Putting pictures on DVD's

by skippydoodle2 / August 19, 2006 8:45 AM PDT

I want to store my pictures on DVD's instead of CD's. On CD's I only can get about 700MB of picts, while on a DVD it says the storage is about 4GB. Can I get 4GB of pictures on a DVD? Is there something different I have to do to do this? I have the basic Nero software that came with the burner. I tried to burn to a DVD, but it said that I had only 700MB of space, even though I had a blank DVD in. THanks for any info Skip

Is this a CD burner?

If it were able to burn DVDs, I'm pretty sure Nero would do it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
