How To Burn Movies To DVD In Windows 

by on March 3, 2008

Q: I cannot figure out how to burn my my downloaded movies to DVD. Can you please help?

A: I would suggest to move your movie files to your desktop so that they are readily accessible. Once they are on the desktop I would:

  1. Double-click on the My Computer icon.
  2. Double-click to select your DVD Drive.
  3. When the DVD drive opens with your disk showing, drag the files to that window.
  4. On the left panel of that window you should see an option that says “Burn this DVD.”

These steps should take care of the problem for you.
