This should work.. I use my DVD burner to archive photos. At 4.7 Gigabytes
per disk, you can hold a lot of pictures

Does your DVD burner have provisions to write your DVD as a data disk ? If so,
slect that and just move the jpeg files over as files.

Another option (if your DVD burner & software supports it), is to set the drive
up for packet writing.. Once done, you can format the disk and copy files to
it just like you would a floppy disk..
