    Can I still view JPEG photos if I burn them to DVD disc with my PC on the Panasonic E85

    This DVD recorder looks good but has no JPEG facility according to website.

    I am a beginner and need help, otherwise Tosh XS32 is next best I suggest?

    It seems not. See 4th post in http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=165198&highlight=jpeg

    The Pioneers will read JPEGs from any PC CD-ROM. You put in the CD and you can run all the JPEGs on it as slide shows folder by folder.
    They are all made to fit height or width of TV (whichever happens first so there's no distortion), so it's advisable to have decent resolution.
    Images 1024x576 will fill a 16:9 TV with good quality image.
    I don't know how the Tosh operates/presents JPEGs

    You either need the E95 with JPEGS on DVD-RAM or you need to write your pictures to a VCD on your PC instead.

    I only made one test, but it seems that my Pioneer 720 takes ages to load a picture a 5 Mpixels picture (about 10-15 seconds). And if picture is portrait mode, it simples refuses to read it.
    Cheap DVD player do a better work here.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    On the first part, a 5M picture is very big. I'm currently scanning 35mm slides then editing them to 1024x576 pixels. They are around 150K.
    No problems with portrait format which I just edit to get the best crop to 576 high.

    If you have some pics that can't be read at all they are probably in JPEG Progressive format, which the Pioneers won't read. JPEGs must be Baseline. See page 10 of Pioneer manual.

    This may not be quite the forum for this, however....
    If you are using photo editing PC software then you will almost certainly be able to change the resolution and have a number of JPEG options for saved files so they are suited for TV viewing. You could use this to convert unsuitable JPEGs if you wish.
    I would assume that there is no point going beyond the highest resolution around for Plasma or LCD screens hence my choice of 1024x576 even though I have CRT TV.

    Don't know about other DVD players/recorders abilities/limitations, except Toshiba manual implies possible need for EXIF.

    eddyad, thanks for you complete answer.
    My question is because I have a recorder, thus this is the 'right' forum... :D

    To me, there's no point scaling down pictures as the main use is to have them right from camera->cd just to have a quick look with family and friend. That said, I might use it from time to time.
    You are right: there's no point going to higher resolutions as TV (LCD, Plasma, etc) don't have a 'low' celling concerning resolution.

    To create a real album, I'm using specific software - Ulead PictureShow(thanks Kevo, I'll try Memories On Tv).

    Still a 'disappointment', as cheap players show up my 5Mp photos very fast. Not enough to get me frustrated, thought. :smashin:
