I normaly save my jpg's to a R/W CD as 'Data' until I have enough to fill a CD then burn. I've just tried saving to a R/W DVD as 'Data' but get an error msg saying it's not suitable.... Is it possible to save jpg's to a DVD? or am I doing something STOOPID? BTW I'm using NERO.
Thanks for any assistance.

Of course it is possible!!!

Presume you have set Nero to DVD as opposed to CD???

Thanks Ray, I just came back to amend this post. Obviously I WAS doing something STOOPID, First DVD I'd tried to burn!
Didn't realise DVD had to be selected.
Oh Well just proves stupidity isn't restricted to politicians.

FYI: If you are saving images to DVD using NERO you might want to look at the DVD slide show option. Basically it allows you to create a slideshow of your pictures that can be played on any standard DVD player. The slide show itself uses lower resolution copies of the imatges that are suitable for TV display, but you can save the high-res to the disc as well.

I am not sure if this is me or Nero but I have tried using it's slide show option to burn a viewable DVD and it appears it will not allow more than 99 jpg's per folder. I even downloaded all the updates hoping it might update this but it didn't. I have managed to get a slide show DVD burner without that limitation but be careful there is an awful lot of poor software out there for this purpose.

Get a proper editor. Nero is more for BURNING than anything else. They threw in some basic editing tools so they could sell more. Pinnacle studio for example does slide shows, or ulead video studio.

The last slideshow I did, I used Pinnacle studio 10.7. It consisted of about 650 jpeg's, with pan and zoom feature, and title overlays... and I burned the dvd as HD for hi-def playback in the toshiba hd-a1 hi-def player.

Hey Blackbill, thanks for that tip. Would you believe I actually have Pinnacle Studio (8.?) and I never thought of using that since it came with a A/D converter card so I can copy my VCR's to DVD.
