I just experimented burning a DVD of our digital photos so our grandchild can watch herself on TV in those tense moments in a two year old's life...

I used DVD+R, and all the photos were jpegs.

The DVD player connected to the TV said it could not read the disk.

I have a dual format DVD burner so I could try DVD-R, but I wondered if the problem is with the file format rather than the disk.

Has anyone had any success doing this?

Thank you for any contributions to a grandad's peaceful life...

IIRC, DVD-R/W is the most compatible format. If you stil have your DVD Players manual, check and see.

I just burnt a ton of photo's to the root folder on a DVD and it played fine on a friends DVD Player (Like a slide-show).

Hope this helps

Thanks Chill - that is very encouraging. I read somewhere that DVD+R was supposed to be compatible with most DVD players, but I can't remember where I saw that now.

I'll try the other format and see what happens.
