Help! How Do I Burn A DVD In 8.1?

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015 by | Filed Under: Quick Tips, Uncategorized, Windows 8

Beryl from the United Kingdom writes:

I watched your video on YouTube regarding Windows Movie Maker, making DVDs.  When I get the drop down menu there is no ‘Burn DVD’ icon. I have Windows 8.1  (which I don’t like very much!!)  Can you help please?


Beryl, you don’t see that option because there is no built-in DVD burner in Windows 8.1. You can copy data  files to a DVD drive as you would to a USB drive, but if you want to burn a movie to play in a DVD player, you’ll need to purchase a program such a Roxio or a free burner such as ImgBurn  designed for that purpose.  You’ll have to export the file and then use the third-party program to burn them.

    I think you can try some dvd tools. I always use Adoreshare DVD Creator to burn video files to dvd or dvd disc. Then I will send it to my father.
