You need a dvd burner a burning program and a dvdr burnable disk to be able to burn a dvd
Burning computer files on a DVD can be a great way to backup your information.
Most one-sided writeable and rewritable DVD discs can store nearly five gigabytes of information, while two-sided writeable and rewriteable DVD discs can hold over eight gigabytes.

There are many programs available for purchase that you can use to burn a DVD.
For the sake of this tutorial, we will be using one of the most popular CD and DVD burning utilities Nero Burning ROM.

Read on to learn how to burn a DVD.
Insert your writeable or rewriteable DVD into your writeable DVD drive.

Click on your start menu and select "All Programs," "Nero" and "Nero StartSmart."
Locate the pull-down menu at the top of the window that shows "CD" displayed.

Click on the arrow to view the rest of the menu and select DVD.
Find the icons under the pull-down menu you just used.

Click on the "Data" icon. Then click on "Make Data DVD."
Click on the "Add" button when the Nero Express window opens.

Find the files on your hard drive that you would like to burn to the DVD and select them.
When you're done selecting files, click "Finished."


Select "Next" to get to the Final Burn Settings screen. If you can select the speed at which to write your disc, select the 8x option.

Click "Burn" and wait as your files are burned to the DVD. Click "OK" once the window pops up telling you the burn process was completed successfully. http://www.nero.com/enu/index.html

Ways to burn Discs with Finder and Disk Utility in Mac (versions OS X 10.4 -...


Without purchasing new disc burning software, there are actually 3 ways to burn CDs & DVDs in your Mac OS X system (Mac OS X 10.3-10.6)

There are methods using Finder and Disk Utility.

Both are easy to do and when set up to use will have you burning music, video, data, and image files (ISO) to CDs or DVDs in no time at all.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BURNING DISKS WITH FINDER

1.) Create a Burn folder and burn a CD/DVD

* The easiest way to burn a disc with Finder is to create a Burn folder with Finder. Here's how you do that:

* Click on any blank space on your desktop and in an instant, Finder will appear on the Apple menu bar next to the Apple menu icon.
• Click on File and select from the drop down menu

9696d88.png

* This distinctive folder will now appear on your Desktop

597c898.png


* Now insert a blank CD or DVD and in moments, you will see this window pop up:

b3dbf79.png

• Just click the OK button.


* In a few more moments
on your desktop, you will see this Untitled DVD (or "CD: for CD-ROM Disks) icon:

10ec18d.png


• Now you can either drag and drop files into the folder, or just double-click the folder and also drag and drop files into the open Burn Folder window

* If you notice, each file you drag (or copy and paste) into the Burn Folder window will have a small curved arrow at the bottom left corner of the file.
That is merely a designation that the file is a image of the actual file and ready to be burned to the CD or DVD you use.

e3c6169.png

* Notice the Burn button (highlighted in the red box). This is the button you will press, to commence the burn (or copying) of the data you have placed in the burn folder to be copied to disk.

• Click the Burn button, name your disk and that is all it takes. When the process is complete, you will now see a formerly Untitled Disk icon on your desktop replaced with a "Your_new_disc_name" DVD.

(Additional Note: If you wish, you can also simply bypass creating a Burn folder, insert a blank CD or DVD and simply drag and drop or copy and paste files into the open window of the Untitled CD as well.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BURNING A DISC WITH DISK UTILITY

There are actually two ways to burn data to an DVD or CD with Disk Utility:

1.) Burn a disk in Disk Utility

* Simply open Disk Utility by either clicking anywhere on a blank space on your Desktop window and Finder will appear near your Apple menu, select Go >Utilities and that will take you to the Utilities Folder which is the default location of the Disk Utility application.

b90ce30.png


* Or you can click the Finder icon on your Dock, open a new Finder window, click on "Applications" listed in the side window and select the Utilities folder

a166fbd.png

d3fca75.png


* Either way, you will land here.

b417a9b.png


• Insert your CD or DVD.

