the front of the plasma all it says is that there are no viewable images. Take the card out and it says card not inserted properly. Anyone any idears why I cant view the photos on the the plasma? :lease:

    well, I think the images are bitmaps, actually come to think of it the screen says jpeg viewer so that might actually have answered the question. If i had a normall digital camera with an sd card what type of images do they capture or can you choose how the pictures are taken so as to make them compatable with the Vieras sd card Viewer?

    Digi cameras normally save piccys as Jpeg, I use xd cards and have a PCMI card to plug into front of viera and it works great.

    your need to find out what images the screen can display.

    should say in the manual. See if your phone can take differnet types. take one of each and then see if it can read any of those.

    No probs mate :thumbsup: I'm guessing you have two issues... PE30 Viera's will only view jpegs, those jpegs have to be stored in a formal directory structure (that all cameras use) that your phone probably doesn't support.

    Hope you sort it soon, the slide show feature is really cool to use :cool:
