Nintendo Wii has SD card slot allowing slidshow view of pictures in it, accompanied by lovely background music and attaches date/time on bottom of screen. Is there a Windows app that looks similar?

There is a basic slide show built into windows - go to the folder that contains the pics and select "View as Slideshow"
if you want something a bit more sophisticated but still free then you can use the windows Moviemaker to create a slide show http://www.windowsmoviemakers.net/Tutorials/HowToVideoSlideShow.aspx

Failing that its down to third party applications see