9974e96.png


* Once you open Disk Utility, you will see this main window

a4997c2.png


* Now all you need to do is click the "Burn" button located on the Disk Utility toolbar.

3017d47.png


* For an example, I am striving to burn a copy of my Quicken .dmg file to CD.

* Once I have selected the file, then I click the Burn button located at the bottom right corner of the Finder window.

4773cc2.png

* Follow the onscreen instructions to start the burn process.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Creating a multi-session disk using Disk Utility:
Now it is known, that one cannot burn more than once with a single CD-R disc, but it can be done as provide from the knowledge base of Apple support:
  • In the Finder, create a folder for the session and drag the items you want to burn into the folder.
  • In Disk Utility, choose File > New > "Disk Image fromFolder." Then select the folder you created in the dialog and clickOpen.
  • Type a name for the image, choose a disk format, and click Save. Mac OS Extended allows burning the disc more than once. Formats such as ISO allow burning the disc only once.
  • When the disk image is complete, select it in the Disk Utility list and choose images > Burn or click Burn in the toolbar.
  • Insert a blank CD in the optical drive.
  • Select the "Leave disc appendable" checkbox. If you don't see this option, click the triangle in the top-right corner.
  • Click Burn.
What is really nice about this CD/DVD burn feature of DIsk Utility, is that now you can come back later and add more files to the same CD without having to waste all the space on a new CD-R.

This especially useful, if the image file you are need to burn is small in capacity. Just pop the previously burned CD in your drive and add that file or files until that CD is filled to capacity- that is all it takes.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So there you have it, a quick tip on how to use Finder and Disk Utility to burn any data to your CD and DVDs.

Thanks for viewing my Mac OS X tip from FixYa Support. Stay tuned for more tips for how to make the most of your Mac OS X systems!

How to burn a dvd from an acer laptop


The laptop should have come with CD/DVD burning software preloaded. Acer's specs page for your model says it comes with NTI Media Maker. The program will have help information available to guide you through, and you can find more help online. If you just want to write data files onto a DVD, the process typically is not much more than dragging files to a layout window and telling the program to burn the disc. This gives you a way to back up data, or to store movies in formats you can view on a computer (AVI, MPG, etc.).

On the other hand, if you're asking how to make a video DVD that will play in a regular DVD player like a commercial movie, maybe with features like menus or scene selection and such, the process for making that kind of DVD is more involved. You need some DVD authoring software. NTI may offer that capability, but I'll admit I have never looked.

In most cases, the software that comes preloaded on computers is a limited version of some commercial product. The computer manufacturers get paid to include the program, and the software company hopes you'll buy the full version when you discover the limitations. If you don't want to pay for software, there are free, more full-featured programs available for downloading.

For general CD and DVD burning, I use CDBurnerXP. To make video DVDs, I use a program called DVDStyler. Both are open-source, meaning they are 100% free to download and use, and they both offer a lot of features.

I have always been using Nero burn software with my LG GSA-2166D DVD RW. Now I bought Nero Multimedia Suite 10. No any writing process has been successful. I have since yesterday spoiled 10 DVD's....


speed of source data is too slow = the hard disk cannot deliver the data fast enough and the burning process stops; this is a sign of a severely fragmented file system and very charged background processes: defragment your hard disk, stop using other programs when burning a disk and use 8X as a recording speed.
 Track Following Error = the laser head in the burner is no longer capable of following the track it has itself burned - the lens is dirty, clean it.

