I had this idea that I could create a presentation as a series of JPEGs and display it on a TV screen using the video out jack on the D700. (The TV I have in mind is rather old and doesn't do HDMI, but it has an RCA video in jack.) All this worked fine when I wanted to display JPEGs (or even NEFs) that I had taken on the card in the camera.
But then I tried writing the JPEGs for my presentation onto the CF (in my computer). I was able to copy the JPEG files, but when I put that CF into the camera it said it was not formatted.
Well, OK, I thought. I'll just connect the USB cable to the camera and my computer and copy the JPEG files from the computer to the CF in the camera. No dice. It appears that the camera's memory (on the CF) is Read Only.
Any suggestions, or am I just out of luck?

The cameras use a specific directory structure on the cards. While you can mimic that layout, the cameras are also picky about the files themselves. If the JPGs have been edited, there is close to a zero percent chance of the camera reading them.
Unfortunately, you are mostly out of luck. However, check the TV to see if it has any slots to read the memory card.
