Kodak Photo CD 101
Read about the basics of Photo CD. Find out what it can do, and how you can use it.

Hardware Support
I have a fairly recent Plextor PX-740A DVD recorder and it refuses to read Photo CD discs. If you find that your computer doesn't recognize your Photo CD discs, you might need to try a different CD drive. Photo CD discs do not adhere strictly to the standard for data CDs, so they can cause trouble. A reader has informed us that leaving the CD in the drive and rebooting works for them.
