Just purchased a small digital photo frame to display some of our holiday pictures. But struggled for an hour or so trying to get my images on to the SD Card. At first I thought perhaps a faulty card, I got some way through the copying then it jus stopped. Perhaps a faulty memory writer/reader , it is a new PC after all.

No , none of these. The card was formatted by default as FAT. A 512 file limit for those of us who can’t remember. Formatted with FAT32 and all was well 🙂 Still it caught me out and bet others too. Normally you insert into say a camera and device gets formatted with the system of choice. By I just had a fresh device and hadn’t given the format a second glance. Don’t say you’ve not been warned.
