I am having problems with burning photos to CD and then playing back on my DVD player. I have burned the discs as normal and when I play back some of the images are missing and I get a black screen until the programme resumes. The indicator on the DVD player is counting down to each image although black. The disc plays well on my computer and older discs play O.K. on my DVD player. Any suggestions would be appreciated Regards Carper
Thanks for your replies. I have made discs using Roxio EMC8, Nero, Ashampoo, CD burner pro and Kodak easy share all with the same result but good for the blank disc industry. I think there is something in what rodrigues says about size of files. I have recently changed my camera to 5mp from 3.2 and all the photos are in maximum resolution so I am wondering if this might be the culprit. Anybody any ideas on this. I think I will try another set of shots at a lower resolution and see how that goes. Thanks again. Regards Carper
If you think of how many dots there are on a TV screen (less than a million, I think), there's certainly no need for high resolution for images on a DVD. Depending on your photo software, you should be able to re-save your images at a lower resolution, to see if that's the culprit.
Sorry Carper, I only do it on a one-off basis, using Irfanview. Have to wait for someone else to respond on that one.
But, are you creating "slide shows" on your DVDs, or have you got a domestice DVD player that can read .jpg files without needing them to be converted? I always use the Roxio "create a slide show" option, and I assume it compresses the files. Never had a problem with playback on my Panasonic player.
Thanks for your replies. My problem did prove to be that the pictures were too big for my cheapy DVD player although they did play back on a better Sony. I batch reduced then very easily with a programme I didn't know I had. It is a programme by Visulizer Image Group try click here I hope this might be helpful to others. I think I can now click the resolved link. Regards Carper
