Assuming that an image from a 3MP camera is compressed by a factor of 10, the resulting picture would be roughly 900KB, or 0.9MB. This means that an average CD with a 700MB capacity will be able to hold about 700 images.

Is it better to put pictures on a CD or DVD?
The answer is simple; a DVD is the better choice as it will hold more data than a CD (compact disc). If scanned from a print, or negative, photos will be large files, and a CD-ROM will only hold up to 700 MB of data. A DVD is designed to hold video and audio files much larger than the standard image size.
How many pictures fit on a CD at Walmart?
Walmart picture discs are compatible with both Windows and Mac computer systems. Each CD can hold up to one hundred photos.
How many photos can I put on a DVD?
Since a DVD holds roughly 4500mb, you can easily fit about 2000 photos, or around 900 slides or negatives scanned at 4000dpi.
How long will Pictures last on a CD?
CD and DVD The experiential life expectancy of recorded CDs and DVDs is between two and five years, though based on manufacturer claims, ten to twenty five years, or even longer, isn’t unprecedented. In any case, using very conservative numbers will reduce the risk of losing data.
Is it better to store photos on CD or flash drive?
USB Flash Drives Flash drives are less permanent than CDs and DVDs, since they operate more like hard drives. The best part about them is their portability. Consider using one to carry photos over to a friend’s house instead of a permanent backup device.
What kind of CD can you put pictures on?
If you are just making a permanent archival copy of a folder of family pictures, the CD-R is again the best choice. The idea behind a CD-RW is that you can sort of use that disc as another drive. You can put data on it, erase that data, and put more data on it again.
How do I transfer pictures from my phone to a CD?
Open Photo Gallery. Click the Home tab, and then click Import. In the Import Photos and Videos dialog box, click the device that you want to use, and then click Import. If you’re importing from a CD or DVD, select the CD or DVD drive.
How many 1.5 MB picture files will fit in a DVD?
If your pictures are all around 1200kb the disc will hold around 3900 photos. If you photos are bigger, say 1.5 mb the disc will hold 3072 photos.
How many GB is a CD?
A standard 120 mm, 700 MB CD-ROM can actually hold about 703 MB of data with error correction (or 847 MB total). In comparison, a single-layer DVD-ROM can hold 4.7 GB (4.7 × 109) of error-protected data, more than 6 CD-ROMs. Note: megabyte (MB) and minute (min) values are exact; (1 = 220) values are approximate.
Are old CD players better?
The ‘old’ CD players were generally more ergonomic than anything you can get today. You could isolate tracks and program them easily. Some would offer index programming (as if anyone used that!).
How many times can you play a CD before it wears out?
In short, no. Optical media like CDs and DVDs does not wear out from repeated use. It can degrade or become damaged, however. CDs and DVDs can degrade over time because their recording layers are made with a dye that is extremely photosensitive; it deteriorates when exposed to UV rays over time.
Do scratched CDs work?
Whether or not a scratched CD or DVD works depends upon the severity of the scratch. Because standard CDs and DVDs have a protective layer, these discs can usually withstand several scratches with no issues. However, a deep scratch or a lot of scratches can cause the disc to not work correctly.
