How to write a CD to a DVD-ROM

Computers have come a long way from a single CD-ROM drive. Many computers now support both CD-ROMs and DVD-ROMs and can copy both as well. There are many programs that copy CD-ROMs to DVD-ROMs, but few are free. However, Microsoft has included an option to copy information from a DVD in its Windows operating system. The Windows copy process is fast and user-friendly. Instructions
Insert the CD into your computer’s CD or DVD drive. Insert a blank DVD into the DVD-Recorder drive. A box will appear on your desktop. Click “Write files to data disc”.

Enter a name for the copied DVD in the space provided. Click “Next”. An empty disc folder will open once the DVD is formatted.

Click on the Windows “Start” menu. Click “Computer” if you are using Windows 7 or Vista. Click “My Computer” if you are using Windows XP or earlier versions of Windows. Right-click the CD you want to copy from and click “Open”.

Press and hold the “Shift” key. Click on a file on the CD and use the arrow keys to highlight the remaining files. Right-click one of the files and select “Copy”.

Click on the empty DVD disc folder. Right-click anywhere in the folder and click “Paste”. A status bar will alert you which files are successfully copied to your DVD disc.
