Slide Show
by RCF_Rose / May 27, 2009 8:10 AM PDT

You can make a slide show on a DVD disk using a free program such as this:

Flash Slide Show Maker

However it won't play in a free standing DVD player and display on a TV. It will play on your PC DVD player and display on the screen.

To make a DVD that will display on your TV you will most likely have to purchase a program and most of them are rather costly. Such as

[url-]Memories on TV

Nero makes a DVD slide show that is suppose to play in an ordinary DVD player but I've not ever been able to play the DVD in my player.

Digital Photos to DVD slideshow/movie
by kayne1--2008 / May 29, 2009 12:04 PM PDT

I have made slideshows/ movies and then cut a DVD using Windows Movie Maker. They play in my DVD players and TV but I've heard that some players are fussier. Movie Maker should be installed on your PC if its XP or Vista. If not, I believe you can download it free from MS.

Fussy DVDs

The type that is most universally successful in DVD players for TVs is DVD-R format. Most new DVD players will work with any format, but the older ones have trouble with DVD+R and any rewriteable.

I have used Photo DVD Creator to make DVDs that run in DVD players.


They have a free version that makes a nice show. It is lacking in help, but I played with it and got good results. They also have a "for purchase" version.
