How can I save to a CD or DVD?

If you are trying to save files to a CD or DVD, there are just a few steps involved.

  1. Insert the CD or DVD into the disc drive
  2. AutoPlay should open the blank disc. If not, travel to "My Computer" and double click it.
  3. Allow Windows to format the blank disc.
  4. Once Windows has finished formatting, you may [drag and drop] or [copy and paste] whatever files you would like to burn onto the disc into the correct folder. ***Keep in mind the amount of space available on the disc and the amount of space occupied by the files you wish to burn***
  5. When you have finished moving the files into the appropriate location, you can chose the "Burn" option at the top of the window.
  6. The disc should automatically eject when the burn is completed.
