Some online research here tells us that the DPFMate software controls file adding and deletion. Drag and drop won't work.
Also, here's a juicy tidbit about digital picture keychains that come pre-installed... WITH VIRUSES
(it turns out that Walmart and Amazon both retail ematic goods on their websites, too)

Let me explain why I'm bothering to post the above. The cwithabunchazeroes5 fault is a fault that happens with, among other things, older safe code and viruses. Back in the day, programmers programmed Win3.1 programs and applications without regard to how many bytes a process string needed, because Win3.1's Microsoft programmers didn't care. They didn't need to care because viruses back then were more like Rick-Rolling, just funning about, than they are today, where you hear about people stealing $Millions and getting 30-year prison sentences. I'm digressing,
Anyway, truly malicious viruses came along, particularly the buffer overflow attack virus, and Microsoft responded with the buffer overrun error to try to cut virus attacks off at the knees.
See, if you have a designated string length for a process you're running, like 32 bits, then the modern Vista OS looks at the size of incoming data and looks at the process string reserved for the data handling and says "no more!" if the string is too small, if the amount of data coming in is more than 32 bits. The computer is programmed at the very basic OS level to cut off computing for that string and return a cwithabunchazeroes5 error. This way malicious buffer overrun code, which is code that backpacks itself onto process strings with otherwise null zeroes in the strings denoting empty space, doesn't have chance to work its way further into your system to do really, really bad things. The cwithabunchazeroes5 error is the result of measures that are intended to keep your computer safe.
These digital picture keychains can be viruses and they may not be. The problem is, that dpfmate.exe program is written in generic C++ code and it needs that MFC42u.dll library file to work and that DLL is sending out code that is misbehaving. It might not be misbehaving with malicious intent. Or it might be. The only way you'd know is to run virus scans on the software to see, and preferably multiple scans, each from completely different scanners.
And I've been looking for generic keychain software, and there is some out there from sites like this (and don't install anything found on this page, it's shady!)
, but it seems like all of them test positive for adware or malware of some sort!
There is one software installation that seems most likely to not be malware and adware infested, and it's found here on the Tao Electronics website
. I checked and their site does have a valid digital certificate from Thawte, and they at least have a physical address in their contact information, so they seem legit (then again, Samsung is a very reputable manufacturer and they sold malware-infested digital picture frames)
. All those keyrings, man, from what I read on the Internet, they all pretty much have the same software in all of them. Maybe the Tao software will work on your ematic digital keychain, which, as far as I can guess from reviews and things, is just a generic digital keychain with no distinguishing features that would require proprietary or hardware-specific coding beyond that needed for any other Chinese-made digital keychain.
It's just that so much of that coding comes with crapware! Always check your sources!
