DVD-R discs are not as universally playable on all DVD players as are regular home made DVD's. Also, it's possible that -depending on WHAT burner you used to make the copy, and the particular brand of DVD-R your using - that the burners laser may not be strong enough to make an usable impression on your DVD-R, for your DVD to "see."

To get the info from your disc, your DVD player needs to shoot a laser into the burned pattern on the disc, and have it reflect back to the photocell pick-up. If the image was burned in with enough power (many burners can't do DVD-R's) your player will play it fine. If NOT, it won't "see it," OR it'll have SO many errors, it won't be able to retrieve the data so you can see your photos.

DVD (and CD) "R's" are a great idea, but they are not as reliable as regular DVD's and CD's. If yu care about what you're copying, you should use regular discs. By the way, SOME older players won't even like regular DVD's or CD's.

Can't get my photo cd's to play on my blu-ray


It seems that the image format is not supported by the Player. The Player supports only JPEG files.
If the images are already in JPEG format, it seems that the issue is with the disc. You may copy the images to the Computer burn them to a new CD or DVD to check if that helps.

If the images are not in JPEG format, then you may convert the images to supported format using any convertion Software.

If the issue persists, then you may reset the Player by pressing STOP and POWER button at the same time when the Player is ON.
This should resolve the issue.
