Is it better to burn pictures onto a CD or a DVD?

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 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.

How many pictures will a 700 MB CD hold?

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.

How to burn pictures and see on tv?

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.
