Doesm't Work Right Anymore

Question

I believe that my problem might be related to this topic. I have used photoshow previously and have been pleased with the resulting DVD burned on my computer that played in the DVD players displaying the show on a TV. It was easy. Now when I view the share page of photoshow I have to export the files first and then burn the files to a DVD. The resulting DVD can only be viewed on a computer. It is not compatible with a DVD player. This is disappointing as the TV viewing of a show is so wonderful.

Has photoshow changed? I believe my version is 6.00

The program has been broken for a long time and it will not be fixed.

 

Use the desk top version to download your current PhotoShows and to make/edit/upload and create video files from that desktop version. You get the desktop version from your membership page.

 

You can create files in that desktop version and copy them to a thumb drive if your TV/DVD player will handle those. You would need a program to make a DVD from the video files. Windows DVD maker is free and probably already on your computer. If that doesn't work,download and use a free DVD maker software like IMGBurn (here). Use the small direct download button rather than the big green one.

Thanks for the info that the photoshow is broken for burning your own DVD. Thanks also for the idea of using the thumb drive in a smart TV...that works fine.

I still wanted a DVD to play in a DVD player so tried burning a DVD using Imgburn. The resulting DVD would only work in the computer not the DVD player. Disappointing.

Imgburn cannot create a video DVD directly. You have to have a iso file or Video_TS folder set (created by a DVD authouring program) to burn a video DVD that is playable on a DVD player.

Yep, I made a mistake about ImgBurn. Did you try Windows DVD Maker?

Windows DVD Maker did not work either. The DVD plays in the computer but not the DVD player.

What DVD authoring program do you recommend?

I just used the downloaded PhotoShow program to create a DVD - it works just fine.

 

What is the folder structure on the Windows DVD maker DVD your created? If that doesn't work then it is not the program but something your are doing wrong or a problem with your DVD player and/or media you are using. After all it does play on your computer so the DVD seems to have been burned correctly.

Thank you!!!

Windows DVD Maker worked. I was able to burn a DVD that both my DVD player and computer will read.

So what did you do different from post #6 where you stated Windows DVD Maker does not work?
