HT4718 After burning a slideshow from iPhoto export to a DVD, it will not play on my DVD player OS X 10.9.4

iMac 27' OS X 10.9.4 I burned a slideshow from iPhoto export to a DVD and now it will not play back on anything. The player said Unknown disc. What can i do?

I do find that using one of these programs will reduce the sharpness of the photos.
Granted, I've never used iPhoto - I use Photo to Movie for slideshows and various versions of iMovie for videos, but my pics are excellent quality and my videos are shot in 1080p (better camera)  or 720p (small camera) and the results are superb on my TV using both iDVD and Toast. However, I do not encode in iDVD, I simply use it to add a theme and menus. The encoding is done by Photo to Movie, or iMovie 06 HD (the only version ever to process losslessly) and either/both are imported into iDVD as a complete .mov, or Toast.
Since using those methods, I've never had a problem with the sharpness or crispness of my footage. My eyes cannot discern a difference between my "production" and true HD (unless of course I shook the camera while shooting, LOL).

    Hi john, try Burn...

  • I transferred photos from my camera to my computer and created a burn folder.  I recorded the burn folder on a DVD but it will not play on my DVD player.  What am I doing wrong?

    I transferred photos from my camera to  burn folder on my macbook Pro.  Made a DVD from the burn folder but it will not play on my DVD player.  What am I doing wrong?

    How did you do this burn? Did you use a program like iDVD?  A DVD player requires that the data on the DVD is recorded in the proper format: MPEG-2.  A program like iDVD will do this.  There are other programs available that can do the proper coding (Roxio 'Toast' for example), but iDVD has the most features and is easy to use.  It is no longer available from Apple, but if you search on Amazon, you can find 'iLife 11', a suite of programs including iDVD.  It will function properly on Apple's current operating system, but it cannot make a High-Definition (Blue-Ray) presentation.  It is Standard Definition only, as are all regular DVD's. One good way to present photos on a TV is to make a slidesow in iPhoto, then export that slideshow to iDVD, where it will be properly formatted for a DVD player.  Or, iDVD can make its own slideshow of up to 99 photos.  HTH.

  • I've burnt a slideshow of my photos onto a DVD disc but it will not play on my DVD player. It plays ok on my acer laptop. I burnt the same disc with slideshow from my old dell computer

    I've burnt a slideshow of my photos on my Apple Mac to a DVD+REW disc but it will not play on my DVD player or on a combined DVD/TV. However it will play on my wife's Acer laptop. I then erased the disc & burned another slideshow from my ancient Dell computer onto the same disc &it played just fine on everything. So it seems the problem ids somewhere in the Apple Mac process. Any ideas?

    If you want to play material on a dedicated DVD Video hardware player, you must create a DVD video disc, and you must use a DVD authoring application.The software creates files that the DVD video player can play and will burn them to a recordable DVD disc. Examples of applications are:
    Roxio Toast and iSky DVD Creator
    Mac's used to be supplied with iDVD authoring software but Apple discontinued it in 2011.
    Thanks for that.  Will need to check iSkysoft out.  I am in the process of looking for a VisualHub replacement/backup.  Especially when it comes to ease of use.  Toast is ok.  Just looking for something along the lines of VH. 

  • Burned a dvd but, it will not play on my dvd player for tv

    I created a slideshow with itunes music added in iphoto.  I tried the recommended free "burn for mac" software download.  It burned a dvd but, this will not play on my dvd player for tv.  What software title can i purchase that will burn my iphoto slideshow to a dvd that will play on typical home dvd player for tv AND on a windows pc?

    some dvd players are very picky on what they will play some only
    play dvd+r some only dvd-r some can't play dvd+rw and or dvd-rw
    dvd burnable is a pretty fragmented std.

  • I made a movie on iMovie and went to burn to DVD and of course I could not...contacted Apple and they said to download an app to help solve this problem...i I could finally burn a DVD, but it will not play on my DVD player...HELP!!!

    I made a movie on IMovie and went to burn it to a DVD ...I could not do this so I contacted Apple..they had me download an App and then I could make a DVD...but it will not play on my DVD player...does anyone know how I can solve this problem.. I purchased this to make DVD's and now I can not do that!!

    This is a known issue.  It really comes down to two key factors - what type of DVD are you burning to + what type of DVD player you have.
    This article will help.  It's lengthy and can be technical in some parts but should shed some light on your problem.

    Does the track play correctly in Quicktime Player?  If it does then it is an iTunes issue.  If it doesn't then it is possible the file was not completely downloaded, or is corrupt.

  • How do I burn a slideshow from iPhoto to a DVD?

    How do I burn a slidshow from iPhoto to a DVD?

    Export the slideshow from iPhoto, that makes a movie of it.
    Do you want to use this DVD in a domestic DVD player? If so, then the disk will have to be 'authored' to make it the correct form for that. If you have iDVD then that's the app you use. However, iDVD is no longer developed or distributed by Apple. You may be able to get it on an old iLIfe install disk.
    Other options:
    But there are lots of others too. Search on the App Store or MacUpdate

    Try deleting the problematic tune (electing to remove original file if/when prompted) and then re-downloading the file from the iTunes store.
    You can re-download content purchased from the iTunes store (availability varies depending on location) using the purchased option from the Quick Links section in the top right corner of the iTunes homepage in your iTunes application on your computer.

  • InDesign CS6 quits on startup after buying Adobe Premiere from the cloud. Need help, Adobe will not.

    I bought all the versions of creative suite over the years and now just bought Adobe Premiere from the cloud. From that moment my InDesign CS6 quits on start up and they tell me that they cannot support me on the phone and to go F myself. I erased everything, even the preferences, reinstalled it and still have the same problem. Do you think this is a marketing trap, buy a new one and we will make sure that you have to change everything? Help, I can't work anymore.

