Why won't my slideshow burned on DVDs play on DVD players?

by Lee Koo (ADMIN) ModeratorCNET staff - 8/12/11 4:20 PM

Question:

Why won't my slideshow burned on DVDs play on DVD players?


I like to make "slideshows" and burn them to DVDs, which I mail to
family and friends, many of whom are elderly and don't have computers.
It is simple for them to play my slideshows on their DVD players but
I get many reports that my DVDs "won't play." I am advised that DVD-R
and DVD+R are compatible with most DVD players and this is what I use.
I have recently purchased Nero BurnExpress and find it to be fast and
easy to use but it has not corrected my problem. I think that this
must be a common problem and I need help! Thank you.
