Need to know what Operating Sys you have XP, Vista, W7 and if 32bit or 64bit.

The program you want is probably already on your pc installed with the MSoft Op Sys.

(Different program to Powerpoint)

Don't burn to CD, instead burn as a DVD Video SlideShow.

XP, then you should have Windows Movie Maker 2 which will make a slideshow video in DV-AVI format. (it also does .wmv but that is lower quality). Save a DV-AVI copy to 'My Computer/My Videos. Follow this guide

After you have saved your video to file in 'My Videos' you can use the free program DVDFlick to convert it and burn to DVD. Follow this guide

Practice with just a few photos in Windows Movie maker, adding Transitions, altering the time pics are displayed, adding Effect and Titles etc. Save practice slideshow(s) as DV-AVI to My Videos as if you were going to use them to import to DVDFlick to convert and then burn to DVD using Imgburn (Imgburn also free is included in DVDFick download)

Hope you have as much fun as I do making them :))
