Photo CD Problem

My parents have a DVD player that can "play" data CDRs, so I made them a Photo CD with roughly 500 jpegs of family photos. I didn't arrange the pictures in folders; I just "dragged and dropped" them all into the Nero Data Compilation Window at the root of the CDR.

I put the CDR into the player and a menu came up showing the pictures by name. I hit "play" and the CDR proceeded to play as a slide show - so far, so good. At picture #298, the slide show stopped. I went back to the menu and I saw that the menu only went up to picture #298. I tried clicking on the play mode, but I couldn't find any way to access the remaining 200 pictures. When I put the CDR back in my computer, all 500 of the pictures were there. Is it possible that this DVD player can only play 300 pictures per folder? Do I need to rearrange these pictures in folders and smaller groups?

I've never had that many jpegs on a DVD without several folders, so can't be sure. But putting them in folders is an obvious thing to try.

=D> Cowboy Slim Has the answer. I have Burned a couple of dozen CDs and have always placed the pics in different folders. It makes it easier to find your favs come time to print them!
