Ok I'm new to computers and would like to know if downloading pics from camera to DVD-R is THE SAME as taking my SD card to Walmart and having them put it on a disc for me. If it is the same would I then be able to take my home made DVD-R with pics on them to walmart and put it in their computer thing and make prints too? Thanks for the help!

Yes it is the same thing, and yes you can load them to your disc and take them to walmart instead.

Does it matter whether I put photos on DVD-R or CD-R. I'd prefer DVD-R..

Also, I remember Walmart, walgreens, etc said they could only put 200 or so photos on 1 disc so is that how it's going to be when I transfer photos from my computer onto a disc? I take pics in 10 megapixel mode if that makes any difference. Thanks.

It doesent matter. Not sure why walgreens said they can only fit 200. You could literally fit thousands

DVD - 4.7 GB
CD - 700 MB

DVD will definitely hold more pictures

It will depend on how large your pictures are in terms of MB... pictures can be anywhere from 1-30 MB or even more per picture depending on the file type (jpeg, GIF, PNG, Ect...). So it will vary from disc to disc in terms of how many it will hold.

Megapixels do not have anything to do with size.

Actually it makes sense now. Hypothetical...

"Oh you have 800 pictures, we can fit that on to one cd. That will be $4.99"

"Oh you have 800 pictures, we can only fit 200 on a cd. That will be $20 dollars"

One thing to check on is if the kiosk will accept a DVD.

For instance the Kodak support site only lists CD.

No but remember burned media should not be trusted, it's a good for an additional backup but you should have copies on another medium.

If I recall a 10 megapixel image is somewhere in the 6 to 8 MB range assuming you are using the "fine" setting which is separate than the size of the image. Even if they were 10MB you can easily fit 400+ on single sided DVD.
