You might want to do a Google search on the Vendor and Product IDs
to see if anyone has worked on them. Part of the problem is that the
windows software may change the image file format before uploading
it to the photo frame. It may also do other image processing as
well. It would be nice if they were configured to act like USB
storage devices, and used standard image formats so you could just
resize the picture and upload it. (Maybe the ones that will accept
memory cards act that way?)
