Here's the review in brief: Don't buy this product. Spend another twenty dollars and get something that works. I bought it at Office Depot to take advantage of a coupon that, oddly, didn't cover software, so I got doubly screwed.
I couldn't get either DVD to play in my set top DVD but one (DVD+R) did work on my computer. The transitions have to be set for the entire show and not for each slide but it doesn't matter if they won't play to the TV via the set top DVD.
I really should have known better but I thought, hell, if this works for $[...] bucks I'll be quite happy. I'm not happy.
Trying to slow down the writing speed is a moot point as the drop down menu has one speed, "AUTO". Why have a drop down menu with ONE choice? Geez...
