If you have gotten the pictures onto the computer it is fairly straight forward. Put hem all in one folder example: C:\MyPictures\ . At this ponit use your burning software to transfer a copy to CD.
What burning software are you using?
If you need to scan them into the computer it will be far more comlicated. Not hard you will just need special equipment. To stat a scanner with a negitive adapter.

Thanks Acklan: No I do not have the pictures on my pc. I would have to scan them which I tried to do this morning but they came out as black pictures. Obviously I don't have a scanner with a negative adaptor or if I do I don't know where it is lol. Will just have to give up on this I guess. Thanks again.

PS The burning software is Samsung 52x32xCD-RW

No No No No NO!!!!! You CAN'T GIVE UP. won't premit it. :thumbsup:
JUst kidding. A negitive adapter is a device that replaces the lid on your scanner to back light the negitive. Reflective light does not work.

List of examples...

On short notice and without your scanner model number I could not find an adapter. I hope this will give you the idea though.

I too have a ton of slides left over from the fifties and sixties. I realized I didn't want all of them anymore but did want to preserve many of them. I looked into a Wal-Mart superstore and found out they could not only do them but also make prints if I desired and for less money than the new scanner would cost me all within their 1 hour photo shop.
After I realized what I'd had to spend on a scanner, put up with the learning curve of a new piece of hardware and never have any use for it again, not to mention all the time and work. I opted for WM. The frosting on the cake it actually cost me less. Each slide you scan as I understand from Epson takes something like 20 to 30 seconds.
For me it was a no brainier.

I purchased a HP 4 scanner with the adapter, SCSI from ebay for $20. It scans in 8 sec. I have been scanning mom's negitive since 2002. Putting them on CD but thinking about DVD.

Acklan: Thanks for your help. My scanner is a Lexmark X75 3 in 1 printer, copier scanner, does that help?

Those 3 in 1 types are usually only for scanning printed pics or printed matter - not negatives or slides. Unless you want to continue doing slides and negatives, take the advice above and get it done at Wal-mart. I believe they will even put them on a CD for you. Also I think Costco has that service and even the drugstores like CVS and Walgreens.

If you don't have a scanner that has an available negative scanner then the best and easiest thing to do is use Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, etc which will all do it for you and put the pics on a cd.

If you really want to do it yourself here's a website that may help:

Also, there is a photo program named "Gimp" that may be able to help you do it.

Thank you for the information I think going the Walmart way is the way I will go.
