Default Problem with photos to DVD-R or CD-R.

Have you not considered sending them a USB stick, slightly more expensive but smaller and they can send it back for erasing if need be.



Thanks. Believe it or not, I have older friends that would not even
begin to know where to put that USB stick. (It reminds me of the old
medical suppository joke.) Moreover, some of them live far away, even
overseas, so that my contact is by snailmail.

Once again, thanks for the gracious and helpful advice.

Default Problem with photos to DVD-R or CD-R.

Thanks a lot. My problem is with my older friends who have no
computer and want to see the photos on their TV sets via their DVD
player.

I tried something new today. I burned the photos to a DVD+R as a
DVD, and the results are weird. Under "scenes" playback, I got an
out-of-control slide show that did not respond to stop, next, etc,
but just kept on going. Under "play", each photo started as a
close-up, and then zoomed out to the full photo frame; all
automatically and with no control possible from me.

Frankly, I am ready to quit. It is just not worth the effort.

Thanks again, all, for your help and kindness. It is time for my
strategic retreat.


You mentioned in your initial post that you're using Picasa. Not
having such handy, I don't know what 'stuff' it adds to the CD / DVD
other than pictures. However, you might try copying only pictures -
outside Picasa - to the root of a CD / DVD and see if that will play
properly.

I had a similar problem - got a USB drive full of pictures from a
cousin, and passed copies of it along to other family members. One of
the members mentioned that they could only see one picture, so I
dutifully pulled out another USB drive, copied pictures to it, and
since we were going to visit them anyway, took it to them. Turns out
the two drives were identical, and the issue had more to do with the
fact that whatever software had created the collection in the first
place, and whatever was being used to read it, had different
expectations.

May I suggest a Dropbox account? Just send them a link to a root folder
and they can navigate from there. A free one should go a long way. I've
tinyurled such a link:

Some of his friends do not own/use computers, so DB is not a solution.
A cross platform, system blind DVD photo disc is the only workable
option for the bulk of his recipients. He just has to find a way to
burn those photo discs without built in problems.

Not hassle free for him apparently, if you read the above. Further: My
guess is that most of his costumers has a computer with internet access...

Hi,

I often find the need to send photos by discs,and have noted a problem.
I use Picasa as my photo software. When I burn photos to DVD-R or CD-R,
they play back nicely on my PCs. However, when I try to view them on my
TV set via an outboard DVD player, I get the message that the
correctly-named photo group is there, but they do not appear. Instead,
I get an on-screen notice that no file is found.

How can I burn edited photos from my hard drive to a CD-R or DVD-R,
which will be viewable on a DVD player to a TV set?

Thanks in advance.

Mort Linder


What software and what disc data format are you using to burn these
CD-R and/or DVD-R photo albums?

I have found that the most versatile software for this sort of job is
Roxio Toast, which is, Mac only. Toast will give you the option to burn
a cross platform "Photo Disc" with full resolution images and
automatically generated slideshows. I am sure the has to be something
similar for Windows.

Thank you Duck. I have been juryrigging this procedure for years and
now you've given me a reason to finally buy Roxio Toast!!
