Solved: Philips PhotoFrame ignores frequency setting for slide show

An article, posted more than 12 years ago filed in mac, problem, debug, philips, photoframe & solved.

My parents experienced a problem with their Philips PhotoFrame (8FF3FPB/00). Although the PhotoFrame was set up to present photos in a slideshow with a frequency of 1 photo every 30 seconds, photos were only displayed for about 5 seconds, no matter what frequency setting was used. My parents use a Apple iMac, and I do think that some hidden files/folders copied by the Mac were causing the problem. After I removed (as a Ubuntu user) all hidden files, and left only the JPEG files on the disc, the problem was solved.

Why?

Among the hidden files were:

I suspected that the .Trashes folder with 'trashed' photos inside were causing the problem, but I haven't been able to reproduce it by copying this folder back... nor with any other folder... anyhow, while the problem is still not completely understood, it has been solved.

Op de hoogte blijven?
