What version of windows do you have?

Vista and 7 have 'dvd maker' built in. The DVD's I made with it worked fine on TV's.

DVD maker came with "Plus" feature pack. Pack sold so few copies that people just got it all as a free download with vista and 7. You may be able to buy the plus package for very cheap though, maybe $10-20, but i have no clue as to actual prices or availability.

Believe it or not, Googles Picasa has this feature. I needed a real quick down and dirty Photo slideshow for a friends brothers birthday party and it work great. Selected the song and it automatically adjusted the time between frames.

So if you know how many photos you have and the length of the song, you can figure out what the time between would be.

I know for sure there are much better software packages out there for this, but my experience with Picasa was to good not to mention it.

Cheap too..

Best of luck.

I have been using Movie Maker since I had XP. The updated version in Vista was very good.
Movie Maker is the easiest to use and provides extensive free transitions, titles and effects.
Unfortunatelly, Microsoft decided to change MM on Windows 7 and they screwed it up royally.
They eliminated the valueble Timeline. Lucky that you can still use the Vista version on Windows 7 and get the Timeline feature.
I purchased Sony Vegas and it is too complicated and not as easy to use.
DVD Maker is free and comes with Vista and Windows 7. I created DVDs that play on TV.
