I just purchased Microsoft Digital Image Suite 2006 to make a photo story for my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary. I wanted to create something they could play back on their DVD player so they can share it with family and friends. I am confused however, about saving the story onto a video CD. The directions state that photo stories cannot be copied onto DVD's. I have never heard of a video CD. I have DVD's for recording movies off of my digital camera and I have CD's. Is this another kind of disc or do you just use a CD that allows audio and photo storage and the program will format the disc for this type of playback on DVD players? I already created a story and saved it to a CD for computer playback, but am confused as to what type of disc to use to burn for VCD format. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!!

Basically a Video CD is a cd that can be played back in a computer or many dvd players... The downside is the lesser capacity.
