This is going to sound really stupid, but here goes: My brother has a Dell computer with a Samsung CD-R/RW SW-248F cd burner and he doesn't know if it can burn video onto a CD-R disk. And he can't find any instruction manual.
I know that it can burn AUDIO, because I've done that before. But I want to burn some videos (that also have audio) from my RealPlayer program onto a CD-R disk and I can't do it. When I set the lineup to burn and press burn, it says "Beginning burn" and then it doesn't do anything. I've even left it alone for several hours and nothing has happened. It also freezes up my entire computer and it takes a long time to cancel out the program and get the computer working again. The CD-R that I have says that it is good for burning video and saving it (I don't know if it means video files only or actual video). It is Fujifilm all-purpose CD-R disks with 700 mb.
Can someone tell me if this particular CD burner can burn actual video or is it for audio only? And are the disks what I need or do I need some special video disks? If all of this is right, then what is the problem? (I tried technical help with the company and got nowhere.)
