I have 2 digital cameras and always save my hundreds of pictures on CDs. Those CDs can played on either a PC or a DVD player with no problem.
I just bought a 35 film (negative/slide) scanner so that I can covert thousands of slides into digital images that can be emailed or watched on any PC or TV.
But I have a problem. To my surprise, when I save those converted images as JPEG and burn a CD with them, the DVD player cannot play the CD, and I get this message: “Unknown disc”.
Why is that? Why can I burn and watch the digital images that were taken with a digital camera but cannot burn and watch the images that were converted into digital from film?
I called the scanner manufacturer today and the technician thinks (I don’t know if he’s sure about it) that I have to format the CD before burning those converted images.
Is that correct? If so, how can I do it and what’s the software for that? I do have Roxio and Nero. Do I need a special software for formatting the CDs?
