    In order to make use of the pictures on a Kodak picture discs, (the type you get back from developing when checking picture disc box).

    What player feature/name/formate dose a DVD player have to have to play these still shots?
    --->DVD/Video?
    I'm just guessing & wrong likely!

    Are there players that definitly are capable of showing these picture discs?

    The newest Pioneer #AV-563A?, I belive mentions something about (digital picture slide show feature).....

    This is a whole new area for me, (picture discs) so go easy... :b

    Thanks
    Geoff

    ok, since no one else has responded...

    "Kodak Picture CD" is the phrase to look for. If Kodak is mentioned anywhere on a DVD player it for this feature. This is different from JPEG playback. And Kodak Photo CD is yet another product. Download the user manual it will be listed in there

    maybe the Pio 563 and the Panny S55 have this, I think many of the really cheap players by Apex and Mintek do (the 1600 definitely does).

    Today at Best Buy, while browsing for a DVD/VCR combo unit, I noticed a mid-sized (approx. 10" wide x 2'high) silver dvd player that had the "Kodak Photo CD" logo on it. I really didn't pay attention to the manufacuer. But the Kodak Photo CD logo caught my eye. Haven't seen that since kodak had their own line of players years ago! Hope this helps.

    Kenny,

    As previously mentioned, the Kodak "Picture CD" and "Photo CD" are two very different formats. What they used to make many years ago (and still do at a professional level) was "Photo CD". The current format that you can get when you drop off your film at a grocery store is "Picture CD". The older "Photo CD" is a far superior format (orders of magnitude better) and is not compatible with "Picture CD".
