I recently purchased a cdrw so I could store all my digital pictures on cd , I managed to burn all my pics onto a cd (NERO) which was suprisingly easy....however when I came to play the disc on my DVD it played ok and reconised it as a VCD but only in black and white......I have no NTSC function on my TV or DVD, and have been advised this is the reason why.....is this true??
I could be off-mark with solving your prob but as far as I know Pal & NTSC don't matter with mpeg, it's only avi which necesitates that conversion to read. So your lack of colour could be something else.
Don't know if this has anything to do with it but are your pics jpeg? I purchased a DVD player on Friday. It specifies that it plays jpeg. I put my photo backup CD in just to see what happened because the photos are in different folders not individual pics or a slideshow.
It opened the folders and played them all in colour as a slideshow. I can also open the individual folders and play those separately.
I used EasyCD to make the backup disc doing nothing special other than saving them to CD rather than a floppy.
My Player instructions book states all files must be extended by 'JPG', 'jpg', 'JPEG', or 'jpeg' and compressed in format 4:2:2 or 4:2:0.
Don't ask me what compressed format is ! I must just have been lucky.
