Storing digital photos on CD-R

by itforsenior / June 10, 2013 9:08 AM PDT

I want to store groups of photos on CD but they do not transfer in the exact order of the original, so title frames are out of place. I guess I cannot control this?

Do a group rename once in the order
by glb613 / June 10, 2013 8:38 PM PDT

you want. It will give each photo a new name plus a number. When files are burned to a CD/DVD, the default setting is to put them in either numerical or alpha order.

The order is sorted by name, date, etc. If you put them in some player software you can change that but I'm left to guess what you are viewing this CD with.

I have my photos in albums in Kodak Easyshare. One small album has a title photo at the top. When I burn a CD of that and play it as a slide show on the same PC (Windows XP Home SP3) the title photo is at the bottom. This was a late addition to the Easyshare album, so I suppose they are burnt in date order.

(NT) So you are not using Windows Explorer to view this CD?

Thank you. The photos stored in Easyshare are listed by date stored. The header photo is a later date so will obviously burn last.Solution---burn header photo separately first then album contents? Re my other post, photos are in numeric then alfa order. How can photos be added WITHIN an album burnt to CD, I would expect them to go on the end? I play back the CD as View a slide show in Windows Picture and Fax Viewer OR View Pictures in Windows LivePhoto Gallery.

Let's say it's sorted by date (in the photo's header.)

Then why not change that date as you want? There are too many articles on editing the EXIF meta data that I'll stop here.
