Default I need help copying a floppy to a CD-R

I have a camera that records pictures on to a disc instead of a memory stick. I also have a DVD player that I can view my photos off of the CD-R disc directly from my camera on the TV. But, I would like to be able to correct and enhance my photos with a program such as photo suite, then watch them on the DVD player. With my photo suite I can get the photo's to copy to the floppy but I don't know how to get them back on a disc to view in the DVD player.

HELP!

you need a dvd writer and the software application to copy them to a dvd. not sure who makes the writers or how much they would cost.

Actually, you DON'T need a DVD writer...most DVD players can read VCD discs which any CDR can create with the proper software.

One way of doing it would be to buy a DVD burner but that is the expensive way ($250+ CDN)
You can also use a CD-R disc and burn a VCD which should be playable on most dvd players......do a search for VCD howto and you should find info.

You need some software to convert the still pictures to video so they can be played on a DVD player. VCDs play fine in most DVD players: http://www.picturetotv.com/ I donít know whether there is freeware that will do this.

Default TELL ME MORE!

I know just enough about this to be dangerous! The DVD player I have has a special feature to show my photos. I have tried to record from a floppy to a CD-R but I am unable to get it to copy. Can you tell me exactly what I am doing wrong. I have 2 different brands of software called Movie Maker. Would this help me?

You might need to use first grader language with me. I am not up on all of the lingo yet.
