    DVD Burning in Windows 10 built 1607

    Hi all!!
    Newbie here, first post so be gentle folks.
    Right moving on.
    Since the recent mega update, The way the windows handles blank DVD disc has changed?
    As soon as I insert the blank disc, the windows wants to format it !! Before you could drag and drop files in the window which appeared on inserting the disc and then you clicked the"manage" button and burn it.
    Now blank DVD get formatted and start to burn the file immediately.
    Any way to change this behaviour apart from pressing CTRL button which does stop it from doing anything.
    Appreciate some help.

    Hello, you might want to look at autoplay options in the Control Panel which allow you to configure what happens to each type of medium when you insert it.

    Windows key + X, click Control Panel, click Autoplay, look at Blank DVD.

    Thank you,
    Yeah what this did was to "don't do anything" on inserting media. Better than before a little.

    Good. What I do find interesting is that autoplay actually worked for you. Prior to the anniversary edition it seems it didn't, and still didn't for me after the upgrade without my workaround to make it function.

burning an ISO DVD
I burned one with Windows 7 and noticed it seemed to burn at full speed. Is it worth using a program like imgburn which allows you to select slower burn speeds, perhaps resulting in fewer installation problems?
