Putting slides on DVD would help store slides safely. You could easily put slideshwo to DVD disc, take DVD disc to any place, and extract slides off DVD disc on a computer for use freely. How to put a slideshow on a DVD disc? Can you make a playable DVD disc by putting slides on DVD disc? If you happen to have these questions, this post would be helpful to you. It offers you several different ways to show you how to put slideshow on DVD disc.

Part 1: Put Slideshow on DVD Disc Directly

If you just want to put slideshow on DVD for storing, you could directly insert blank writable DVD disc, copy and paste slideshow to DVD drive, and then eject DVD disc. It's easily done putting slides on DVD disc. In this way, you make a data_DVD disc, which could be read and extracted on computer, but not played back on standalone DVD player and computer.

However, if you want to put slideshow to DVD to create video_DVD disc that could be directly played back on standalone DVD player and computer, the simple copy-and-paste work would not be enough. You have to make use of another feature provided by Microsoft, the "Burn to disc" feature.


You could follow the below steps to learn how to put slideshow to DVD disc to create playable DVD disc via the "Burn to disc" feature:

  1. First, insert a blank writable DVD disc into DVD recorder drive and get source slideshow files ready.
  2. Copy and paste your slides to DVD drive. You could also directly drag and drop.
  3. After putting slides on DVD drive, open "My Computer" icon (this may vary due to different settings). You could see all your hard drives. Right click the DVD drive and then you will see a "Burn to disc" option. Click it.
  4. On the newly popup "Burn to disc" window, on which you could set "Disc Title" and choose "With a CD/DVD Player" option. After these, click "Next" button on the "Burn to disc" window.
  5. A new "Burn to disc" panel would appear to ask you whether you would like to continue. Click "Yes".
  6. After burning, click the "Finish" button to close the wizard. Now you have put slides on DVD disc and got a playable DVD disc of slides.

Actually, you could put PowerPoint slideshow to DVD disc and video/audio files as well. This method would not ensure you 100% success of creating video_DVD disc. If you get a data DVD disc in this way, please try the below ways.
