Why No Images are visible when image CD is being played?

Last Update Date : Mar 21. 2018

If your DVD player is not playing your picture discs, do the following :


a. Verify your DVD player supports picture discs.

b. Refer to your owner's manual's Getting Started section, to verify your DVD player supports picture discs.

c. Verify the pictures are in a jpeg format.

d. Verify the size and the amount of  jpeg files and do not exceed the maximum allowed amount.


Note : Refer to your owner's manual's Getting Started section, to verify the maximum picture size and amount of pictures your DVD player will accept.


e. Make sure the picture disc is created in a standard format, and not created as a slide show.

f. Verify your picture disc works correctly by trying the disc onother players.


I Burned A Picture CD And My DVD Player Cannot Read It

To resolve your problem, try some or all of the following:


a. Convert your pictures to jpeg files and re-burn the CD using jpeg files only.

b. Rename the picture files so that the file names you assign are less than 8 characters long and contain no spaces, underscores, dashes, or other symbols.

c. Keep each picture file below 1.5 megabytes.

d. Set the resolution of each picture to less than 1600 X 1200.

e. Use no folders (directories) on the CD-R/RW and to try make the disc less than 50 megabytes.

f. Try using a Kodak picture CD.


If you continue to have problems, try burning only one jpeg file to a CD-RW following the recommendations above. Test the CD in your DVD player to make sure the player is functioning properly.
