    How do I burn files over to a DVD Disc?


    How do I burn files over to my DVD Disc?
    With windows 8 there's no "Burn" button when it says "Files ready to be written on the disc".
    Windows 7 was so much simpler, what do I do now?

    NOTE: If a AutoPlay window opens with the option to format the CD/DVD, then just close it.

    2. Right click or press and hold on the ISO or IMG file that you want to burn to CD/DVD, click/tap on Burn disc image, and go to step 4 below. (see screenshot below)"

    That option doesn't even exist..

    Insert a blank disc, in explorer click the file you want to burn, select Share under Library tools in the Ribbon
    Click image for larger version

    one way I found to do it for random files ,[not ISO or image files] I copied to disk was ,in windows explorer after you drag and drop the file to the dvd ,right click on the dvd drives icon and choose eject ,and it will burn the file to disk,before it spits out the dvd

    Imgburn is a CD/DVD burning program, not just an "image" burning program.
