A DVD is an ideal way to burn data since it has a very large storage capacity, much more than a regular CD-ROM. You can burn movies, music, programs, games and documents, such as Microsoft Word and Excel, on DVD discs. DVDs are readily accessible since they are cheap and can be purchased in many places. Microsoft allows you to burn data onto DVD discs, with a few clicks, provided you have a DVD-burning drive.


Step 1

Insert your blank, recordable DVD into your computer's DVD-burning drive.
