How to burn my photos and view it on DVD player?
Insert a disc, launch the Data Disc compilation, tick “finalize disc” in the options, select ISO+UDF in bottom left corner, add photos and burn the disc.
My DVD player cannot play a DVD-Video created with BurnAware, what can I do?
Some DVD players are unable to play RW discs; in this case using +R or -R may help. Please note that BurnAware is NOT DVD conversion software, so video files will be recorded in DVD-Video mode but not converted. If your recorder doesn’t support video files, the DVD won’t be played.
