Windows 10: No DVD Burner in win10 Solved

    No DVD Burner in win10


    After putting together some clips from my mobile and camera on Adobe Premier Pro, I tried unsuccessfully to burn the result to disc so it could be played in a DVD player. I have just learned that win 10 has dropped that facility (although I was able to copy a clip to a DVD-R disc and play it back on my PC).
    I dowloaded the Ashampoo Free burner but now understand that I need DVD authoring software to convert my clips to VOB files. I seem to remember that in the past, my PC would convert to files that looked something like VT_S or similar. Can anyone point me towards a burner that will convert (or produce) the files needed to accompany my movie before it can be played on a DVD. (I have also read a MS disclaimer that says third party software may damage windows - are they intending to bring out their own version which will be "safe"). I am okay paying if I have to -ideally I want one programme that will do everything but the facilities offerd by some programmes are beyond my comprehension and I am most unlikey to use to the full.
    Thank you

    You are looking for DVD authoring software. I haven't used it so far, but our friends at Google give us:

    I'm not sure which of the 5 free programs comes closest to your needs, but I'd guess that it's:

    Adobe Premiere has DVD authoring software included, called Encore: Overview of DVD authoring in Adobe Premiere Pro > Authoring DVDs with Adobe Encore CS5

    My Windows 7 before the initial upgrade to Windows 10 back in 2015 included DVD authoring software built in, called Microsoft Windows DVD Maker. It was clear from the release notes that, along with the Media Center and the ability to play DVDs in Windows Media Player, these were deprecated features that would be removed by the upgrade to Windows 10. I researched suitable alternatives before upgrading.

    To play DVDs I installed VLC Media Player. For DVD authoring and burning I installed DVDStyler, available as a Portable App here...

    Another vote for VLC here, excellent for watching DVDs.

    Hi. Thank you for your quick response. I downloaded the suggested programme and was able to produce the necessary VOB files. I could not get the burner to work however. Although the programme recognises my burner as per screen, my PC tell me to insert a disc. I have used both my H and I drives, and also tried DVD+RW and DVD-R, both of which are compatible with the programme. Bree ( a forum guru), also suggested using DVD style.I downloaded that but got the same result. I know that you may not be clued up on the particular software, could there be an issue with the drives? when I check the device manager, things seem to be okay. I just feel that I am missing a step somewhere. When I used win 7, I didnt think about what I was doing, it just happened

    In DVDStyler when you click the 'Burn' button you have three choices: 'just generate' (which just makes the file structure and VOB files), 'create iso image' (puts the files into an iso image that you can burn to DVD later) and 'burn' which will burn the files directly to a DVD that can be played in any DVD player. Sounds like you had the first option ticked.

    Hi Bree. My pile of discs is getting low. I followed your guidance. Initially I tried to burn without formatting, and then with formatting (on different discs). The progresss reports in the screenshots tell the tale. I also tried WinX again. I even got a 98% completed before it spat my disc out - see screenshot. Incidentally, despite me using third party software, I still getting messages from the Windows system from time to time think "insert disc" and "files wwaiting to be burned". How can that be if windows hasnt included a burner (or is it just a hangerover from Win7 that hasnt been tidied up

    I saw that question you posed to Bree so thought I'd 'horn in' with the info that I have used Win10 to burn data to DVDs and CDs from File Explorer and burn .iso files to create discs, just doesn't include a program needed to create video discs. I don't recall whether the feature in Windows Live Essentials 2012 will work on Win10 even though it is unsupported now, Mail/WLM will.

    Windows 10 can burn data DVDs. It lacks a utility to create video disks.
