    go to pioneer's website and download the software. the software will allow you to upload pics and then you burn them to a disc. i forget how the disc works but it's in the manual. you end up loosing a background and it's not great quality.

    if you disconnect the battery and re-hook it you'll get it back. when i did mine it was all grainy and not very good looking.

    do you got the owners manual still? it's been awhile since i done it and i know it explains it in there. i'm pretty sure you have to shut the unit off and then do something with the function and the unit will download the screensaver. i'll look in my manual when i get home and see exactly how it's done.
