Capturing pics from a slideshow

I have a slideshow from a my recent voyage with some excellent photos on it. There is music in the background. I'm trying to capture some of the pics but to no avail. The slideshow only opens in WinDVD it will not open in Windows Media Player and does not seem to open when using HP Photo program or ACD Systems. There are some good pics that i would like to upload. Any help much apprciated. For info i did not create it, it was created by a shipmate.

If you're running MS Vista, try the Snipping Tool. Play and pause the video in Media Player. Then snip the screen shot you want.

In Vista, Start - Accessories - Snipping Tool.

Dead easy.

ive never tried this but i assume it would work. VLC media player should play dvd's. once in the player click "video" > "snapshot"

the image goes to some default place that you can change. mine goes directly to "my pictures" folder

download vlc player here

You could pause it on the required picture and hit the Print Screen (PrtScn) button then start an editing program, new file and paste from clipboard. Crop the result to the required bit you want and save as .jpg
Probably something like the "snipping" tool Brian mentions.

What is the file type (the letters after the dot at the end of the file)?

Could be you just need to open it in another programme? If you provide this information I will try and find an alternative approach to opening it for you.

If you google ".DAT file" it'll explain that there's not a lot you can do to extract the files.
You must remember to get permission from your shipmate before posting any of them on SN

I'm sure he won't, Mick.
Do you know what software he used to make it in the first place?
It looks like screen capture may be your only option.
Most picture manipulation programs that allow you to start a new picture file will allow you to paste "new file from clipboard". I've just done it with Corel's PhotoPaint and Serif's PhotoPlus. Then you can trim and save as a jpg.
Cheers
