Storing pictures on a Lumix DMC-Z27

by tnuck / August 25, 2011 3:56 AM PDT

I want to use my ZS7 as a camera that I can store pictures on as well. When I save pictures onto my memory stick / internal memory, sometimes they will show up so that I can view them and sometimes they won't. I also want to be able to put videos on it as well.

Does anyone know how to do this?

For example, my friends put some videos and pictures up on Facebook that I want to carry around on my camera so I can watch them. (I don't have a smart phone or this would be easy Silly ) Sometimes pictures work, sometimes they don't. Videos never work. Any help would be appreciated!

Folk have tried this before. Here's what you need to know.

Almost all cameras only understand what they created. If you take pictures or video from other sources you find these will not display most of the time on other cameras.

This is how things are today.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
