    There are a lot of different ways of creating images in Graphics Composer and each different 'format' has different ways of rendering the image on the display. You talk of having a FAT formatted card, but the command you are using is for RAW, perhaps look at the Display Image Icon from card (FAT) command.

    Also search the forum, this has been described in greate detail in the past.

    Perhaps you can try downloadin the latest version workshop and use Graphics Composer 3 which is contained within it. The .TXT file created by the new Graphics Composer is much more detailed and lucid about the correct way to produce an image using each possible build option from GC3.

    There is also a much more detailed GC3 manual coming, but it's not yet quite ready

          Did you remember to copy the GCI file to the uSD card (or set it to be placed there in GC)?

          The uSD card is definitely formatted as FAT or FAT16 (NOT FAT32)?

          You have 'inited' the card in your code (if it wasn't inserted at power on)?

          There is an example in the scripts\picaso SGC folder FAT.4DScript in Workshop click File, Open Samples to navigate to it. Of course you will an MB5/CE5 or other serial adapter to use that example (you could of course just copy the GCI part of the example and do your own commands, but I don't think that's your problem)
