Photo Batch Reprocessing Tutorial

There are times when a few corrupt or incorrectly formatted photos will cause odd behaviors from digital photo frames or media players. While computers have powerful software and hardware to skip or handle these files, inexpensive electronics will often experience difficulties. This tutorial uses the free image utility FastStone Image Viewer to reprocess images in batch mode, which quickly fixes corrupt or incorrectly formatted images.

Display Photos In Sequence

To display photos in sequence, two things are needed:

  • Set the photo frame’s photo display sequence to “sequential” – refer to the photo frame’s user’s manual on how to do this.
  • Name the photos in a way that organizes them sequentially

Naming the photos properly is important since improper naming will cause the photos to not display in the expected sequential order. Be sure to name the photos using a consistent naming convention that is 8 characters or less. For example, name the photos img00001.jpg, img00002.jpg, img00003.jpg, and so on. The photo frame will display images like these in alphabetical order one after the other. Do not use photo names that are longer than 8 characters, such as my-image-001.jpg.

File name length does not affect random photo displays so there is no need to give photos any specific naming convention for random playback.

Some Photos Display More Frequently Than Others

This FAQ applies to Micca M1203Z, M1503Z, and M1709Z digital photo frames.

There is a new firmware released for the M1203Z, M1503Z, and M1709Z digital photo frame that fixes the issue where one or more photos are displayed repeatedly, or is shown noticeably more frequently than other photos even thought he photo frame is set to random mode. This issue occurs when there is 1000 or more photos on the SD card or USB drive.

The firmware update completely resolves this issue. Download links and instructions for installing the firmware are provided in the “Download” section of the M1203Z, M1503Z, and M1709Z product pages.

Deleted Media Files Still Show Up

If you’ve deleted some media files from a USB drive or SD card, yet the deleted files still show up, the issue is likely caused by the presence of Windows Recycling Bin or MacOS Trash Can folders on the USB drive or SD card. Fixing this issue requires emptying the contents of these folders permanently.

Warning: The purpose of the Windows Recyclin Bin and MacOS Trash Can is to allow you to recover previously deleted files that you later need. The steps below permanently empties these folders so you will not be able to recover these files again. Proceed only if you are certain that you do not need these files.

To empty the Recycling Bin folder created by a Windows PC, plug your USB drive into the PC, wait for the drive to show up in Windows Explorer. Right click on the drive and select “Properties”. In the “General” tab, click on “Disk Cleanup”. Place a check mark for “Recyclin Bin”, and click “OK”. This will delete the contents of the Recycling Bin on the USB drive.

For MacOS, there is unfortunately no built-in way to empty just the Trash Can on a USB drive; all Trash Can folders on all drives are emptied by default. To empty the Trash Can for all drives, plug your USB drive into the Mac, wait for it to mount. Next choose Empty Trash under the Finder menu or press Command+Shift+Delete. A pop up will ask you to confirm that you wish to empty the Trash Can.

Mac Computer Owners – Photo and Video Playback Issues

Mac computers are great but Mac owners often report odd behaviors when they share a SD card or USB drive between a Mac and non-Mac devices, including Micca digital photo frames and media players. The issue is most likely caused by the following:

If you are using a Mac to copy photos or videos to a SD card or USB drive, it will create a small thumbnail in the same folder as each image/video, preceded by a “._” in the file name. These extra files cause problems on non-Apple devices. There are utilities like this one:

To remove these extraneous files so that non-Apple devices can work correctly. It is also possible to erase these files without running a utility, such as described in the following web tutorial:

Photo frame with Micca USB drive freezes or stops playing photos

Issue Description: The Micca M1203Z, M1503Z, or M1709Z digital photo frame freezes after a while when displaying photos from the small black “Micca” branded 8GB USB drive. To confirm this issue, trying a different SD card or USB drive does not result in freezing.

Resolution: A small number of “Micca” branded 8GB USB drives may overheat and cause the photo frame to freeze. Please contact our support team and a replacement USB drive will be provided free of charge to fix this issue. To contact support, navigate to the product page for your photo frame model, and click on the “Support” tab to fill out the technical support form.

Photos show up as pixelated or takes very long time to load

If certain photos show up on the photo frame as pixelated and blurry but looks perfectly fine on a computer, it is most likely due to the photo being a progressive JPG image file. Progressive JPGs were created during the days of dial-up Internet to allow partial image loading on slow connections. They are obsolete and should all be converted to normal JPG files. While computers have powerful software and hardware to handle progressive JPGs, inexpensive electronics will often experience difficulties displaying them. Luckily, these files are easy to detect since they show up pixelated or takes a long time to load, This tutorial uses the free image utility FastStone Image Viewer to reprocess progressive images in batch mode, which quickly converts them to normal JPGs.
