    Hi all,
    I just thought i would ask because I have windows XP and I would love to put my pics onto a DVD disc so I can have a slideshow on my TV.
    My son went on an excursion to Sydney and has all these pics.
    I have kodak easyshare but having probs.
    I tried to download mydvdslideshow but looks like it will take hours!!! for free trial download,
    has anyone got any ballpark suggestions?
    I dont have anyone at home to ask as they always ask me for tech advice!!!
    I dont have an XP manual to read either.
    Help pleeeese!

    I dont expect to gain really lengthy tech support here, I just need to know maybe a name of a download or windows program that I could look at!!
    Then I can put my chickies on the dvd too!!!

    Have you tried the old copy and paste technique? Just highlight the files you want to send to the burner, then right click and hit copy. Go to the driver that you can burn on, and right click and hit paste. Depending on the version of windows you have, the option to burn to DVD will come up on the side, or you may have to right click on the folers to find it, or possibly even look under the File option on top.

    Im no expert, but thats how I usually do it. Maybe someone else can chime in and offer more advice. Good luck!

    I would try to open the pic's and then "save as" and save them to the disc in the drive. (I'm not sure if its D drive or what) just put a disc in and then when you save as, you can browse till you find it.
    Good Luck
