In addition, where did you get the "Step Up" movie? Since it sounds like a recently released copyrighted movie, did you download it from the internet? Attempt to copy it from a commmercial dvd? If the movie is a copyrighted movie, our forum policies against piracy prevent us from helping you make illegal copies of such movies. In addition, if you have a recent version of Nero, it will eventually prevent you from making a copy of the commercially copyrighted dvd.

I meant that if you have several movies on your harddrive, you can put a number of them onto one.7GB dvd media as data files only. This way you can bring that file writings back to your harddrive should your actual burned movie cd fail later. The data cd is strictly to preserve the original.
Collapse, re: How do i write files onto a dvd-r? You should already have some type of burning software installed such as ezcd creator or Nero or somesuch. If you are planning to write to the dvd as movie files so you can view them in your dvd player personal or on your computer using Windows Media player as your dvd viewer, then you would open the burning software and create a dvd movie. If you only want to burn those files as data to a dvd in order to save them as files only, you would open the burner program and set it as a data disk instead. You won't be able to view the movies from that cd, but you will have them saved as files only, but you would still be able to view them from your desktop by clicking them and having Media player or whatever you use open. I normally burn my movies to a dvd type cd so that I can play them in my dvd player in the livingroom, then burn the file(s) again as a data cd (you can get a number of movies onto the cd that way). If i ever need to make a new copy of a movie because my cd has gone bad, i bring out the data cd, copy that movie back to my harddrive, and then burn a new movie dvd from that file on the harddrive again.

Data cd dvd burning software
Microsoft has a tool I just discovered ( kb305184 ). It seems to only show if it burns cd dvd's (not really specific disc types basically the stuff that would be on the front of the drive. If you in a strict environment this might be the best compared to nothing 1 for the nero Infotool, the was what I did years ago. Sucky you have to install it now opello mentioned ImgBurn, i can't apple rave enough about it (although recently its bundled crapware, but a guys got to make a living). To get the info in that you go to discovery, tools, Drive, capabilities. Sometimes the computer doesnt record the data correctly, and you wont be able to see the files you put onto the disc when you insert it into a computer. In this case, try burning the disc again but use a lower burning speed, for example, 12x rather than 48x. Burning at slower speeds is more reliable.
