Copying folders to dvd

#1

I just installed a NEC ND 6750 in my Dell Inspiron 5100, in place of the CDRW. And the first thing I want to do is copy my “My Music” folder (4gigs). Why can’t I just right click>send to dvd and copy that folder? Or am I missing something. I get a message that there is “No writable CD” in the drive.Please advise. Thanks Bill

You need a proper burning app like Nero or Roxio for this & create a data disc. Windows in-built CD writer is just for CDs & won’t handle DVDs.

Gotcha, thanks for the comeback. I’ll have to do some reading. Do you have any sites, tutorials, etc. for a true NOOB? Thanks again. Bill :bow:

Some guides for dvd burning. You may also want to check out videohelp.com. The guides and walkthroughs there are amazing if you’re burning dvds.
