I’m frustrated

How do I burn both a Nero Slideshow AND folders of pictures and videos that made it to the same DVD?

I have a school project. I have the pictures in folders, and 3 short videos. I was able to create a slideshow. I can not find a way to burn the slideshow, and the folders of the jpg picture files used to create the slideshow. The DVD should play in a regular DVD player, and on a PC, and on the PC the picture folder should be able to be open, and selected pictures should be able to be printed.

  • Hi Vinman-

    Per your description, you will be burning a DVD-Video disc.

    When one has a slide show, one can add a folder which contains all the pictures, by selecting Customize in the Menu Editing screen and, then Disc/Project. The box for Additional Folder is there. That will create a folder called OrigPics.

    Obviously, the only way to print pictures is when you're playing the disc on a computer (I can envision a different scenario if the player is on a network with a printer on the network but don't want to go there). I haven't tried to select and print pictures from that folder (don't have time to try right now). Since this is a school project, I would assume that not everybody that has the disc also has the Nero suite. I mention that because if one is playing the disc from Nero MediaHome, the option to go to Nero Video and capture a screen is available. Otherwise, one should be able to click on PrintScreen from a keyboard and then print the picture from something like Paint.

    If you want to test, I suggest burning the DVD-Video project to your hard drive. That will create a Video_TS folder on your hard drive. You can then drag and drop it into most computer players, including Nero MediaHome. Never tried that with the OrigPics folder.

    Hope this gets you going.

  • Okay. I must be missing something.
    I can not find Customize or the Menu Editing Screen, so I'm wondering were I need to be for those options.

  • The description I gave you is for Nero Video. The option I gave you is not available in Nero MediaHome.

  • Thank you, I do believe I am in Nero Video. I attached an image of the main screen, perhaps that will help me know where I am and what product I am using.

  • Well that's the Content screen in Nero Video and is reached by either selecting a disc project under Create & Edit, when you open Nero Video or you select Next after creating your project in one of the "Make" options and then, selecting Create a Disc and a disc project.

    Since you don't have any files in the Content screen, you didn't create your project there (note that you can't import pictures in that screen). If you click on Import, Import File and import a video file, you will then have the option to click on Next and go to the Menu editing screen to select the feature I mentioned.

    Since you said you created a slide show with videos, you had to start out in one of the "Make" options. Which one did you use?

  • Okay, I'm trying again. I still think something is just not working as I expect it should. Attached are screen shots of project I'm trying to work on.



    Then this step



    Next



    Then (which makes me feel I'm back where I started)



    And finally



    Where I wind up opening the project again. I feel like I'm not getting to a screen with any choices except to assemble another slideshow.

  • When you get to the last screen you posted, select Create a Disc, DVD, DVD-Video.
    That will take you to the Content screen where you can add chapter markers and some transitions, if desired. Clicking on Next takes you to the Menu editing screen where you can accept the default menu, customize it or opt to not use a menu. That's where you can opt to chose the Additional Folder I previously described. Clicking on Next takes you to the preview screen where you can preview your project. Clicking on Next takes you to the Burn screen where you can burn your project either to disc, the Image Recorder or your hard drive.
