I can play a Kodak picture CD on our lap top, but can't play one burned on our desk top. I use the slow burn and have tried several different CD manufacturers, but no change. Any suggestions?

I think I've discovered what's wrong. I had burned the still images on a dvd, not a CD as I thought. It won't play the DVD, but it will play the CD version.

Thanks for posting that. Let us know if that was indeed the problem.

The desk top has a dvd drive. The lap top is a CD-ROM drive. Can I make a CD on the desk top for use on the lap top? Do I need to add a CD drive to the desk top?

Lyndon, I make CD's on my DVD drive but it may depend on the type\manufacturer. My OS is Win XP Pro and I use the wizard for copying pix to CD. I never cared for the Easy Share software that came with my Kodak.

Which Operating System is running on your computer? Win95, 98 or ME?

:flowers:

Most DVDs will burn CDs, as they also play both, but you must nominate to the Burning Program what you want? Click on Burn to Options, on most and it will give Options? Select CDROM, not DVD.

Each Program is a little different, but usually shows two settings for your DVD, almost identical except for DVD and CDROM, and an Option to Burn an ISO Image.

For Rosie: Desk top OS is Vista. Lap top OS is Windows 98

For Abacus 7: My options are "Data Disc" and "Video DVD" if I use Windows Photo Gallery. I tried the former with no success. The CD's that the lap top will read were burned on my previous desk top with OS Windows 98.

Can you try this?

Save your Pictures into a Folder, called "Pictures", onto the Desktop.

Then use the Desktop to Burn them onto a CD as I said earlier, but using "Pictures" as where it is burnt from.

Maybe the Kodak Program is interferring with it?

WIN98SE will read most CDs very well, but DVDs, no way, that I know of, but I am always willing to learn.

You can get a Free Program to help you Burn it on this Trusted Forum.

Some of our Members are associated with it and all is really Nice there. I have used it with good success.

Ray.

SUCCESS!! I down loaded ImgBurn software and burned the photo's to a CD-R as a data file which is recognized by Ofoto on the lap top. Thank you Abacus 7 for resolving a very perplexing situation!!
