Hi, I just can't figure out what I can do to stop my photoshow from automatically starting when inserted into dvd player - and also how to stop the photoshow repeating. I did not tick the 'loop' box when creating the photoshow and it doesn't repeat when on my computer. I am using photoshow 5.0.4 Build 3034 and then using Nero Express to burn multiple copies faster. Any help is greatly appreciated xo

Many, if not all DVD players will automatically loop a DVD if there is no menu. The player would normally go to the menu but since there is none, it starts the PhotoShow again.   Can you add a simple menu in Nero Express when you go to burn the disc? There is nothing you can do in the program since the loop is a function of your DVD player.

Send out information to whom you send the DVD to use the DVD player's remote to pause at the start and then stop it at the end.

Thanks for your reply - so there is now no menu function in photoshow at all? Why would they remove it??? Maybe I was using photoshow '4' last year. Ok well as long as it's not me doing something wrong.... haha I wouldn't have a clue how to set up a menu in nero. I only know to press 'copy' hahaha. Thanks again
