making a music cd or dvd

  daisy2bell 13:17 31 Dec 2006

I wish to make a music cd, but instead of using a cd I want to burn to a dvd.
Every time I try it tells me only CD's can be used. I am using Roxio easy media creator.
Is there any way around this.

have you got a DVD writer in your computer?

Does your version of Roxio allow you to create DVDs assumming you have a DVD writer?

If you try adding MP3 or WMA files to your DVd disk instead of CDA or WAV then you may be able to burn the disk. A DVD with CDA or WAV will not usually play on a CD or DVD player.

Thanks guys. What I have got is a:
and I was trying to add mp3's.
The Roxio that I have is a free version. Are there any other FREE utilities that would do CD's and DVD's

I use Deepburner Free from click here
As easy to use as any of the others and, to my amazement, runs happily on Vista!

Happy New Year!

With Nero you have to select CD or DVD in a dropdown before proceeding. Could this be your trouble with the Roxio.

If you want to make aproper job with menus etc., try Audio dvd creator nota freebie but well worth it

click here I have Nero premium 7 but I tend to use this one the most, easy to use and despite it's name will do DVD's

Thanks Giant,Hertz Van Rentyl and Strawballs.
I have downloaded "Deepburner" and it worked fine.
Have tried the dropdown in Roxio, but will not work.
Have saved the link to CD burner XP
