    Hello,

    Yesterday I bought a Pandigital frame. I tried to load video files, but the
    frame always complains that the file format is not supported. The user's
    manual has that .AVI files are supported, yet there are no further details.
    The frame did not come with PC software and no PC documentation, but a very
    thin user's guide. Thanks.

    Google the free app GSpot... drag any video file into the GSpot box and
    it will tell you what kind of codec is used in the avi. Some 'players' will
    not handle xvid, while divx is the more recognized. Find a file that works
    in the frame, and take notice of the codec using GSpot.. Compare it to
    the codec used in the non-working file.

    Well, it's a more complex problem than that. All AVI formats other than
    RGB are compressed in one way or another. The OP needs to find out what
    CODECs the frame supports (should be in the manual), & to convert to one
    of them. MJPEG is a likely choice.

    Good advice, LowRider. As I said in an earlier post. MJPEG might be a
    good choice.

    And if you look in the Technical Specifications table you should find
    it says Motion JPEG (AVI).

    There's only one or two non-compressed formats, & they're incredibly bulky.
    Very true.

    That'd be my guess too.

    True it may be, but it's also true that these days fuller manuals are
    usually available on the web. Why not try http://www.pandigital.net/support
    first hit on a web search for Pandigital Frames. I'm not saying the
    answer is there, but if it isn't op can post a question.

    Not a guess, that's what it says in the manual I have.
