DVD Compatabilities

  piltdown 18:58 11 Nov 2005

I have been sent a DVD of family photographs from the USA and the DVD will not play on my player.
I now belive that it is not in a PAL formula.
What do I need to convert this DVD to PAL.
Can anyone help?

Does your DVD player have PAL/NTSC switching?
Or [you did not mention] if your PC is DVD capable then there is free software outhere that will do it.
A google search will reveal more.
What you may to be doing then is copying the files to computer after 'ripping' and then burn back to PAL.

Family Photes cons be on a DVD as simple JPEG files in which loading to your computer and copying back
will be simple.
The disk image could be in a dedicated slide show in which case it could be in VCD format - inwhich casr Windows Media Player will do it - Have you tried?
