Capturing pictures from dvd

I have a home made dvd of which is a slide show of family pictures but I would like to capture certain pictures from the dvd and save them as jpeg. Any programs to do this. Also, the dvd plays on nero and video lan but wont play on windows media player for some reason.

Many software players such as PowerDVD and WinDVD will allow you to take a screenshot. I don't know about Nero, check their help file.

Have you checked the actual disc through windows explorer? Depending on how it was created, sometimes the jpg files are burned on the disc in native format.

So does WinDVD. WinDVD have this thumbnail feature that will show you which screenshot you've just take. As I only have PowerDVD 5, I can't compare it with later version of PowerDVD. However, I liked PowerDVD's capture interface better despite all that.
