I have several thousand photos taken from my digital camera. I want to put a lot on a CD Rom to use as a slide show on my DVD player, and to show family that do not have access to computers. I have a program that will create a slide show on disc, but it only plays in the computer. The slide show starts with a button, and this cannot be accessed through the DVD player. Does anyone know of a good program, ( free hopefully) that will make a good slide show on CD Rom.
If you have XP then WinMovieMaker is reasonable - if you have XP SP2 then WinMovieMaker2 [which comes with SP2] is very suitable to begin with and neither cost anything and already take up space on your HDD!
Sorry - my post may be duff gen. Looks like WMM recorded discs will only playback on PC, which is what you don't want. Strange thing is; the lounge DVD loads the info and displays the folders etc but any amount of remote control button pushing won't get the thing going. The info I received when I asked my relative how they prepared their photo's to be played manually on the lounge DVD machine, was "I just used my PC" - and it works!. I now think they meant "I just used my PC with an additional program.." . Regret any inconvenience. I have been using Pinnacle Studio 8 for my photo presentations and it's quite good, but it costs.
