I have two AVI video files which are 3.12GB and 3.56GB. When I try to send to CD Drive D by right click it says the files have already been saved, now it is saying it is encountering a problem. how do I find the files and burn them onto DVD disk please?

I am using Windows XP Home, and the files are 3.12GB and 3.56GB.

Just tried to burn the video's onto new DVD's which I bought this morning but a message came up saying 'The disk in the drive is not a CD or is full'

I am coming up against obstacle after obstacle and I am now wishing I never bought the handy cam and stuck to my digital camera instead. Can anyone help please?

Have you actually got a DVD Drive on your computer. If you do only have a CD Drive then that will not burn DVD's.

Yes I saw the DVD drive when i clicked on my computer, it vanished when I opened the CD draw and it went to CD-drive icon. Does Windows XP Home support DVD burners?

Does Windows XP Home support DVD burners? ....

Not on its own, third-party software is required, NERO is I believe, the favorite.
