    Default So frustrated!

    I'm serously about to throw my computer out the window! I have been trying off and on since this afternoon to get a slideshow of my digital scrapbook on CD to play downstairs on the TV since I haven't been able to print anything out yet. It costs like 50 cents or 60 cents per picture here if I do it 1 hour and about half that price to do it for 4 days. So here I am trying to burn a slideshow on cd to put in the dvd player downstairs or the xbox and nothing is working. I'm getting so frustrated...that and my internet keeps going up and down and has been all day long ever since DH put in a different network card. grrr!!! I'm going to call it quits for now and not burn anything else anymore. Either I'm not burning it the right way or the dvd player is being really stupid. I did manage to get playing on our computers but the quality was Sooooooo bad I couldn't believe it. The pictures and words were so blurry and I KNOW my pictures are like 3600x3600 pixels so that would not make it so blurry on my computer screen especially. Grr... I just needed to vent somewhere. I'm getting super angry at my computer right now.

    But I did finish DD's first year book. Now if I can only get it printed but I have to actually get someone from behind the desk at the photo place at the mall near here and tell them to make it a specific size because the biggest size i can make is 20x30cm and that's not what I want. I want 30x30cm I think. And I wish I could order prints online but this country is so bad about stuff like that. I can't order hardly anything online and have it delivered to me.

    I can totally relate. I hate my computer. It never wants to work for me. That's why I gave up digi scrapping. I need a whole new computer to even try to make pages. It takes me forever to make a new siggy. UGH!

    Awww, I'm so sorry. That would be totally frustrating. Can your DH help you tonight? (Since he is the one who switched the card anyway!). I hope you figure it out. I've done slideshows with just a bunch of files saved as .jpg format to a cd before (not DVD). They play on all of our families' players. Would that work?

    yeah i think i might have to do something like that but i have to put them in order first, change the names so that they are all in order instead of how they are right now. Oh well.. i'll figure it out someday. I can't wait to get them printed. Sucks that it costs so much here and it's not that easy anyway.

    that sounds so frustrating! I haven't tried anything like that with the slideshow, so I'm no help.

    and that really bites that you can't easily order the pages to be printed.

    With the pages being blurry, you may need to save in a different format. Not sure about the slideshow thing, I have the same problem.
