Hello, I have a bit of a conundrum. I am attempting to print off pictures in a store kiosk (the instant print stations at places like Walmart & RiteAid). It scans for a few seconds and continually pops up an error of "no images found on your device." There are hundreds of photos that I painstakingly transferred to my WD external hard drive for the purpose of printing the photos. Is there a program I can remove or something I can alter on the device itself to make this process work? Or... am I going to have to attempt to transfer them all to a flashdrive instead? Please help if you can. Thanks so much.

Hello,

I have not read the word conundrum on this forum for years, the best was a sticky wicket. This is impressive.

Can you open the pictures on the hard drive from your computer? What format are they?

All the people I know who printed pictures from a fast print facility used a pen drive or a CD ROM.

Thank you, Ambucias 1

Thank you, haha. I can open them on my computer. I am not sure what format they saved in since they are all titled. I may just try to find a zipdrive and load them on that. Is there a simple way to view the file formats and alter them? I apologize for my seeming computer illiteracy. I'm more familiar with altering word documents.

Right click anywhere on the window where you have that images-->view-->details-->under type-->you can see what format the image was
Looks like all of the photos are JPEG and PNG file types
How do I unzip the folder? Again, apologies for my ignorance. I'm sure many of the suggestions are common sense to someone well versed on tech but I have unfortunately always fumbled with it.

What program did you use to transfer the photos? What format are they in?

Thank you
@Computertech! There is no folder or files to decompress (unzip).

@Mal. Looks like the printing machines in retail stores do not like to read hard disks, you are best to use a pen drive.
Thanks. That's good to know. Thanks everyone for the assistance and information.
