Question

I created a slide show with 161 pics, all pics were from CDs from WalMart, added 4 of my own music songs (mp3 format) saved it and burned it to a CD. The CD will play through my DVD player but not on my computer. (Windows7) or my laptop w/Vista! I downloaded VLC media player and that allows the CD to play. Windows Media Player will not recognize the disk or any information on it!! Please advise!! Thanks

I split your post from the thread where you posted since it was not really related to the topic of that thread.

 

What program in C2012 did you use to create the slideshow? Why did you burn to a CD?

Thank you for spliting my question out. I used Roxio Creator 2010, under photo, I used Create PhotoShow. I burned it to a CD and a DVD. ( I had to make 140 copies for a graduating class of our local high school. ) Neither one will play on any computer. Thanks again, JR

JR,

 

PhotoShow writes a Super Video CD [sVCD] when you 'share' to a CD. It makes a Video-DVD when you 'share' to a DVD.

 

Windows Media Player can't handle SVCDs and will tell you they're empty, although many stand-alone DVD players will happily play them. You need a program like the VLC player to play an SVCD on a computer.

 

The VLC player will also play Video-DVDs on a computer for you if none of your other programs will.
