Unable to play rotated JPGs on Panasonic DVD player

    Hello - appreciate any advice on this problem.

    Goal: burn a CD-R with pix from dig camera, to send to relative to view on
    DVD player.

    Setup:
    - pix transfered from Canon A70 to PC running XP Pro
    - tried using ACDSee (old version 2.4), PhotoStudio5, and Exifer to rotate
    the portrait images
    - using HP DLA (drive letter access) to copy resulting files to CD-R blank,
    then "made compatible"
    - images display correctly (portrait as portrait) when CD in a different CD
    drive in same PC

    BUT on Panasonic DVD F-65 player:
    - any directory from CD shows one extra "phantom" file.
    - ACDSee-processed image either shows sideways or DVD player complains
    "cannot display image"
    - PhotoStudio-processed image sometimes displays correctly, sometimes
    sideways. Same goes for thumbnail display on player.
    - Exifer-processed image displays either sideways or not at all.

    Sent email to Panasonic nearly a week ago but no response. Also surfed for
    info on whether I need some special software to burn a DVD-player-compatible
    CD, but seems (as I would suspect) that no such software is necessary.

    Many thanks for any suggestions on what to do.

    In case anyone else has this problem, I have found one answer...

    Convert files to PNG, which will eliminate all EXIF and thumbnail data from
    the camera-generated original JPG, then convert back to JPG. It's a don't
    care for me re: any info loss in the process, since these are to be viewed
    on standard TV - so you won't notice.

    With that process, mission accomplished.

    Many thanks to http://www.acumensystems.com/mir/ for their great batch image
    processing tool.
