    I do not make prints, I like to show my photos on the TV. My Sony DVD player does not read burned DVDs, it does play CD-Rs/RWs, MP3, WAV. The newer DVD players do play burned DVDs, but the read time of all files is really slow.
    As I'd like to move to Blu-ray players and burners, I want to know if all BD players play burned
    BD, DVD, CD-R discs. Or, should I show photos on CD-Rs?

    i would look at the specification and make sure it will read DVD-R / DVD+R /DVD-RW / DVD+RW before buying
    and not assume ALL will play

    whats the make and model of the Sony - does it say in the user manual it will not play burned DVDs?

    Specs vary from player to player. You will need a model that can play burned media (most will) AND supports whatever format you are trying to use.

    With that said, most newer TV's have USB inputs. In which case, you can simply attach a thumbdrive.
