    Do you have a stand-alone DVD player connected to the TV?

    Many will recognise jpegs and play them automatically (mine both do here).

    The trick is to find what media will be recognised by the DVD player. One here will only recognise CD-RW, one is happy with CD-R. Depends on the make and model, some will only recognise DVDs

    If you install the Microsoft slide-show power toy, a new option appears when you right-click a group of picture files and "Send To" your CD-RW drive. After you open My Computer, File, Burn these files..., the Wizard has a checkbox so that you can install slide-show software to the CD as you are burning the pictures. After that, when you insert the CD, a slide-show starts automatically. Controls appear if you move the mouse to the edge of the screen so that you can configure playback.
