Hi there, I have been trying to burn a cd or dvd with all my photos on to play on my tv. each time it doesnt work, although I can see them on my computer. I have gone into a shop and put them on a cd and it has then played on my dvd player? how can I do the same myself?
I have window vista home premium and have used the microsoft programme to burn the cd/dvd and using discs maxell cd-r and tdk dvd-r
thanks so much!

I'm not really tech savvy, but I do know that there is a difference between how a computer and a DVD player decodes the media for playback. Someone with more tech experience would be better able to explain it or maybe give you some direction on what to do next. :) Sorry I couldn't help you more.

How are you burning them to the media as far as what are you burning them as?
Data
Video
Pictures


It will make a difference how you burn them


What format are the pictures in?

BMP
JPG
PNG
TIFF
GIF
ICO


This could also be a reason
