I have 16GB of photos on my phone.

How many DVDs of what capacity will I need to fit them on? What are the options?

Can I burn the photos directly from my phone or do they need to be copied to disk?

any suggestions?

    I hope you've got your math-hat on because a single-layer DVD is a mystical 4.7GB so after some intense division we can estimate that you need about 4 DVDs.

  • There is absolutely no way you can fit 16GB on a 4GB DVD unless you span it across multiple disks. You could use dual-layer disk but that only allows for 8.6GB and you still would need to span it. You could use Blue-ray but those are not DVDs.

  • @NabilAziz - The edits you suggest make the post harder to read and introduce numerous spelling and grammatical mistakes hence the rejection of your edit. Your edit wasn't really worth improving.

Well I don't think using DVD's would be a good choice for this task as Single layer DVDs can hold 4.3GB, while dual layer DVDs can hold about 8.6GB.

In this day and age you would be best of using a USB memory stick.
