Specs: Windows 7
I want to burn movies to discs from itunes. I can't find information on their site about burning software they may offer. The one I have looks so complicated I can't figure where to start. Mine is Cyberlink DVD Suite Deluxe (07). Plus I really don't need to upgrade it do I? I may burn my music to disc too if I find it easy enough. I'm hoping to grab up more space on my computer by doing this. There is also Windows Media Player on my computer which has a burning feature to it. Does anyone know which is the easiest to use with still good picture quality?

I learned that I have the wrong dvds to burn to. So that means I need to go out and buy the right kind which is DVD RW. I hope I find them since there are others with +RW and -RW. This process in this response still looks complicated. I just want to burn my movies for now.

But the other process mentioned here is for back up of other files. And I still find notices in the task bar to set up backup. I'm not sure what that all includes. Just files or the whole system itself. I tried it once but I don't know if it worked. Its even on those wrong dvds. Even reading technical things gets my thinking all jumbled. I can end up doing it but it takes forever. That's why I look for easy instructions. I know I can look up things myself but I find such complicated instructions that by the time I'm into the 2nd or 3rd sentence my thinking fogs up. I liked those very simple instructions I got in the past where someone laid out about 3 or 4 steps in plain english. That was just neat. Anyway I'll wait til I find simple straightforward answers. Technical jargon is just not my thing. That's why I'm thankful for people here who are into this. I hope people understand what I mean. I'm not knockin' anybody. Its just that I'm not one of the technically-minded type. So I can check for Best Answer later on sometime since it appears this may take me awhile. I still have to buy new dvds. Look so forward to what ever responses are coming.

Do not use DVD-RW or DVD+RW, those are rewritable discs and can have read problems in stand alone DVD players. Stick with DVD-R or DVD+R, most players these days can read both without any problems. There can also be stability issues with rewritable discs.

You seem to be getting ahead of yourself, you say you want to burn DVD video, then start talking about file backup. Slow down and take one step at a time.

phil22's link explains exactly what you need to do. Read everything in that link, then if you have problems, come back and let us know where you need help.

We understand you want very simple instructions but depending on what you are trying to do may take more than just 2 or 3 steps. Don't get discouraged, it may seem like a lot to take in all at once, but if you take it one step at a time, you can learn something new and have fun along the way.
