Often, watching videos is much more convenient onTV, rather than on a computer monitor, so users prefer to rewrite movies on DVD-RW discs - good, almost any PC user can do it today.
Check if your drive has a write function. Typically, this can be determined by engraving on the cover of the drive: DVD-RW. If the cover is covered with something, or there are basically no marks on it, then check the device name in the system. If you open the "My Computer" menu, the DVD-rom is marked as DWD-RW, then it has a recording function. In extreme cases, insert a "blank" (an empty DVD disc) into the drive and right-click on it. If you see the signature "write files to disk", then you are able to do this.
Purchase an empty DVD-RW disc. As mentioned above, it is called in the people "dummy". Pay attention to the volume of the disc when buying - this parameter takes completely different values due to different manufacturers and different recording methods (in particular "double layer" DVDs). Therefore, make sure that the size of the recorded file is less than or equal to the volume of the disc.
Recording can be done both with meansWindows, and with the help of third-party programs. It is worth noting that the recording function on Windows XP is designed very unsuccessfully and on many computers it is unstable: it is better to prefer specialized software. Windows 7, by contrast, offers a very fast and high-quality system for working with disks, which, as a rule, does not cause censures. However, if you plan to use the recording function on a regular basis, it's best to still prefer "Nero: burning rom" - the most famous program for working with RW, which guarantees quality.
When recording movies, pay attention to the fileSystem of the future disk. In simple terms, files can be written in different ways. If you want to transfer the movie to another computer and look there, then the "normal" version of the recording is quite suitable. If you want to insert the disc into a DVD player, you should also record it in a special way ("Create a CD for the video player"). In this case, there will be no more free space on the disc and it will be recognized only as the medium of the video file.
