Remember, gosh, maybe a month ago when I was trying to figure out how to burn my photos to a DVD that could be played on a DVD player?? And after much research I found out I needed to either get a new program or a DVD player that played jpg files???
When Dan and I were downstate, we found a DVD/VHS player at a Meijer's store. Their return policy stopped us from making the purchase. There is a 30 day return policy...we have no Meijer's in da U.P. And I wanted this to be a Mother's Day present for Mom.
So, I wrote down the model, make etc and asked my sister (who DOES live not too far from Mom) if she wanted to try to find this, get it for Mom and we'd split the cost (it was $79.99 as I recall).
Mom called yesterday to let me know that it works, she could play the DVD that I had made and the photos were beautiful (all Mom's say things like that, right??). She said the photos were about the size of her 26" TV screen and no, being that size did not make them blurry.
She was thrilled about the VHS player too becuase she has a LOT of vacation tapes that she and Dad took over the years (Dad passed about 3 years ago) and her VHS player died. So now she can look at all those old tapes.
PROBLEM SOLVED!!! So at least now you know these DO exist and the price is not all that bad.
