That's a great question!
DVD stands for digital video disc. Since photos are not a video format, they are not converted to a DVD. Instead, photos are converted to a photo CD, designed for use on a computer, not a DVD player. This disc will not be playable as a movie or slide show to watch on your television. It can be inserted into your computer, and you can download the files directly to your computer to store, edit, and share these timeless memories.
