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

Try slideshow XP:

"Create custom slide shows in minutes. Slideshow XP allows you to create and distribute professional slide shows for Windows systems. Selecting your favorite photos and sound files from your hard drive is an easy drag-and-drop process. You can preview your slide show as you build it.

Additional customization features include the option to add music, preview slides, set picture height or width, choose background colors, turn sound on or off, display in full screen, set slide-transition time, and add text messages to slides.
