    I think the 3DO might have required some type of photo cd adapter to be able to use photo CD's.

    They might need to be put into Kodak's Photo CD format, you might not be able to throw a bunch of .jpgs onto a CD.

    Check this article on Wikipedia about the Kodak Photo CD format:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photo_CD

    Although most "photo cds" nowadays use JPG, it appears that the original format was a proprietary format, .PCD. My guess is that your 3DO's are looking for .PCD files, not .jpg. I can only imagine that the switch to photo labs giving CDs with JPG files was for ease of use.
