Gary has reconnected with an old friend, but he has no digital access. He wants to be able to create a slide show of pictures and burn it to a DVD so he can watch it with his TV. Leo says that while it hasn't been popular for awhile, it's still doable. Roxio makes great DVD burning software that will do it. Another option is Corel DVD MovieFactory Pro 7.
Gary is using XP, so he'll have to be sure to have Service Pack 3 installed. He should make sure he has it set in the settings to play back on a standard DVD player.
Can he do it with Picasa? Leo says he can burn a CD to play in a computer, but not a DVD player. Windows Movie Maker can also do this.
