If you need to write your collection of WMV files to a DVD, you need to learn the WMV to DVD burning process.
First, you need to have a DVD optical drive. This is a device that enables you to read DVDs and burn data onto them. You should be aware, though, that there are a variety of DVD disc types. These include DVD+R, DVD-R, and DVD-RAM.
Some DVD optical drives can only read one of these types. There are also certain DVD drives that can work with all the three types.
After setting up your DVD optical drive, you need to install a DVD authoring software. This utility provides the interface through which you can indicate the file you want to burn and the number of copies you want to make.
DVD authoring software are normally freeware. However, some that have unique and advanced features need to be purchased. Examples of DVD authoring software include Easy WMV Burner, Nero 6 Vision Express, and WinX DVD Author.
When you have installed the hardware and software, you can proceed to burn WMV to DVD. Follow these steps:
- Launch the software if it is not open yet.
- Load the WMV file you want to burn. You may need to specify its location by browsing through your PC’s folders.
- Set the destination of the file. In this case, the destination is your DVD drive.
- Choose the writing speed. If you are not in a hurry, choose 10X or 12X to ensure the good quality of the files to be burned.
- Insert the DVD disc into the drive and burn it.
- Confirm that the file or files have been properly copied after burning by playing the files in the DVD.
