A friend of mine has just bought a Panasonic 32inch LCD TV and a Panasonic DVD Player.
When they try to play a DVD+RW disk in the player to view jpgs on their TV nothing comes up.
So she went back to the shop who told her that Panasonic are different and that she needs to use a RAM disc. Also the photos have to be saved in DCIM format or TIFF. Then they contradicted this by saying that TIFF format does not work with Panasonic TVs.
Now this strikes me as a bit of garbled information because as far as I know DCIM is not a format it’s a folder type. There may be a DCIM suffix as a photo type but I’ve never seen it referring to anything but a folder on a Digital Camera or Memory Card.
What I’m also very confused about is what is a RAM disk. Surely that’s a hard disk type in a computer not a removable media like a DVD or CD?
There’s no way you can Convert .jpg photos or .tiffs into DCIM format as there doesn’t appear to be such a thing.
Does anyone know what the real format is that a Panasonic player prefers?
Its it Tiff format or not. Does she really need to use a DVD-R non re-recordable format and is this a problem of compatibility with the “trick” format of +R and +RW disks.
Surely this should only be a matter of converting all the Jpgs to a normal format the Panasonic accepts and then running that in the DVD player.
I’m sorry I don’t know the model numbers and can’t find out until they are back from holidays. It might be a DVD Recorder Hard Drive and Disk machine I’m not sure. I hope someone can answer this for me.
