Pandigital Photo Frame Instructions

By Nicole Vulcan

Digital photo frames allow you to display multiple photos as a slide show, or to have a single photo displayed for an extended period of time. Whether you're using a Pandigital brand or another brand, the first step is to put those photos onto a memory device. If you've saved your photos on your camera's memory card, simply remove the card from your camera and ensure the card is compatible with your photo frame. SD cards, select Compact Flash cards, MultiMedia Cards and various versions of memory sticks are typically compatible. If your camera saves photos on a hard drive or you have photos already saved to your computer that you want to use, you'll still need to save them to a compatible memory card before using them in the photo frame.

Things You'll Need

  • Memory card or stick

Transfer Photos From Hard Drive

Step 1

Connect your camera to your computer using your computer connector cable.

Step 2

Open the "Photos" app of your Windows 8 operating system.

Step 3

Swipe upward from the bottom of the screen, or right-click if you're using a mouse.

Step 4

Select "Import."

Step 5

Select the camera's hard drive from the list of devices that appear.

Step 6

Select the photos you want to import by clicking or tapping on the photos, or import all photos on the hard drive by selecting "Select All." This will create a file of the photos you've just imported, which will appear among the files and folders within the Photo app.

Step 7

Select the new folder and then select "Copy," or right-click and choose "Copy."

Step 8

Insert a memory stick into your USB drive or an SD card into your computer's SD card slot.

Step 9

Swipe inward from the right edge of the screen to open the File Explorer, or if you're using a mouse, point the cursor toward the upper right corner of the screen and then move the cursor down.

Step 10

Select "Search" and then type "File Explorer" into the search box. Click or tap on "File Explorer."

Step 11

Click or tap the name of the memory card from the left hand side of the File Explorer window to open it.

Step 12

Place your cursor inside the memory card's window and click or tap "Paste." The photos will then be transferred onto the memory card or stick. When the photos are loaded, you can unmount the card or stick.

Setting Up the Frame

Step 1

Plug in the frame by inserting the AC adapter cord into its slot on the frame, and then inserting the opposite end of the cord into a power outlet.

Step 2

Slide the power button to "On."

Step 3

Insert your memory card or stick into the appropriate slot on the outside of your frame.

Step 4

Locate the "Start Slideshow" button on the frame's screen and press "Enter." This will begin a slide show of all the photos on your memory card or stick.

Step 5

Press the "Menu" button to access the Home screen, if you want to display a single photo instead of the slide show that is currently playing.

Step 6

Select the "Photos-Manage" button.

Step 7

Tap on the arrow keys or the "Page Up/Page Down" arrows to scroll through the various photos on your memory device.

Step 8

Press "Enter" when you find the photo you want to display. You can still use the right and left arrow keys to scroll through other photos.
