How to use dvd burner

If your system came with a DVD burner, suitable disc burning software (Nero or Roxio are common) should have been pre-installed. Run the burning program and look at its "help" screens, or visit the company's website, for information on using the program.

If you've just put a DVD burner in a system that only had a CD burner, you should install new burning software. The drive may have come bundled with a program. If it didn't, CDBurnerXP or InfraRecorder are good basic programs, and both are free.

If you want to be able to author video DVDs with menus, you'll need other software. DVDFlick is a free authoring program that works very well.

Hope this will help get you going. Thanks for using Fixya!

My windows media player wont play movies

Try downloading VLC player, if this does not play your videos then it is your Drive that needs a driver update or has gone bad. If VLC player does play it or asks you to install mpeg2 codecs, then all you need to do is google "mpeg2 codec download for windows media player X" (X being the current version of WMplayer you are using). The reason behind this problem is that Windows media player does not come preloaded with a full library of codecs, there are packages of codecs that you can download such as divx codecs that will have the majority of commonly used video compression decompressors.

Why won't drive d open?

This is a common problem with old or poor quality DVD/CD players. Try going to My Computer, right clicking on the drive and selecting 'eject'. I this doesn't work then just replace the drive and all will be well. If the drive is not shown in My Computer then you must assume it is dead.
