Still trying to get my head round 'slide show' options on a DVD player!

    I understand that, with JPEG compatible DVD players, I can just burn
    JPEGs into the root directory of a CD, and the DVD player will play
    them.

    I also have the option of burning a 'slide show' player (eg Ulead) into
    the CD alongside the JPEGs, and that's where my questions start!

    If this is done with a JPEG compatible DVD player, do I get the choice
    of using this software or not - or does the DVD player not bother
    looking for the software if it is JPEG capable?

    Am I right in saying that the same software will execute in a DVD player
    AND my PC? Can I just pop the same CD in my PC and a DVD player and get
    exactly the same 'show'?

    Am I right in saying that the JPEG compatible DVDs are all pretty basic
    (image advance only), and that I need on-board software (on the CD) to
    do anything fancy like wipes, cross-fades and synchronised background
    music.

    TIA.

  2. Hi Alan: I went through this two weeks ago when I was researching DVD
    players to do slide shows both for genealogical and my photos. I ended up
    with a JVC model but the key to getting it to work was in the manual fine
    print. When you use your CD burn program, click "create CD" then select the
    protocol. It must be the ISO9660. I tried the standard burn using Win XP and
    it would not work properly. By the way I used Roxio 4 with Win 98. (I have
    my hard drive partitioned so I can use both operating systems). I have the
    Roxio5 but it requires the platinum edition and I'm too cheap to upgrade.
    And yes the slide show is compatible with my computer and DVD. Haven't done
    anything fancy as you mention in your last para. Have fun. Keith.
