Having posted a question re this model on this site, due to really POOR Pany support, and finally getting no good followup by pan; I finally demanded a high-level engineer type. Surprise, they actually tested my problem and admitted I uncovered a bug in the product. For all members HERE I'll summarize. This model has a SD card slot and (see pg 8 of ths manual (also viewviable online as a pdf) it is supposed to be possible to place JPG file on the SD card and create a slide show...just in the way it can be done on a CD for the DMR. Page 8 of the DMR maniual clearly shows creating a placing your JPEGS in "folders (like XP). But, no matter how I format the SD card (using the DMR, or via a Snadisk adaptor and XP commands (using FAT 12/16/or 32) format)...the result is the same...that isJPG's placed in the ROOT of the SD card ARE viewable on the DMR as a slide show...but ANY folders on the SD card AND the JPGs in them are INVISIABLE to the DMR-75!!! By the way, the same instructions, methods etc used with a CD DO function perfectly on the DMR-75...finally Panasonic tested and confirmed this (for me big) bug. I'm hoping the will correct this via a Firmware upddate...I'll bet it's a rather simple fix..if that's their mindset...else, being that my CMR75 is very new, I'll seek a refund or compensation etc. DO ANY OF YOU HAVE A DMR-&% or similar MODEL ...CAN YOU TEST THIS ON YOURS????? THANKS TO ALL!
