I am after some advice. I recently purchased a Freecom Portable II external cd-rw, with Adaptec Easy CD 4. I saved some jpegs onto a cd-r disc and put them into my DVD player. The display on the player just said 'no disc'? I know that my DVD player accepts jpegs, because I viewed a friends holiday photos from a disc on it. After some research on the Internet, I see that maybe I need special software when burning the jpegs onto the disc, in order for the DVD player to recognise them. Can anyone please offer me some advise. I see that Roxio seems to be a player in this field. Also, I'm not sure if anyone can help but I am also having trouble getting my new external CD-RW to talk to my PC. It keeps saying 'device not ready'. It did work for a while, but then stopped. I have re-installed it a number of times and checked the driver too, but no joy. I even downloaded a patch from Microsoft regarding some USB devices not being recognised, but this didn't work either. Any advice would be much appreciated. Many thanks.
