I'm assuming you have a DVD burner

most computers will not burn data onto dvd's without special software. i know windows just recognizes it as a CD it cant burn. my suggestion would be to head over to download.com and see if you can find some free program that will let you burn your files. if you can't find anything there are lots of programs that don't cost to much that would work.

my personal recommendation would be to get Nero. it has everything you could possible want to do with a CD or DVD, but it will set you back about $60-120

You can use programs like Nero to burn data onto a disc such as a CD-RW. Since you already have a DVD burner you can even use a DVD-RW to burn your data

I can burn movies onto my pc & make a cd ,they don't work


it's because you are using cd to burn the movies on to and not dvd. your dvd will only read movies from dvd. I know it seems like if you put movies on a cd it should read in a dvd player, but since its not on dvd disk, then it will not play.

How can I burn pictures onto a DVD, so ot can be


If you have a DVD burner you can use the burning software that came with the unit. Maybe "Sonic" or "Nero".
Start the burning software and drag add drop your pictures into the "burn window".

Check your DVD front door to see if it says DVD Writer or DVD ROM.
If it says ROM, then it is not a burner.

Best DVD or CD discs is Verbatim brand (OfficeMAX, best price).

Home video on pc from digital camera, want to burn onto dvd disc?


Hello,
You can buy a USB-HDD unit and use it to copy over all your files, program files, documents, including JPG video. You can then copy them to the laptop. The unit is also a good way to backup your computer files in case it crashes and you don't loose all your data. Good Luck, RAC

Transfer Email to DVD R


Save the email to your desktop (File - Save As). Put the blank CD or DVD in. Go to My Computer and open the DVD drive. Make sure the window isn't maximized so that you can see the desktop. Drag the mail file into the DVD drive window. Windows may process the file for a few seconds. In the DVD drive window click "Write these files to CD". It will burn file onto the DVD.

A DVD CD burner came installed in my Emachine computer purchased Nov 2007 and runs Vista Just want simple instructions on how to use the burner. Thanks


To burn files onto a disc, all you need to do is drag and drop files onto your drive under My Computer. When you have put all the files there, put the disc you want to burn in there, go to My Computer, double click the drive, then go to File/Burn these files to my disc. If you wish to burn music/video CDs or DVDs I would suggest using more of a full fledged burning suite such as Nero.

I have saved a movie from movie maker and I have tried to burn it to a dvd. I see that it has saved it but it hasn't burned the movie to the dvd. How do I burn it to the dvd.


I beleive that in Windows, when burning something on to disc (be it CD or DVD), you have to go to the actual drive window (via "My Computer" and select "Burn these items to disc". From what I remember of the days I burned discs this then burns the file onto the disc.

Hope this helps!

Dont know much bout comps but i carn burn music from here but not dvds why?


Hi tanya - what are you trying to burn onto the DVDs? It all depends on what you're trying to burn and what software you're trying to burn with. It can also depend on the type of blank DVD you're using and what formats the files are in. Why don't you tell me what you're trying to put on the DVDs, what format the files are in, the software you're using and the type of blank DVD you're using, i.e. DVD-R,DVD-RW,etc. Also please tell me the make and model# of your pc. Seems like alot of info but it's not that bad. Don't forget anything and I'll get you going in no time. Thanks.
