Photos to CD

I am using XP pro and Nero 5.5.
How do I transfer my photos from Digital camera etc which I have on my HD as JPG files onto CD.

I have tried but Nero changed them to DAT files and I cannot access them.

I did it before on my old machine using Easy CD creator, this is not compatable with my newer PC.

It must be easy if you know how.

Don't know why Nero would change JPG files to DAT files. I use nero for same purpose and they are copied to CD as JPGs. I use WIN98se but can't see that would make any difference.

Have you tried XPs built in CD burn program I have used it on a friend's PC and it worked very well.

My last was on win98se which was fine also.

No to the XP version, how do I locate the program??

not sure about xp pro but in xp home i just right click the file in my pictures go down to send to and
click on cd/rw an icon will appear in your taskbar
saying files ready to be written to cd click on this
a window will open up showing the files then just click on write these files, just make sure you have a cd in your drive before you begin

ericmax's idea looks OK to me but I simply drag and drop into my CD-RW. I have a shortcut of all my drives on the desktop so I can open up the file which contain my data and drag it over the CD-RW shortcut, works in 98SE and XP Home.

If you want to save them for storage just, choose the Data CD option and drag and drop them in the Nero interface. If you want to make a Photo CD so that you can view them on your TV via a DVD player, choose the VCD option in Nero. There is a step by step guide in the Nero help files.

...or there is an option in Easy which defaults at end of burn to either only read with Easy or with other software.

My version of Nero is 5.5.7.2
I tried the VCD option in that, it was there where it changed the format for some reason.

If I put an blank CD in the Writer it fails to recognise it.

I will try the suggestions given and see what happens.

I do want to view the photos on mine and other PC's.

Not sure what you mean by Easy, MichelleC. If you mean Easy CD Creator, then I can't install that on XP, but did use it on my old PC and have found that I cannot view them now. Wiered.
