Having problems with your Computer Utilities & Maintenance ?

Transfered pics to DVD ,will not play through my dvd player to tv. Do I need to re-format and how/?


Answers :

There could be a few problems here. First, different video players only accept certain types of disks that you can burn on. The older the player, the fewer options there will likely be.

DVD Players also only read certain types of files. So, there is no one way to tell what to use without first knowing the dvd player make and model. Common file types that are acceptable for pictures are jpg and gif. Jpeg is a universal type file, and it can be edited in almost any program.

After you find out what kinds of image files your player can read, your best bet is to use whatever software that came with your dvd burner.

The older the burner, the more likely it will be that you have to use the software that came with it. It would be under programs, and if you are not a frequent user, you may never even have opened the software.

Ugh, right? Media Player will also burn pictures to dvds, and you can even use my computer to burn pictures as long as you have them saved in the right file type.

If you are using dvd r disks, you have to finish or finalize them before trying to play them. Recording on those is a one shot deal.
