i want to make a photo slideshow for a dvd player that does not support photo cd but does support both vcd and svcd.

i took my jpg`s and ran them through tmpgenc with a 5 sec blank wav,converted to 352x288 25fps 4100khz bitrate 224.mpg files and burnt as a vcd with nero.

plays back ok on the computer but when i try to play in the dvd player all the photos are flashed quickly on the tv screen and its over in under a second.

any ideas on what im doing wrong? i followed the advice from click here

If you are using XP, download and install Movie Maker 2. Create your slideshow, even adding background music, on completion save in 'My Videos' and a WMV (Windows Media Video) file will be created.

Convert this file to MPeg 1 (VCD) via TMPGenc. Copy file to CDR as a Data file and try this out on your DVD Player. This method works on my Nokia player.

An alternative route is to buy Video Studio 7, or Pinnacle, £30 to £40. Prepare slideshow and convert to VCD within the program and copy to disc.

Movie Maker 2 is a free download from Microsoft as good as the others but it requires additional software to convert to VCD.

From the help files: Most recent DVD players work well with an HP memories disc. To play a memories disc, a DVD player must have the following capabilities:

· Be compatible with Video CD (VCD) format, also known as Compact Disc Digital Video.

· Be able to read CD-R or CD-RW media. The DVD user's manual usually (but not always), describes what types of media the player supports.

To interactively browse the pictures on a memories disc, the DVD player must support the Video CD 2.0 format. This is sometimes known as Playback Control (PBC).


Many older DVD players support CD-RW media only. The best way to find out what works is to try a memories disc on both types of media in your DVD player.
