Ok, Im just going to list some question, hopefully in a logical order because I have not used my DVD burner in many years. What I am trying to do is make a slideshow for a friend of mine graduating. 1. Which media to use? Buying from Best Buy, and I have the ability to use Lightscribe. The only Lightscribe I can buy is Memorex (which I never saw recommended on the FAQ). They do have Verbetim, but only in the 30 pack. Memorex is in 20, and for only needing 2-3 DVDs, its the only logical choice if Im doing Lightscribe. Just wondering if Memorex is reliable enough. 2. If I don't take Lightscribe, from Best Buy, what should I get. I saw Verbetim, Memorex, and Sony. Can someone recommend the best, and DVD+R or DVD-R (even though I heard it doesn't really matter + or -) Second part deals with slideshow. 3. Is there a way to put a flash file on a DVD and have it play. Basically, my internet provider provides a Slideshow program, but no way to burn it to DVD, only CD. It lets me save it as a flash, so I'd like to put that on a DVD. 4. Is there any good free slideshow programs? I can't seem to find any. 5. I used Nero 6 for my last slideshow many years ago, and used a CD key that worked then. This key no longer works, is there a way to fix this? Also, if anyone has a copy of Nero PhotoShow Deluxe for sale, it is the program I am really looking for. Thanks for all the help, you guys here helped me a ton when I first started out. AOL instant messenger: MBBennett24 If have have time to contact on AOL that should be cool, or if you have a key for sale. Thanks. Doh, forgot another question I had: 6. What is going to be coming out as the best quality, jpeg or bmp. I am running both at 300 dpi from my scanner. The bitmap images are much bigger on my screen, and take up 5-6 MB a piece. The jpegs take up like 75k. Im guessing the bmp's are going to look alot better on screen because of the increased size?
