I was gifted an Aluratek digital photo frame (Model #ADPFD10F). Nice frame except for having to sneakernet picture updates.
Though I had never used the
g_mass_storage module on the pi zero I had read a little about it and found a couple of fairly straightforward tutorials. I followed this tutorial over at MagPi.
Everything seemed great. I was able to connect the pi to the usb port on my tv, update the shared folder from my laptop, and watch the folder refresh with more photos on my tv. The same goes for when I plugged the pi into my laptop.
After a brief moment I was alerted that I had plugged in an external drive. This was not the case, however, for the photoframe. The frame would recognize that a usb device was plugged in but stated there was "No File Found".
I emailed back and forth with Aluratek's tech support but they were unable to help.
After some experimentation I did find that the photoframe will only display images from the first partition of a drive. i.e. I formatted a regular sandisk usb drive into two partitions and only pictures from the first partition were displayed.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
Still fairly new to some of these concepts so if any additional information is needed from me I am happy to provide to the best of my abilities.