    Hi Jeff, here is a transcript of a chat I had with Pradeep. This should get you up to date with the situation. Meanwhile, i actually download the entire software from this address to reinstall the InDesign:
    Pradeep: As I understand you are having trouble with using Indesign CS6.
    Pradeep: Is that correct?
    André Guernon: Yes, it was working fine like the rest of my CS6 premium but after premiere was installed it failed completely.
    Pradeep: Thank you for confirming.
    Pradeep: May I know if you are getting any error message when you try to launch the software?
    André Guernon: Yes, InDesign quit unexpectedly.
    Pradeep: Okay.
    Pradeep: Before you get the error message, may I know if you are able to see the workspace, the menubar and the tool bars of indesign software?
    André Guernon: I see nothing of the interface, the process takes about a quarter of a second.
    Pradeep: I am sorry for the Inconvenience Andre.
    André Guernon: Thats OK, just happy that you are here.
    Pradeep: I wish I could help you with the issue but we (chat support) handle issues with  Download and Installation, Adobe CC products.
    Pradeep: As the issue is regarding an old version, I request you to visit Adobe forums where our experts will be able to assist you.

  • Yoga 13 after Win 8.1 update - apps for Netflix, CNN, ESPN, etc. will not play video - WTH?

    Can someone point me to where I can download the right driver(s) / updates that fix thw Windows 8.1 mess that crippled video playback in the Modern/Metro Win8 interface please?  
    I had other issues with wireless (which I fixed by buying a Linsys 802.11ac USB nub - finally decent range & performance), but really want to get this Win 8.1 video playback issue fixed.  
    OS is Windows 8.1
    Version 6.3.9600 Build 9600
    System Model 20175 
    System SKU Lenovo_MT_20175
    BIOS Version/Date Lenovo 66N55WW 2/28/2013
    BIOS Mode UEFI
    HD Graphics 4000 Driver date 10/1/2013
    Driver Version
    Monitor driver is generic PnP Monitor by Microsoft, dated 6/21/2006
    Driver Version 6.3.9600.16384
    Purchased the system May, 2013.  
    Very disappointed that Microsoft/Intel/Lenovo forced this 8.1 "upgrade" on us without having checked it for flaws in operation like this.  I've read other people having this, and similar problems, so any fixes / suggestions / links are greatly welcomed.  

    (Note that all of the following applies only to the Yoga 13)
    I think the previous reply is inaccurate in several ways.  Let me address each one:
    "Seems like the fix for many of our Windows 8.1 update issues is to roll back to the Windows 8 drivers Lenovo offers on its site (Conexant Audio Driver in this case)"
    This isn't quite correct.  There is no need to "roll back" to any previous driver versions.  What actually happened with the Windows 8.1 upgrade is that the Windows installation process reinstalled or refreshed all of the drivers in the system, and for some reason this driver installation process screwed up and left some drivers not functioning correctly. In almost all cases the solution is to simply reinstall that driver with the current/same version. The Conexant driver is the poster child for this problem.  The version of the driver that comes with the Windows 8.1 upgrade is the same as the version on the Lenovo site.  However it is often necessary to reinstall this driver to get it installed correctly. 
    I just want to reiterate that this is not a version problem, it's a problem with the way 8.1 reinstalled the drivers. This need to reinstall drivers affected people differently, with some people needing to reinstall other drivers as well, such as the Intel Thermal Framework drivers, etc.
    Windows 8.1 comes with newer versions (also newer than the reposted drivers on the Lenovo site) of the network Wifi drivers that for my system have been an improvement. However I have not experienced a lot of the Wifi issues that others have reported.  The only issue I have had with Wifi is that it was always a bit slow to connect after coming out of sleep mode (30-60 seconds). After the 8.1 upgrade my Wifi connects very fast (less than 5 seconds).
    Windows 8.1 also came with an updated Intel graphics driver that is newer than the one on the Lenovo site.  I am not aware of any problems with this new version.
    My Yoga 13 is now functioning perfectly after the 8.1 update, although I did have to perform the reinstall of the Conexant drivers, and I had to reapply the fix for the touch screen missing the first swipe.  I recommend the list of Yoga 13 fixes mentioned on this site.
    "Microsoft or Lenovo should add a setting to the "Configure Windows Update" options - it should be "Wait 6 months after the update is published for it to stabilize"
    I don't agree with this as the drivers that come with 8.1 weren't unstable or problematic. Again, the problem is with the 8.1 installation process, and I do agree that Microsoft should work on fixing that.  It has certainly caused a lot of people some grief, but it also seems that we have a solution which is the driver reinstalls.
    I also don't recommend turning off Windows update.
    Finally, it may be that some of the issues you bulleted are more serious than I am aware, as I haven't had all of these problems.  I would like to know more about these:
    "Kill the video / audio in Windows Apps (aka "Modern" interface) - Netflix, ESPN videos, CNN videos, etc.  "
    This is certainly a common problem. At least we have the fix for this (reinstall the Conexant drivers).
    "Degrade WLAN performance (range and speed)"
    I am skeptical that 8.1 is responsible for Wifi issues.  Seems like in general the new 8.1 network stack is better.  I know that many people had wifi issues prior to the update.
    "Fuzz out the resolution / display such that Display has to be turned down from 150% to "small""
    I don't know about this issue, so I would like to hear more.
    Mess up touchpad, keyboard, tablet-mode keyboard
    This again seems more like a problem that existed before 8.1, as many people had issues with this.  The most consistent solution seems to be disabling the "ymc" service.
