Burning CDs/DVDs in Windows 7 and Vista

If your computer includes a CD or DVD recorder, you can copy files to a writeable disc. This process is called burning a disc.

You can use Windows 7 or Vista to burn a data disc, which is useful for storing, archiving, and sharing files among different computers. If you want to make a disc that will play in a music or video player, you should burn the disc using a music or video program. By default, Windows 7 and Vista burns discs in the 'Live File System' format, but you can also choose to burn discs in the 'Mastered' format. Type 'CD Burning' in Help and Support to determine which CD or DVD format you should use.
