    I realize this is probably a very basic question, but I have a SD card with some pictures (jpg if it matters) on it that I copied over from my computer at home. When I put in the Treo and go to Pics and Videos and look at the card, it doesn't show up. Do I have to put it in some kind of album format or something?

    That would be fairly sad as I'd like to transfer straight from my digital camera to the Treo to view on the larger screen and possibly even e-mail or something (which might totally work as my digital camera pictures would be huge, but I could see some kind of software to scale them down, without requiring a comptuer).

    Put the pics in the DCIM folder on the SD card. The files may have to be named starting with Picture_... and they may have to be 640x480, not sure though.

    Do I need something like Filez to do this? I don't see any folder in the SD card from just look at the applications on the card or in the photo application.

    I doubt the 640x480 as you can save pictures on the camera in 320x320 (or 320x240 can't remember which). So maybe it just has to be one of those camera supported resolutions.

    Is there anything like Blazer that I can use more quickly? For instance on a real computer I can take a browser and tell it open a file on the hard drive.

    I'm bumping. It's on the second page and you'd think it would be basic out of the box functionality to just pop in a card and view pictures if they are in the right format.

    Yeah, install FileZ and then you can browse to the card from th Treo. You can create a DCIM folder on the SD card from your computer, or with FileZ.

    For a test, I just used FileZ to copy an image from the DCIM folder and renamed it to "Test.jpg". I put it back in the DCIM folder, and the camera app saw it just fine.

    So, basically any JPEGs in the DCIM folder on the SD card can be seen by the Camera app.

    Did the image have to conform to any specific pixel dimensions? I mean if I move a 1600x1200 jpeg in there will the picture app be able to open it and just shrink it down in size for viewing on the 320x320 screen?

    I'd give it a shot, but I don't have Filez installed now. I have to add a few apps that I have sitting at home.

    It's too bad that the Picture and Video application can't just detect pictures anywhere on a card. This would be a pretty good hack for some enterprising developer.

    Larger images will be 'scrollable'... a simple stylus drag on the screen will scroll the entire pic. Very nice inherent functionality!!!
