Help?

I have Roxio Creator 6 (it came with my PC) It drives me crazy. I am trying to create an electronic photo album on DVD so I can simply watch it on TV.

 

Roxio won't let me create a nested subject file of my photos with more than 5 or 6 sub-menus. What I want to do as an example is create pictures on DVD filed like:

 

 

Europe

England

Picture 1

Picture 2

Picture n

Italy

Picture 1

Picture 2

Spain

USA

East coast

West

Asia

China

Turkey

You get the idea, just like an old physical photo album. Once I get the photos to DVD I want to delete them from my hard drive; to save space! For example I want to save 100 pictures today, filed as above. Then delete the 100 pictures from my hard drive. Next week I want to add another 50 pictures on the same DVD, to fill it up to the 4.7GB capacity. Roxio won't let me add to the first pictures. I have to reburn all 150 pictures, which of course won't work since I already deleted the first 100.

 

So can Roxio Cretor 9 let me do what I want? The Box at Best Buy doesn't say, nor does the Roxio web site.

 

 

 

 

Many thanks

Moved to the proper forum. BTW, you should edit your post to get rid of you e-mail address, so you don't get spammed.

Well, until someone comes by with how to build a slide show you can watch with your DVD player (assuming it can play slide shows on DVD-R) -

 

Use Classic Creator to create a backup disc of your .jpgs. You can put them in folders if you want, but they won't play on any DVD player.

 

Or ... :huh: ... er ... you didn't already make this first DVD and delete the photos, did you ... :(

This would be my suggestion too, Lynn. Create the folders you want on your PC and then use Classic Creator to burn them to a DVD. You will have to have a DVD player that will show jpeg files on it, however. I have one that will and one that won't. I would make a couple of DVD's this way before I would delete them from your PC. I personally do copies on cd's, dvd's and save files to exterior hard drive. Better to be safe then sorry. :rolleyes:

Hi Lorne,

 

Most newer DVD players will play .JPGs from a an ordinary data DVD or CD, so if you have one of these, then read on. Creator 6 will do what you want, no need to go to EMC9.

However if your player is one of the old ones which won't read JPGs, neither version will help you.

 

Roxio won't let me create a nested subject file of my photos with more than 5 or 6 sub-menus.

I'm not sure how you're trying to go about that, but if you create on your Hard Disk the tree of folders you want to put on your disc you should be able to drag that tree into your project window in Creator Classic, along with any JPGs already in those folders. It let me drag this tree into the project and burn it.

I simply navigated into "disc" with Creator Classic and the 8 main folders were displayed. I hit Ctrl-A to select them all, and dragged them all down into the project window. Voila! They took their subfolders with them.

 

For example I want to save 100 pictures today, filed as above. Then delete the 100 pictures from my hard drive. Next week I want to add another 50 pictures on the same DVD, to fill it up to the 4.7GB capacity. Roxio won't let me add to the first pictures. I have to reburn all 150 pictures, which of course won't work since I already deleted the first 100.

You can do what you want by making a Multisession disc. Briefly, you write the first "session" to your disc and then close the session but leave the disc open. Next time you go to write to the disc you set up the extra files and folders you want to burn and put or already have the same disc in the burner. You will be asked if you want to add to the disc, and you tell the program "yes". You can keep doing this until the disc gets full or you close it off. You won't have to re-burn the first batch you burned because you are adding to the disc which already has them. All you have to do is navigate your player to the folder you want, and play the JPGs from there.

 

Full instructions for burning multi-session discs is displayed in the help system in Creator Classic if you go to Help > Making Data Discs > Making a Multisession disc.

 

Does this help you?
