    Hi, I've burnt some pictures on my laptop to both a CD-R disc & a DVD-R disc they both play back fine on the computer.

    But when I insert them into our DVD player neither will play and the message 'cannot play disc' appears!

    Help needed........

    You have to burn as a video in a particular format. The sort that have a DVD menu just like films you buy. Adobe Premier elements can do this amongst others.

    You probably wrote the discs as multi session where you can add further images later on in the PC. Some DVD players won’t support this. You’ll need to finalise the disc so that the DVD player can read it.
    You may get an option on how you want to create a disc depending on your system when you put the blank disc in.

    Is your DVD player capable of playing burned media? Not all of them are.

    depends on the age of the DVD player, some can handle multiple media file types, and some from even 5 years ago cannot.

    Also, what 'region' are you setting your disks to when you are burning them? I think most computer programs default to region free (region 0) now, but older DVD players can't always handle those. If there's a setting try changing it to Region 2 (Europe). It might just work.
