Today's photos at 4 and up megapixels will get all of a few pictures on diskette and diskettes are not all that reliable. I don't use such but once a month it seems. If even that.
I must share I own one of these -> http://www.compgeeks.com/details.asp?invtid=DAZZLE-N&cat=CAM It's all of 15 bucks less shipping and takes a variety of memory cards.
Images can be scanned but with IRFANVIEW (use google.com!) I can convert the scan to the supported JPEG with ease.
Hope it helps.
I have been looking at some of the low-end (less than $100) devices that allow you to view photos on a tv. The different ones I'm seeing accept memory cards with digital photos on them. There is an older one from Microsoft that uses floppy disks. They all seem to indicate that they accomodate photos "captured" by a digital camera. Some specify JPEG format is necessary. I'm trying to find out, so fare with no luck, if these devices will handle photos or other images scanned into a computer, saved as JPEG's and then transferred to a memory card. None of the literature, and no one else I've talked with or contacted seems to be able to tell me. My plan was to give one of these devices to my parents with all their old photos scanned onto memory cards for easy viewing.
Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
Note, the Microsoft product does specifically say it will accept scanned photos, but because it's a little bit older technology, I was hesitant in purchasing it in favor of a newer product.
