    I have just started trying to use Nero 5.5. I am using Nero express to burn pictures I loaded onto my hard drive from a digital camera. I am using the data disc burner but when I load all the images I can only burn them in alphabetical order. Is there a way that I can sort these manually? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    One way to do it is to drag the images into a folder in order and zip the folder before you close it. You pretty much have to split Windows Explorer into two windows to do that.

    If you plan to store a lot of digital images you should get an organizer for them. They let you assign keywords and comments and can search the whole database by file name, keyword or comments. You can also record folders in the proper order from most of them.

    If you want to try a freeware this is pretty good: http://perso.wanadoo.fr/myalbum/MyAlbum.html

    If you want to buy a commercial program I would ask on the tools forum at dpreview: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/forum.asp?forum=1004

    have you tried to bypass the express mode? that keeps the files in the order you put them on the cd regardless of the name.

    Thanks for the ideas. I tried zipping the file but when I did this it put them in alphabetical order when I zipped it. I will try to use the regular version. When I'm burning pictures should I be selecting the data disc or videos/pictures? When I tried using the picture one it didnt burn the pictures to the cd. It set up folders, CDI, MPEGAV, VCD, EXT and SEGMENT and I couldn't find the pictures anywhere in those folders. Thanks for your help, I really don't know what I am doing. :confused:

    Could you perhaps try this - when you have created the folders with the items in that you want to burn > Open the folder > Right click anywhere in there > Then select Arrange by .... If alphabetical is the default then perhaps choose another, or if Auto Arrange is ticked, untick and reorder them how you want.

    I have done that with MP3s, using Nero 6 so it might work for you. If not then please post back here.

    Record the pictures as data.
