    Burn jpg to DVD

    I want to use Nero 6.6 to burn a large group of jpg files averaging 250 to 400 KB each to a DVD slide show.

    I know Nero can do this but is there a way to calculate just how many of these jpgs can fit on a DVD disk?
    IS there a built in calculator in Nero to do this or is there a separate utility that can give me an idea of this?

    If I just select "all", will Nero use as many as it can and then prompt for another DVD when needed?

    Hello?
    I guess no one uses Nero this way? There must be some people who have used Nero to burn DVD slides?

    I use Roxio Easy Creator 8, it and earlier versions showed on the bottom of the screen how much space I have left on current blank CD or DVD, and/or how many CD's or DVD's it is going to take to copy the selected files.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Thanks Dave.
    There may well be a similar feature this in Nero. I'll have to let it go a little further into a burn sequence to see if it does.

    Are you planning to create a DVD movie or simply place the images on the disc and let the DVD player run the slideshow?

    This will make a HUGE difference in number of images you can fit on the disc.

    Mark,
    Place the images on a DVD as a slide show and use a TV type DVD player run it.

    Re: Burn jpg to DVD

    I understand. For anyone who isn't familiar with this, there are two ways to approach this:
    1) Use software to create a video of the slides that will be played as a video
    2) Place the imgaes on the DVD as JPG, which most (if not all) DVD players can read and play in sequence

    The advantage of #1 is that you have total control over transitions between images and music. The disadvantage is that the total number of images will be reduced dramatically.

    The advantage of #2 is that you will be able to save MANY more images on the disc than when using a video format. The other advantage is that anyone with whom you share this can access the source images. The disadvantage is that there's no actual "slide show" and the DVD player will need to be equipped to display a slide show.

    Mark,
    Well, I assume that I'll be using the first option, since I'll be creating the "slide show" in DVS format from the Nero Software.

    I DID try this with only about 5 slides to see if any TV DVD player can run them and it seemed to go fine. Now I want to load up as many slides on to DVD disks, so that friends can run them direct from their DVD players.

    That's why I'm trying to see just how many slides I can get on each disk. I'm talking about 600 slides here.

    In this case, there's no way to determine how many images you will be able to fit on the disc since the way you format the show will change the outcome dramatically. The duration that each image is displayed, the type and timing of transitions, and the sound tracks used will all contribute to the file size of the video.

    The best way you can approach this will be to use the duration (timing) as the determining factor that will tell you how close you are to reaching the capacity (as determined by the capacity of your DVD).

    Re: Burn jpg to DVD

    I suppose that's so.
    I'll just have to "play it by ear" and see how many I can get on each. I won't be using any sound or titles on them, just the pix.
