How does one save 35mm slides on to DVD. I have Windows XP and Epsom CX7800 prionter,scanner. What kind of blank DVD's to buy?

The Epson scanner is not up to the job of scanning slides. If you want to see beautiful photos, rent a Nikon Super Coolscan 5000 professional scanner. It has features like automatic scratch and dust removal. It's not that hard to use. If you decide to rent one, email me and I'll send you a Word file with simple instructions.

You can save your photo files on your hard drive (probably in "My Pictures"). Then you can copy and paste (or drag and drop) them onto your CD or DVD. The type of DVD you use depends on the kind of disk recorder that is installed in your computer. If your memory space is less than 600 meg for all the photos, you can use a CD.

Or more affordable, buy something like a Epson Perfection V100 Photo. It has high resolution, and is easy to operate. It also has back lighting to illuminate the slide being copied.

I've had my Epson V100 for several months, cost less than $100, and may no longer be available, but I'd guess one can buy something else as good or better for the same money.
