PC users can easily access image files on a DVD by using native Windows software.

Though many people use blank CD-Rs to copy their favorite photographs to disc, a blank DVD can store a more comprehensive collection of digital images. After you burn the files to a DVD, you can navigate the copied images in Windows Media Center. This method will work for PCs with the Windows 7 or Windows Vista operating system.

Go to "Start," click "All Programs" and open "Windows Media Center."

Insert the DVD into your computer's disc drive. A dialog box will appear in Windows Media Center.

Click on the "View Pictures" option, which will allow you to access all of the digital images on your DVD. If you want to copy the digital images from the DVD to your computer, click on the "Import pictures and video" option.
