    Untill recently I have not made any CD or DVD disks to show groups of my digital pictures in a file show as I always have viewed them on the computer. I did not buy a DVD player till I found one that played all formats (especially for the movies). I have made several short slide shows using the Sonic program that came with my computer (Dell Dimension 8400) But I do not get the slides to show in the order I wish. In the DVD player they play but the order is not the way I want it no matter what order thy are recorded. The files within the folders play in order but the folders do not. If you have a group of pictures folders and within them you have different folders or for pictures how do you get them to play in the order you wish. It seems thy follow the alphanumeric ssetup.

    Are you creating a compliant DVD or are the files getting burned directly to disc?

    If you're creating data discs where the .jpg files are burned directly to disc it's really device dependant on how they are displayed. Displaying .jpg's is not a DVD standard therefore manufacturers can follow there own set of rules.

    I'm not familair with the application you mentioned so I can't be of any help there except to suggest getting software for creating slideshows.

    Pro Show Gold is considered one of the best for doing this: http://www.photodex.com/products/proshowgold/

    IrfanView allows you to make a slideshow following the list of images that you create in a .TXT file.
    You can then place the files and an "autorun.inf" file on a CD to automatically run it.

    Check out the Help, "slideshow from CD" section of IrfanView.

    Thanks for the answers. I guess I was thinking that they would just run on the player like I copied them to disk with the Sonic program I mentioned. Should have known there should be a special software program involved.

    Let me be a little more specific, the information I posted was regarding standalone DVD players such as one hooked to your TV. Most will play a .jpg slideshow but again the how and if depends on the player, look in the manual for specific directions. Using ChuckE's advice you can create a slideshow for your computer.

    BTW if you want to make one for your computer you can follow the first part of the direections here in post #5: http://forums.techguy.org/digital-photography-imaging/481150-embed-sound-into-graphic.html

    Only thing to note is Instead of using the e-mail or DV-AVI presets to output use one of the high quality presets.
