Burning videos on cd?

Is it possible to burn video files on cd just as backup? Reason I’m asking is a friend has videos on his pc but only has a cd burner, he just needs to backup those video files, is this possible in any way?

You can just burn them as data, or if they are larger than 1 cd will hold you can use a compression tool like winrar, and split the files into sizes able to be burned onto 1 cd, and then put back together later. Hope this helps.

If they’re mpgs maybe he might want to look at the freeware version of VCDEasy. There’s a link for it further down the page. http://www.videohelp.com/tools?tool=39
