Transfer video file from hard drive to DVD

by pcnewbie / November 15, 2006 11:30 AM PST

I have some videos in my hard drive and wante to transfer them to a DVD(rewritable) on my laptop. What kind of software do I need to be able to do it(if I need one at all)? Is there a source on the internet where I can go to read/copy the instruction? I have Windows XP.

Do you want them to play like a regular DVD? If so check out Nero Burning Rom. You can get it at

It's fairly simple to use and the program does A LOT including video editing.

If you intend to use the DVD only as a storage, then CDXPBurner pro does the job, and its freeware.
