    Good afternoon

    can anyone tell me if it is possible to record JPEG images onto a DVD? In the past I have burned my digital photgraphs onto a data CD on my PC. I would also use the DVD recorder for transferring my Camcorder footage onto DVD format.

    I have seen that some of the Panasonic DVD recorders have a memory stick input, so that might enable me to store the JPEGs onto DVD.

    I am also thinking about buying the Sony DSC-W1 digital camera, this can also store video (MPEG) on the memory stick, would it be possible to move the data onto a DVD (an alternative to using S-VIDEO).

    Thank you

    Arthur

    Assuming it is a digital camcorder then any machine with an iLink socket will be ideal (Panasonic E65, Toshiba DR1, Pioneer 320) although a HDD/DVDR machine would give you more options (Panasonic E95, Panasonic E500 or Toshiba RDXS32). If it's an analogue camcorder then any DVD recorder will do - although again a HDD/DVDR is more suited.

    The Panasonic E65, Panasonic E95 and Panasonic E500 allow you to transfer JPEGs from the SD or PC Card slot to DVD-RAM and they can be played back in slideshows etc. They cannot, however, be copied to DVD-R for playback on other DVD players.

    The support for video from portable devices on the Panasonic models is slim to say the least. The E500 allows MPEG4 recording/copying to DVD-RAM but almost certainly won't work with your Sony.

    Most PC DVD authoring software will do Jpeg to DVD type stuff, obvioulsy you'd need a DVD burner in your PC for that, or if you do go for a recorder that has Ilink, then you should be able to transfer to DVD that way.

    321 studio's did a piece of software to make JPEG DVD's, don't know if that is really what you are looking for?

    Cheers!
