yes you can do this. do you have a burning prog or does your camera s/w give you the option to copy them. if none of these use picasa2 free down lod from google

Assuming you have XP
And the disk drive is a 'burner' Read the front of the disk or your specification of the computer.
Then yes it is easy-peasy.

XP has a 'built in' CD burn routine.
To use this simply go the the file where the data is stored and open to a reduced window.
Make sure you have a blank CD in the drawer.
Make your file selection and drag it to the CD drive icon on the desk top- or look to the left panel on the open window for 'Make a CD from these files'
And follow the prompts.

Making a DVD is similar but you will need a third part program to do it -of which there are many- some of which such as NERO - are bloatware in so far that they have lots of adds which make then complicated to use and sometimes unstable.
IMHO the best is free- download- click here pro
