Panasonic DMR-E55B dvd ram recorder problem

  joe95 13:38 07 Dec 2007

The machine won't play photo DVDs do I need special software to enable it to play them. I have tried Nero 6 with no success.
PC XPhome with all updates and 2gb of ram.

What does the manual say about viewing jpeg I have the es 20 and that only views photos on cd. How have youput them on dvd as a slide show or just as they are . If you make a slide show you can do this with windows movie maker which you have . Come back with some info

have tried running photo cds from Boots no good and I made mine as slide show both times recorder showed disc not compatible.

Hi Joe you could move your file into Windows movie maker and select save to my computer .Then on the Movie settings page tick other settings then from the drop down box select high quality video pal and follow the prompts .You can then burn that to dvd with a Freebie DVD flick
click here

If you want to try it with Nero do all as above but select DV-avi
You can also try your existing slide show in dvd flick it may well accept it

calmed down a little now, tried down loading but kept getting error message about a lost file when I opened it, I have been trying windows movie maker but I'm lost.At the moment I have a photo disc in my dvd drive and have got the photos in movie maker but don't know what to do now have been trying all morning, it's enough to drive me to drink,maybe this evening.
