We've added support for Samsung SPF Digital Photo Frames. It works with the following models:
The following models are not supported at this time:
The following models do not support Mini Monitor Mode, and so AIDA64 cannot use them as an external LCD:
You can enable the LCD device from AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Hardware Monitoring / LCD / Samsung.
For the most stable operation it is recommended to uninstall Samsung Frame Manager and Mini Monitor drivers, and install our own Samsung SPF LibUsb driver instead:
Our driver can directly communicate with the device, without interfering with Samsung's drivers or the Frame Manager software. Alternative solution is having the appropriate Samsung SPF Windows drivers installed (part of Samsung Frame Manager software), but that usage scenario is not guaranteed to work properly.
- If the device disconnects after a few seconds, enable the option Send keep-alive packet in AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Hardware Monitoring / LCD / Samsung
- AIDA64 will switch the device from Mass Storage Mode to Mini Monitor Mode if necessary. That transition could take up to 10 seconds. When the switch takes place, and there's Samsung Frame Manager software installed, Windows Aero may get disabled by Samsung Frame Manager's Mini Monitor feature
- AIDA64 has a built-in facility to prevent collisions with Samsung Frame Manager. In case it fails to work, and AIDA64 frames collide with Samsung Frame Manager frames, then terminate the process called "sam_controller.exe" via Windows Task Manager, or uninstall Samsung Frame Manager
- If Samsung Frame Manager is installed, but its Mini Monitor feature is not used, it's recommended to disable the Samsung Monitor device in Device Manager / Display Adapters.

Please let us know if you find any difficulties enabling or using this new feature. Also let us know if you've got another kind of LCD device that is currently unsupported by AIDA64. BTW, Futaba MDM166A VFDs and Yoctopuce OLEDs are also supported now by the latest AIDA64 beta.
