Any application that burns disks should work. Just make sure to burn the disk as a "data disk" rather than a "music" or "audio" CD.

I personally use Nero 8/9 Ultra.

IMO Nero went to hell after version 7 and Nero 7 is broken on Windows 7 so I use CDBurnerXP now, works great, no bloatware.

Yeah - I have to admit there's no GOOD software for that...

Any software that runs on your system will do just as good a job as any other.

I think there's an update to Nero7 that solves windows 7 compatibility issues and its free to download on nero.com

scratch that i meant nero 8, but also a good option would be Ultra iso..

Nope this is what the site says: "Nero 8 has not been tested to meet all of the technical requirements to be Compatible with Windows® 7. Nero 9 has passed Microsoft-designed tests for compatibility and reliability on PCs running the Windows® 7 operating system. Upgrade to Nero 9 today for Windows® 7 compatibility."

And Nero 9 has a butchered and neutered Nero Express. It's disgusting. I have no idea what they were thinking after Nero 7. On the other hand, CDBurnerXP has a small footprint, is fully-featured yet basic in nature, and the layout of their audio burner is way better than Nero's.

Thanks to everyone for the replies, Nero was one of the programs that were giving me fits, but I see there is an upgrade to possible correct the problem. But I think I am going to try Ashampoo and CDburnerXP, and see what happens. Again thanks to all

Good day
Please explain in basic terms when using CDBurnerXP how to add photos and then the music so that when played with on a TV-DVD the Music plays while the photos are in a slideshow.
