    Extracting photos from slideshow dvd

    Hey guys,

    A mate of mine had his hard drive completely die with minimal chance of recovery. He had some of his wedding photos on there and afraid they are lost for ever.

    He has a DVD slideshow with the same pics on there, is there a way to extract the pictures from this slideshow? Just thought I would try to see if its possible at all.

    Cheers
    Aka - Gaston A

    It depends on how the show has been put together, if it is in .exe format I believe it will be very difiicult.

    You can always use the Print Scrn capture method to recover a low resolution version.

    Often the photographer who took the photos and put them onto DVD 'locks' them so that this very thing cannot happen. Is he able to go back to the photographer and get new copies.

    Hi latino. How important are the photos? I'm guessing... How old is the drive, and what did it die from? A couple of times we rescued data from "dead" drives, where we had determined only the control board had carked it but the mechanics were OK. We used another like drive, swapped the CB over to it and took the data off. After that replaced the CB onto the good drive and used the old one for magnets. You have to be dextrous. Just a thought, though. Am...
    PS. I forgot: drives are cheaper now than they were then...

    If the exe does not allow screen captures, you can do it via a virtual machine... there is no way they could block a screen capture then. However, the pictures will be in low resolution by doing screen caps so you might want to contact the photographer or send the hard disk to one of those recovery places....

    feel free to fix my shots and send them back to me!
