When putting images in a PCMCIA card for use in a sharp LC-20B2U aquos tv I receive an error "no image on card", why?  Is there a specific image format I need to use for the image files.  So far I have tried jpeg, .bit, and .png formats.  I have formatted the card.

The Sharp LCD line requires that the memory card be formatted using JEITA's DCF (Design rule for Camera File system) specification.  If you've simply copied image files to the memory card from your computer, you may be able to manually created the directory structure needed to meet the DCF standard.  (If a digital camera formatted and stored the images on the memory card, it's most likely completely formatted correctly.)

From the Sharp Operation Manual for your model TV:
"Images that have been recorded on the memory card using a digital camera or other device and that conform to the DCF standard* can be played back in CARD mode.
*DCF (Design rule for Camera File system) is a standard of the Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA). This standard specifies the image file format used for images shot with a digital camera."

With the information below, you should be able to create the folder structure and filenames that are needed.

From WikiPedia's page on the DCF standard:
"The root directory in a digital camera contains a DCIM (Digital Camera Images) directory which contains possibly multiple subdirectories with names such as "123ABCDE", and no two directories may have the same three digit code. The alphabet characters often refer to a camera maker. Each image has a name such as "ABCD1234" for image number 1234."

Hope this helps.

Just for clarification (and having reviewed the technobabble I wrote here weeks ago), simply create the required folders on the memory card using your computer--assuming that your camera didn't already create them.  

Create a folder on the card named "DCIM".  In the DCIM folder, create a folder that's named with any three digits and and four letters (i.e., "321ASDF").  You can create multiple folders here if you want, but no two folder names can start with the same three digits.  Inside these one or more folders, place your picture files (usually JPG files).

This is the format that's required by the Sharp Aquos TVs.  Good luck.

Sorry for the delayed reply.  This one sort of slipped my mind.  Thanks for the help!
