I have been trying to copy photo files to a memory stick to play on my TV.
Problem no 1 is that some photos will not display on the TV although they appear to have copied to the mem stick correctly. I have checked the file properties and they seem to be exactly the same as other photos that do display.
Problem No 2 is that in the process of copying the files they end up in a different order. I cannot find any way of sorting them into the order I want.
Any help would be appreciated
Thanks
John Robb

When the photos don't display, is there a blank screen where the photo should be, or does it act as if its not even there. ?

The order - what you can try is re-naming the photos in numerical order.
Eg> 001,002,003,004 etc, if going by names of the photos, sometimes they "re-adjust" to suit the device they are being played on.

When displaying thumbnails all photos appear but when playing a slide show a blank screen appears for odd random photos. Have tried renumbering as suggested but that does not appear to work.
Cheers and thanks

can we assume the TV is the type that has USB slots, and USB devices can be plugged directly into the TV.( if so what brand/model) OR is the device you are playing through connected by some other means ?

Something like a WD Live TV (http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.asp?driveid=735)

Windows 7 will always sort your files into alphanumerical order and this auto-arranging cannot be turned off, unlike earlier versions of Windows.

Don't know about your display problem, maybe the above "feature" has a bearing on it, or maybe file/picture size (too big, file handling in tv cant resize?).
