Either, a DVD will allow the most amount of space.

It depends primarily on how many pictures you intend to store on a single disc, the size of those pictures and where they will be viewed. Choosing one of the other will have no impact on the final quality of the pictures. While a DVD will hold several times the number of pictures of a CD, CD's can still hold a fair number of pictures. If you can fit all of the pictures you need onto a single CD, you are a little better off going with the CD. The reason is that most DVD players and DVD drives will read a CD, yet CD players and CD drives will not read a DVD. If you are sharing these pictures with someone that may only have a CD drive and not a DVD drive, the CD will give you greater compatibility. If you have too many pictures to fit on a single CD, you would still be okay sharing a DVD in most circumstances. Almost all drives installed in new computers over the past 7-10 years have been DVD drives. I think the DVD is better than CD, becaus of the better quality and bigger capacity...so if you want to burn more pictures onto a CD or DVD, you had better choose the DVD disc, hope these informs can help you.

Do you mean to play videos or a slideshow on a DVD player? If so, it depends on your DVD player. Some DVD players can run videos from a regular CD, while others can't If you mean what kind of CD is needed to STORE pictures and video, it really doesn't matter. You can use a CD, a DVD, or even a Blu-Ray disk.

No, as long as you have a CD/DVD drive that can write to discs, then it should work.

A DVD is a movie disc. A CD is a music disc. Your DVD drive cant recognise cds because it is probably from an old computer. try downloading whatever is on the CD from the internet.

Your computer can freez up by downloading from anything like a cd, dvd, or internet It does this because you might of used up all of your ram, or hard disk space, or there could be a hidden virus in the item you are downloading

You will need to save the pictures on a flash drive, CD, or DVD, in order to load them on an iMac.

Good question, but plus CD doesn't exist. It does with regard to DVD.

It depends on the size of the Pictures. A CD is like any memory device, it has a definitive amount of space to store data. you can store about 700 MB of pictures. If you have a camera that can produce 10 meg pictures then you can put about 70 pictures on that CD. That is a general answer to the question, however in reality pictures taken from a 10 meg camera may be larger or smaller on a disk. A DVD will hold many more pictures and most computers that can read the pictures from a CD can also read them from a DVD. I just did a wedding, lunch, dinner, and dance and I've got 719 pictures and they total 3.7 GB. That's 3,700 MB or 6 Cd's. I should be able to get all of them on a DVD. A DVD can hold 4.7 GB of information. I hoped that cleared things up a little.

I take it by burn you mean put your pictures on a CD. If your computer has a CD burner, you should have the software to burn pictures onto a CD. Once they are on the CD, you can view them on most DVD players. My DVD player will only show pictures that are saved in the jpg or jpeg format, so check the manual for your player. Also many digital cameras come with patch cords that plug into the side of the camera and the aux plugs on your TV.

A DVD can not be used in a CD Player, but a CD can be used in a DVD Player.

a CD is like a DVD but the DVD cant be played in a radio and a CD cant be played in a DVD player

Assuming your computer has a recordable CD or DVD drive in it... Insert a recordable CD or DVD into the drive. Format the disc, then simply drag & drop the pictures you want to copy from the pictures folder on the computer - onto the disc's directory.

User Avatar

Just insert the CD and either wait for autorun to ask you if you want to view them, or open My Computer and double-click the CD/DVD drive.

Does not matter as long as there is enough room on the media for the files to fit.

User Avatar

It doesn't matter. It depends on what you need to burn it for. Cars will not read a music DVD and some older computers only have a CD player.

A disc. Such as:CDCD-RCD-WRCD-RomDVDDVD-RDVD-WRDVD-RomDVD-RAM

the dvd you watch to and the cd you listen to.

Output. You insert a CD and show (play) the movie. A DVD Multi Recorder is an output and input device. You can insert a blank CD into it and record even pictures. Then you can click on play and play out of the CD right after you record into it.