Im trying to figure out how to burn a dvd dont know how to do it


Before you decide to burn a DVD, it is important to know what kind of DVD you would like to burn. The type of DVD will usually determine the process you use to go about burning. The three most common types of DVDs to burn are Data DVD's, Multimedia Files to a DVD and making a copy and burning a commercial DVD. The burning process will be determined by the type of data you want to burn. You could do three possible actions:
  1. Burn Data to a DVD
  2. Burn Multimedia Files to a DVD
  3. Copy and Burn a Commercial DVD

Burning Data to a DVD Ordinary data such as documents, spreadsheets, database files and backup files require only general DVD burning programs. The data that you burn can be viewed on any type of computer with a DVD drive. Popular DVD burning software programs include Nero 9 and Super DVD Creator 9.8.8.
You will need to purchase or download any of the DVD burning software titles that are available on the market. For some computers that are purchased new, DVD burning software already comes installed and configured for your machine and DVD burner. You just need to open up your DVD burner software, choose to burn a data DVD and follow the instructions. You can usually burn a full length DVD (about 4.7 GB of data) in less than 20 minutes and even quicker with high speed DVD burners.

Burning Multimedia Files to a DVD
Multimedia files are usually larger files that include video either recorded from a TV set, camcorder or digital camera or downloaded from the internet. You may also want to convert an old VHS tape to a more user friendly DVD.

Copying and Burning a Commercial DVD
Many people use their DVD burner to burn copies of commercial DVDs. In most parts of the world, it is illegal to copy a commercial DVD and sell or distribute it. However, you may want to make a copy for archiving purposes.
There are many tools that can copy a commercial DVD. However, apart from the normal DVD burner and DVD burning software, you will also need special software that can decode or crack the digital rights management. It is also important to note that besides cracking the code and copying the data of the commercial DVD, you may need to shrink the file.
Most commercial DVDs are dual layer and have between 7 and 8.4 GB of data. These files must be compressed to fit on a normal 4.7 GB DVD. Once you have cracked the commercial DVD and compressed it, you can use ordinary DVD burning software to burn your DVD.

Cant make a back up of my dvd's for the kids to use. with shrink and decripter. when i do now it says, when i play it, it says no menu.


Step 1
Be sure to erase all data on the disc, if media is rewriteable, by going up to the "Recorder" drop-down menu and clicking "Erase Rewriteable Disc." A box will pop up on which you need to choose the correct recorder from the top menu, quick or full erase (best option), and a maximum erase speed is fine.
Step 2
Choose your recorder drive on the top right drop-down menu on the main screen. The drive icon next to this menu allows you to set advanced options. (Not needed here.)
Step 3
Click on the "Burn" icon in the middle of the main toolbar. This opens up the "Burn Compilation" box.
Step 4
Click on the "Multi-session" tab on the "Burn Compilation" box. Choose "Start Multi-session disc", if the disc is to be added to later. Choose "No Multi-session disc," if the disc is to be completed with the current burn. The other options are good at the default settings.
Step 5
Click on the "Label" tab on the "Burn Compilation" box to give the disc a title that will be seen in the drives list, such as Windows Explorer, when the disc is loaded. Choose "Automatic Disc name" and enter the desired name without spaces. For spaces, add underscores (shift+hyphen).
Step 6
Click on the "Burn" tab on the "Burn Compilation" box to set desired burn and writing actions. "Determine maximum speed" lets Nero determine the recorder and disc speeds, if they are unknown. "Simulation" performs a test virtual test burn to see if all goes well. "Write," of course, burns the disc. "Finalize disc" means that the disc will be burned, so that no more can be burned on it. (For the example, check the boxes for "Write" and "Finalize disc," which is probably already checked.)
Step 7
Set "Writing speed," if known, "Writing method" as "Disc-at-once" and "Number of copies".
Step 8
Click the "Burn" button at the bottom on the "Burn Compilation" box to begin the actual burning process and the "Writing to disc" window will open.
Step 9
Check the "Verify written data" box on the bottom left of the "Writing to disc" window. This will have Nero read the disc, after it is done burning, to verify that all of the data has been properly burned to the disc. This is an important optional step, especially with really important data. If all goes well, a box will pop up stating that "Data verification completed successfully."
Step 10
Run the disc in a drive or DVD player to make sure it runs correctly. If it does, the original files on the hard drive may be deleted, if desired.

