Question about Acer Computers & Internet
That's easy; you can't format DVDs on anything. You can format DVD+RAM if you want, but you want to be sure to use UDF filesystem 3.5 or so. DVD+R and DVD-R are already formatted, and you can only write them.
Your Acer's barely up to the job, but it can burn at 8-12x, I should think. Athlon XP 2700 are the low bar for burning at 12x. What matters most of course is whether a DVD burner is installed, and it seems that it is from what you can do so far....
I suspect what's missing here is DVD recording software, which you need to make much use out of a DVD burner and DVD-R blanks. Windows doesn't quite do it itself, though it pretends to be able to format blanks and have a way to burn backups to DVD, nobody should try that unless they want to see what an electronic Judas Chair Simulator feels like (thanks Tycho of Penny-Arcade.com!) If you're on Linux, just pick the tool you like or find a likely recent revision using Freshmeat.net; on Windows, you would use Nero ( http://www.nero.com/enu/store-upgrade-center.html ) which costs around $100, especially if your burner didn't already come with it (usually keyed on the serial number....) There are free options too; just check Freshmeat.net or VersionTracker.com to find out the variety of tools out there and what they're for.
That is, if you want to make DVD-videos out of some video you shot, that's different from just burning DVDs; checking out what's out there and some of the books (perhaps by reading some on the shelves or attending a video user group in your city) might help.
