There is no problem with JPEG (must be one of the commonest formats for images, and I have seen them on homemade DVDs).
I think the title of the thread has been changed and it isn't really about recording onto DVD, so my apologies for any confusion.

I scanned some images and want to make them available to an elderly person who doesn't have a computer, but does have a TV and DVD player. I thought - wrongly, it seems - that most DVD players would be able to show the images, just as if you got your photos put onto CD. Unfortunately, the machine just won't seem to see the individual JPG files...;-(

So I suppose I'm asking if there is a simple way of converting the images into some sort of slideshow at <sigh>minimal cost</sigh>...

I'm going to assume that the DVD player in question can read both -R and +R formats, so that shouldn't be an issue.

Sorry again if I didn't make this clear.
