Copying files to DVD-R

  KJ823 23:11 29 Mar 2006

I have recently bought a new PC and have Windows XP for the first time so still finding my way around! I also have a DVD writer for the first time.

I want to copy a load of files I have that are too big to go on a CD-R but I don't know how. I often see an option 'copy files to CD' but not 'copy files to DVD'.

Do I need to buy some extra software?

Suggest you get a copy of Nero

Hi Terryf
I have Nero 5 but that only seems to mention CDs?

If you open Nero Burning rom New compilation should open. Top left you should see CD click on it and you should be able to change to DVD.

Or open Nero Express top right you should find a drop down where you can change it from CD to DVD.

If this does not work and this is a new PC I would go back to the supplier for a more updated version of nero.
