Burning DVD

  Yimbo 16:24 08 Nov 2008

Perhaps a silly question - but - can you burn, say a short slide show, on to a DVD, and later, go back to it and burn a further sequence, or sequences - always of course assuming there's space on the disc. If this is possible, is there anything special that needs doing before the subsequent burnings?

So long as you're burning as a 'data DVD' then yes, you can use it in multisession mode, i.e. burn different files at different times, so long, as you say, the disk isn't full.

You can put on more slide shows, and you could add to and reburn the one that's there under a different name - but you can't just add to the existing one.

Ah but when you create a slide show is it not usually locked by file type to the software you created it with .If so you cant just burn as a data file also most players only play data files using there own software ie a file of photographs . You'd need to burn as a proper dvd to run the slide show
Yimbo yes you can Magix will do it it butalas its not free

Thanks folks - - But could I perhaps save, say 4 separate slide shows, and burn them all at the same time - i.e. one after the other in the same session? I'm using Roxio
