I am currently using nero 5.5 to burn my digital photos to vcd format.I have a Liton 52327s,but every time i complete a burn which is always successful according to the nero software,but it wont play on my dvd player.I know that other vcd's do play on the dvd so i am wondering if there may be something wrong with the liton burner(but there shoud'nt be as it burns music cd's ok). The problems occur when i add the files i want to burn,I go through the whole process apparrently successfully,but they just wont play.What am I doing wrong?
Audio and video are different types of burning, so just because it burns audio, it doesn`t mean it is burning video ok. However it is probably as woodchip says, not all dvd`s play everything, i have one of the first LG`s and all it plays is original dvd`s or cd`s ,but the latest much cheaper one`s play anything.
Could be that your DVD player cannot handle a multisession CD that is still open. Try closing the CD and see if it reads on the DVD. I presume you can read the VCD using the drive that wrote it? i.e. on the PC.
I think you need to burn them as a Slideshow and not as separate pictures. I have the same burner as you but I use Ulead DVD Pictureshow to make slideshows. You can have up to 1900 pictures on a CD. You can also use Irfanview (free) to make a slideshow then use Nero to burn as a Vcd, but you can only have up to 99 pictures per CD. As pointed out before not all DVD players will be compatible though but I have not had a problem with that yet.
Thanks for all your replies,I think ennuye is close with having to burn from a slideshow so I have now used the software I got with the digital camera as dadyassa recommended and made a slideshow.I then burned the slideshow to disk using the software I got with the camera(not nero).This time I thought I'd solved the problem,I put the disk into my dvd player and it started to play, but all I got was the advertisement for the software i got with the digital camera and then nothing.
Siouxah1,I looked at the contents of the cd and found all but one of the files you said should be present.The EXT file is not present,CDI is empty,Segment had 25 photo files,Mpegav has one Avseq01 file.So it is certainly burning something to the disk,but still can't achieve the final result.
