Trying to add some wallpaper to my display. Put a .jpg in the root of a flash drive, verified size was within the parameters. go to the import wallpaper page and it says no images found on the flash drive.
Tried it with a different image and a different flash drive, no joy.
Wondering if a 8GB flash drive is too big for the system to recognize maybe? Anyone seen this?
Thanks!

The one thing not mentioned in the instructions is the format of the USB drive. Most of these types of things require the USB drive to be formatted in FAT32. In case you need to know how to do that: https://www.disk-partition.com/articles/format-exfat-to-fat32-ntfs-5740.html

Wallpaper Setup
• When importing wallpaper files, the image must be in the USB flash drive’s root directory. Images in a folder cannot be imported.
• The file name must be fewer than 64 characters.
• The file format of the image that can be imported is BMP (bmp) or JPEG (jpg).
• The individual file size limit is 2 MB.
• The maximum image size is 1,920 × 936 pixels. If the image size is less than 480 × 234 pixels, the image is displayed in the middle of the screen with the extra area appearing in black.
• Up to 255 files can be selected.
• The wallpaper setup is limited while driving.

Ahhhh...
All is right wit the world. LOL...
User error. I figured out that the image size was for landscape mode. My image was 640x960. Numbers were OK but the orientation wasn't. Just resized it and it worked fine...

Soon after buying my 2019 Insight I downloaded some images from a flash drive. All went well for 10 months.

Now, suddenly, images that have filled my screen have shrunk to small, center located images. I don't remember doing anything to cause this change.

Any suggestions ?

Did this just occur recently? Were you trying to change the image, or did the car/screen start up with smaller, relocated images?

Wonder if you may have new software version, after visiting dealer a few weeks ago for new battery (?). When you follow this path, do you have build number and kernel version like the following image, and what amount of uptime is listed: Settings --> System --> About --> Build Number and Kernel Version

To cold to go out right now. Maybe I should just delete present images and download again as a test in the AM ?
Another tip I read on CivicX (tho don't know if it will work/apply to Insight) is that pressing on the Day/Night hard button (the one on the left of infotainment screen that looks like sun and moon) several times helped restore their wallpaper/clock.

My Build Number and Kernel Version match your photo.

I deleted five images and reloaded three (but could not load a 4th or 5th image for some reason---all five were from my original source).

Still seeing small, centered images on dash. And pressing Day/Night button has no effect.

I will try loading new images from a different source.

This from the Owners Manual

"The maximum image size is 1,920 × 936 pixels. If
the image size is less the image is displayed in the
middle of the screen with the extra area appearing
in black"

Doesn't make sense to me. For 10 months I got full size images on screen from jpg files that varied from 1900x1870 to 1132x780.

Yes, similar notes/conditions are recapped in post #2. It's why I asked if something changed in your software, as it seems the system is 'reading' your file as smaller resolution than previously. If your version hasn't changed AND if you have high uptime, might be worth doing an infotainment reboot to see if that resets the way your images are read. - https://www.gen3insight.com/forum/290-2019-honda-insight-user-interface/2602-infotainment-system-restarting-rebooting-instructions.html

In Post #2 AMCooper63 says "If the image size is less than 480 × 234 pixels, the image is displayed in the middle of the screen with the extra area appearing in black"

The Infinity Owners Manual doesn't mention a required minimum image size to get a full-size image, so the Manual's description is meaningless (I don't know where the 480 x 234 figures came from)

I'm a bit leery about trying that reboot thing. Maybe later.

Yeah, I suppose. I just now downloaded 2019 and 2020 Insight Owners Manuals (from honda.com) and both have the same paragraph I quoted in my Post #12. That paragraph makes no sense.

Mystery solved. AMCooper63 was referring to the LX (Color Audio) wallpaper operation and I have only been looking at the EX (Display Audio) wallpaper operation (which is missing any small size limitation info)

Sorry for confusion
