    How do I burn files to a CD or DVD


    I've got a message to say Files Ready to be written to a CD

    But I don't know what to do next.

    I found the Burn Button but when I Click on it nothing happens, maybe I should have done something else first?

    Please can someone talk me through the process of burning to a CD as at this point I am lost

    Right click the file(s) and select SEND TO then DVD DRIVE

    Open File Explorer, highlight your CD/DVD drive and select FINISH BURNING.

    If you don't see the commands at the top, click on the down arrow in the top right-hand corner to show the command ribbon:

    Make sure you have blank writable media in the drive before you click BURN.
    That's it!

    If you're still having problems, you could try a program like ImgBURN. Just be sure you don't install any of the "extras" when installing it.

    Excellent! Thank you very much.

    Now I know where I was going wrong, I didn't highlight the DVD Drive. Doh!
