You need 3rd party software to copy files to DVD (Like Nero, or CDBurnerXP Pro [free]).

Windows XP's inbuilt burner is only for CD's.

Is your DVD player able to read pics directly off a DVD? Not all do. Sounds like it doesn't. If it doesn't then to view your pics you'll have to create a photo slideshow in DVD video format. If you're unsure post the make and model of your DVD player.

That is the player I am refering to. Computer DVD drives can read anything your computer creates. Home 'TV' DVD players on the other hand cannot. It has to be .jpeg compatible.
What make and model is it?

Your DVD drive or computer should have come with DVD burning software, some of these are able to do it.
If not here's a free one with help and tutorials further down the page.
In the description you'll read it can create "a ready to burn DVD-image(.iso)". That's the option you want.
Once this is created abd stored on your computer, your burning software will create the correct format disc from that file. Again there's a tutorial link further down for making your DVD from this iso file.