We directly cannot copy a file from hard drive to DVD, we need a DVD writer to burn it on the DVD disk. Hard drive is a removeable device and we can read and write data as we need but DVD is a non-removeable disk and we can only write it for once, the process of writing or copying file to the DVD through a DVD-writer is called burning.

There are many different kinds of DVD’s, and knowing what kind you would like to copy is important before making the decision to burn. The process used to burn DVD’s usually depends on the kind of DVD but three common types are used the most when burning. They are: Burning Data DVD’s, Storing Multimedia Files on a DVD, and burning Commercial DVD’s. We’ll take a look at these three methods below.

Burning Data to DVD’s
The easiest way to burn DVD’s is by copying everyday normal data. This includes ordinary files like documents, spreadsheets, and database files and is the easiest method because no special decryption software or regionally specific encoding is needed. Any computer with a DVD drive will easily play these burned DVD’s.
It is a good idea to download some of the multiple free DVD burning programs available to test them out. You may also want to check out commercial DVD burning software available for purchase. Most newly purchased computers already come with a DVD burner and burning software installed and ready to use. All you have to do is start the DVD burning software, make sure to select DATA DVD as the type of DVD to be burned, then follow the prompts. A full length DVD contains around 4.7GB of data and can be burned in around 20 minutes with an average DVD burner. Higher speed DVD burners will be able to burn your data much more quickly.

Burning Multimedia Files to DVD’s
While the process of burning audio and video (multimedia) files to a DVD is basically the same as burning data DVD’s, multimedia DVD’s require additional thought before copying. This is because you will most likely want to add some extra features when burning a precious wedding video or converting old VHS tapes to a friendlier and longer lasting format.

The DVD authoring tools available today make burning multimedia DVD’s with a professional touch a breeze. Convenient features like Chapters (to skip to a specific section of longer videos), Menu pages (perfect for a wedding video), and Titles (to index multiple TV shows or videos already stored on your computer) gives everyone the ability to burn polished DVD’s easily. Subtitles that you create yourself can even be added by some DVD burning software and Digital Rights Management (DRM) may also be available. DRM allows you to create commercial grade videos that are tough for others to easily copy to another DVD.

Burning Commercial DVD’s
Burning copies of commercial DVD’s is one of the primary uses of DVD burners and is enjoyed by many people who own them. While it may not be illegal to burn copyrighted material for your own use, in most areas of the world it is illegal to make copies of commercial DVD’s to sell or give away to others. You can still burn copyrighted material, including commercial DVD’s, if the burned copy is for personal use. Some uses may include creating a DVD archive or backup, or having an extra copy available for use in the computer or car’s DVD player.

A commercial DVD can be copied by many tools, but decoding software specifically designed to remove (”crack”) digital rights management will be needed in addition to a regular DVD burner and DVD burning software. Besides copying the commercial DVD’s data and decoding any digital rights management, it is also important to note that most of the time you will need to shrink the file first.

The majority of commercial DVD’s hold between 7 and 8.4GB worth of data and are known as dual layer DVD’s. A normal blank DVD will hold 4.7GB of data, which means the larger amount of data on a commercial DVD needs to be compressed before it will fit on a blank DVD. After a commercial DVD has been cracked and the files compressed, ordinary DVD burning software can be used to burn the new DVD. Simply start your favorite DVD burning program then follow the prompts.

Since the process of copying commercial DVD’s can seem daunting to someone doing it for the first time, several companies have developed suites of DVD copying programs that simplify the process. These software tools will usually crack and decode the DVD, compress the files small enough to fit on a blank DVD, and can even add extra features before burning everything onto a normal DVD.

Now that you know how to burn DVD’s, you’re well on your way to burning your first one. Start by checking out free DVD burning programs as mentioned earlier, or just download one and jump right in. Remember to bookmark this article as reference should you run into any problems.

Have fun and happy DVD burning!

Best Regards

But If you want songs from website, you should download it first.
Unless the site is giving you a step by step how to burn songs directly to your cd/dvd.
Once downloaded, would be easier to burn to cd/dvd.
