Just use a good CD recording package like Adaptec CD Creator Deluxe - it will allow you to make Photo CDs (and VCDs), and handles all the file format issues, etc.

Hi david,

Thks for  your info. However I hit a problem on converting my existing JPG files to PCD file format.  I find PCD is the only format that accept for Picture CD creation.  Please suggest any conversion tools.  Thks!

Hmm, I'll have to take a look ... but as a quick thought, maybe Microsoft's Photo Editor (that comes with MS Office 97) can do this conversion?

First of all, thanks David!
However I check on  your recommended web page, it mention that "Kodak Photo-CD PCD" is read only.  
ie.
Kodak Photo-CD PCD (4)
(4) Read only.

Kookoo,

PCD or Kodak Photo CD format is proprietary and you'll be very hard pressed to find a conversion tool that will *write to* the PCD format.

In addition, you *cannot* make a Photo CD!! Kodak Photo CD's are special CD-R's that are designed with a signature built into the CD-R (really the *only* difference from a standard CD-R).   You may only purchase this CD-R from a Kodak retailer.  

If you were to have a Kodak Photo CD made, they will require you to purchase a Kodak Photo CD (Kodak Digital Science Photo CD Master disc) because their units will not allow writing to any other manufacturer of CD-Rs.

 Are you so certain?  Do you have a URL or some other reference for that?  I've never made a photo CD myself, but I know that this is very clearly one of the options with the Adaptec CD writing software I use, along with audio, data and video CD's - all of which I've made successfully with it.

Well I do know for fact that you cannot use a standard CD-R with the Kodak Photo CD Imager equipment.   You may be able to create a PCD on a normal CD-R using Adaptec's s/w but a Kodak reader will reject this CD.

If Kookoo is looking to create his own Kodak Photo CDs (using generic CD-Rs) for use with Kodak equipment, they will not work.
