Burn your movie to a DVD
To burn a DVD that you can play in a video DVD player, you need to have a DVD burner and video DVD burning software on your computer. Many new computers come with an internal DVD burner. However, if your computer does not already have one installed, you may find it easier to install an external USB DVD burner.

You can choose from a number of programs for burning video DVDs, such as Roxio MyDVD. Keep in mind that every program is different, but the basics are the same. These instructions show you how to create a DVD using Roxio MyDVD 8.

To burn a movie to a DVD

1.
Insert a blank, writeable DVD into your DVD drive.



2.
Click Start, then click All Programs, point to Roxio MyDVD, point to DVD and Video, and then click MyDVD.



3.
In the MyDVD window, under Menu Tasks, click Add New Movie.



4.
In the Select Media File dialog box, choose your video, and then click Open. If you want to add more than one video, return to the previous step and add more movies.



5.
In the MyDVD window, click the File menu, and then click Burn project to disc.



6.
In the Burn Project dialog box, make sure the Burn to disk check box is selected, and then click Burn.



7.
MyDVD burns your movie to a DVD, which will take several minutes. After MyDVD finishes, it automatically plays the movie. Close the movie, and then click OK in the Burn Project dialog box.




You can now eject the DVD and play it in a standard DVD player. Be sure to label it with a permanent marker so that you can identify it later. To burn another copy of the DVD, insert another writeable DVD, and then return to step 6.

Note: While most new DVD players support most types of writeable DVDs, some older DVD players can have problems playing custom DVDs. DVD-R or DVD+R are compatible with most players. DVD-RW and DVD+RW media are only supported by newer DVD players that specifically support rewriteable discs.
