Unable to Add Photos to 730 RHR HDD
 
Today I loaded 1500 songs onto the 730 RHR HDD from a USB thumb drive without a problem. I then deleted the songs from the thumb and loaded about 50 .jpg photos onto it. When I attempted to add them to the HDD, the "add from USB" option was grayed out and I couldn't access the thumb drive. The manual says to size the photos to 240x158. The closest I could get was 240x180. Could this be preventing the system from seeing the photos? :confused:

Try leaving a SINGLE .MP3 file on the thumb drive, then try to connect USB.

I am guessing you cannot get around the SIZE constraint, however. I am doubtful the RHR is able to scale photos to fit the screen.

That was it Mark. A USB drive must have at least one .mp3 file on it or the HDD will not recognize it. The photo size I used was fine. Thanks much for that tip. :)

Nice! Glad that worked.

I heard that tip elsewhere, but never needed to try myself.

It does work. After spending hours reformatting my flash drive and copying pictures I saw this post. How stupid is that? Make a system that can recognize a flash drive without a "work around".

Thanks markp99!

Interesting. I was having trouble getting the pics to recognize and I added some songs to the flash drive as well as making sure the image files had jpg extensions. Then it worked. I also didn't see the bit about file sizes.
