10 out of 200 JPEG files burnt to CD aren't viewable on DVD playe

I burnt about 200 pics to a CD to show asa slide show on the DVD player but about 10 of them won't play on the DVD player however they are able to be viewed on the computer. The only thing these 10 pics have in common is that I made them bigger when I scanned them onto the computer and changed them from Bitmap to JPEG files. Can you please tell me what I've done wrong, and how to fix this problem?

    The file extensions are all .jpg

  • JBird88 Apr 01, 2009

    Sorry excuse my ignorance I'm not sure what that means.

    I scanned them all using the same program, but with the selected ten because I wanted them bigger I had to copy and paste them from the scan software into MS Paint, then I went to the "Copy to" option and saved them into the same file with file extension as .jpg

    Design software is Microsoft Photo Editor, I didn't use program to create slideshow, I just used the "show as slideshow option" in My Computer once all photos were in one file and all the files could be viewed. I watched the whole slide and all files were shown.

    what was your email address?

  • JBird88 Apr 01, 2009

    Hey there, I burnt the new files you gave me to the same CD as the others and they work :), they're a bit fuzzy but what did you do to them?

  • JBird88 Apr 01, 2009

    You are a genius, do you know if there's any way I can make them less fuzzy? I noticed they were alot bigger but didn't think that was the cause as there are others in the folder that are like 700KB and they work fine (but I think they were loaded onto the computer from camera, not scanned in).

Are all the files the same extension? JPEG and JPG are different as far as how they are encoded? even if you NAME THEM .JPG or .JPEG it is the encoding method you choose to export them as that makes the difference. As in Coreldraw for example. They is a JPEG and JPG export filter.

    Well what I was trying to get at.... Were they all created using the same software with the same export/save filter settings?

  • Anonymous Apr 01, 2009

    I know I am asking alot of questions below, But I am trying to narrow down where the error is occurring and if you have programs to help me ensure all files are in the same format.
    Please answer them in the order I asked them. Sorry I am so picky, but I need concise accurate info.
    What type of Design software do have installed on your computer? eg, Coreldraw, Photoshop...
    and what is the program you used to create the slide-show dvd?
    Can you email me one of the "good" Files and one that would not view in the slide show.
    Also can the slide show as a completed project be viewed from within the program it was created? I am not talking about the individual files, But the "completed" or "compiled" project as if you were "testing" the settings just before burning it to disc. and does the actual DVD play correctly on ANY PC?

    I noticed that the files were Very different in size from each other... which could cause an issue when the software has to try to make them all equal. So I just made them physically close to them same size ran them thru the same export filter and viola. You can download a image re sizer from the internet, and do pretty much the same thing I did. HOPE THIS HELPED YOU OUT!!!!!

  • Anonymous Apr 01, 2009

    Well I do not think the issue is the varying size of all the images, just that those that did not work are considerabley small than the others.

    And yes You can make them less fuzzy, by using some of the higher end image utils and applying filters such as Sharpen, Sharpen More, Edge detect (which detects the edge of each pixel not the edge of the photo).

    I would appreciate it if you would please rate the info I have supplied as either Helpful or Not helpful, an I will be glad to assist you further if the need arises.

I have a yamaha dvd-c750. I have just created a slideshow using iphoto on a Mac, burnt to a TDK DVD +R. Inserted into the DVD drive. Machine tries to load it. Gives a message "unknown disc"? ...

DVD players can be picky with the type of file format that they use. According to an amazon.com review of this player, it does read DVD+RW/+Rs & DVD-RW/Rs so the problem probably resides in your file format.

The problem is probably the fact that the DVD Player does not recognize the file format of your Mac slide show. The computer recognizes this format, as it plays the slide show. The DVD player recognizes JPG file formats, which is the standard format of a picture.

If a DVD is made with JPG Files, not your slide show files, it will display thumbnails of each picture, allowing the choice of what picture to view.

If the slide show is a must, try to save it to a video file format, such as a *.mpg or *.avi which are common video file formats. These files would be movies of the slide show that you have made.

Creating DVDs to play on DVP 5960

Best solution I've found to the "out of order" problem is to copy all the files I want on the CD to a temporary folder and then rename each with a number. If you have 100 or more pictures, start out with the first one you want displayed with 001, and so on. Secondly, if you want to create a Jpeg DVD, you need video editing software. Personally, I use Sony Vegas but there are other, less expensive, options.

Pics for my mom on recordable cd won't play

Hey nanaby,
For your pictures to play in most DVD players they should be in jpeg format so make sure they are converted to jpeg's. Another option you have that I like doing is making a slide show in Nero software, which you should be able to download for free online.

Sincerely,
Allan

Caanot play CD-R/DVD-R burnt from PC

First check that in your user manual that the dvd player is JPEG compatible. When you say you are having the problem on other DVD's do you mean when you use DVD+R and DVD-R disks on your own player or that yu have tried to play the same DVD disk on other brand DVD players without success? You dont mention which software you are using to save your JPEG's to Disk or whether you can in fact view them on your PC. After making sure that your Windows media player displays your pictures ok, Try using the NERO dvd burning Rom programme to load your JPEG's. I am assuming that you are not trying to record a DVD in a CD burning drive? hope this helps - hattonhall

You need to convert the .avi files to the MPEG format with software. Just renaming the file will not work.
