Not sure if this is the proper forum to ask this, but here goes. I have a new HP computer with a built in Photosmart program for editing pictures. Also it has the Windows XP media edition. Anyway, I have been slowly copying old photos and slides to download onto DVD-r's to show them on a TV. I have no problem copying them, and they show on the computer just fine, but not on a DVD player. Even though that same DVD player played other DVD-r's. Makes me wonder why. I know not all DVD players play recordable DC-DVD's, but could it be the program itself that I used to write the DVD?
If a person bought a new DVD player that said it is compatible in playing CD's and DVD's, shouldn't it play them? One salesman told me I had to buy a photoshop program to copy these pictures. I wondered if that were true, or why my Photosmart isn't good enough.
