If you can in fact make a DVD Video from JPG (and other image) files on the 640, then that is a capability I was not aware of.
Yup, sure can.
I just got thru making DVDs of the family Christmas, which combine JPG stills and AVI video clips.
With my digital camera, I have two ways to get the files on the HDD:
1. Put JPGs in computer, then into PhotoViewer via flash drive, then copy to DVD from there (one of PhotoViewer's menu selections=Copy to DVD).
2. Record JPGs and AVIs directly from my digital camera's USB cradle while the camera plays a "Slideshow" of both from the camera's memory card. (For AVIs, this is the only way I have to get them on the HDD.)
It also copies the "SlideShow" that PhotoViewer creates for each folder in its file system. 1st pic draws on screen, holds 30-sec, then 2nd and subsequent pics pop up and hold, etc.
Once on a DVD, you can allow the Slideshow to play its normal way, or you can FF or REV from pic to pic with the frame adv/rev buttons.
