Look for IRFANVIEW on

But your post may be a little "light." My Ulead DVD Picture Show can use TIFF without such a converion step.

Thanks Bob. I couldn't dowload that irfanview. I do have that ulead program, but it is an old one and wont do the job. I can play these discs in my dvd drive with a connection to a tv but the tv I have in my play room is only 20". I want to play them on a dvd player into my wide screen and as far as I know no dvd player can handle anything other than jpg. I can edit them but with hundreds of files on one disc it it a bit time conuming. Any other suggestion?

1. IRFANVIEW is on many download sites. Seek help as to why you have this issue.

2. THERE'S A NEW CLUE! You wrote that "hundreds of files" and it's worth noting that DVD Picture playback of JPG files requires some 99 picture maximum per set. It's also not as simple as converting to JPG and putting them onto the DVD. There are standards you get to adher to if you wanted to Do-It-Yourself. Since it's far too involved for this small space, I suggest you research the 99 picture limit and about how to manually create (arg, I'll never do that manually!) a Picture DVD.

The 99 picture limit per slideshow is an artificial limitation that's easy to explain. The displays on DVD players are ... TWO DIGITS.

3. IFFANVIEW has the batch conversion as well as my older Ulead DVD Picture Show 1 and the newer 2.0

Your dvd player support jpeg? If so, then almost any graphic program should be able to convert tiff to jpg. But if your dvd doesn't support jpg then you could use a program called "dvd pictureshow" by Ulead.
