Win XP doesn't natively burn DVDs?

Hi,
I'm new to DVD burning and just tried to burn a DVD using Win XP, which doesn't work. I can erase the whole DVD and I can burn CDs using drag and drop, but not to DVDs. Is this correct?

Thanks,
refi

Re: Win XP doesn't natively burn DVDs?

For dvd's it would be better using other programs due to copy protection and alot of dvd's are dvd9 and will need some compression

I would recomend trying DVD Shrink and DVD Decryptor which are both free and can be gotten at http://doom9.org

If you are interested i have a really simple to follow guide with these programs....just pm me an email address

Re: Win XP doesn't natively burn DVDs?

What kind of DVD are you trying to burn? Are you attempting to copy a movie, create a video or data dvd or some other? In almost any case, as the other responder said, a third party application, depending on task, will almost certainly be superior to the built-in semi-app in XP. I have it disabled.

I tried to drag and drop files to DVD+RW... but I think I will install a third party app that can do this. How do I disable the Win XP internal app?

In XP Pro go to Administrative Tools/Computer Management/Services and Applications/Services. Right click on IMAPI CD Burning COM Service and select Disabled. I use Roxio Drag to Disc (an app in Roxio Media Creator 7) for drag and drop services.

Use CloneDVD and AnyDVD to copy/backup DVD movies. Use Nero Reloaded to make specific DVD's of your own; such as for pictures or storing files.
