... which software did you use to burn to dvd?

... I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong; maybe if you burnt the files to cd rather than dvd the microsoft burning program may have worked!

... the last time I used Vista (ages ago) microsoft had'nt had that burning option to dvd only through a "third party application"

... waiting to get scolded (...ouch!)

Mavis007 You are almost correct but not quite. Windows Vista and Windows 7 will both burn CD's and DVD's with the built in burning software. Windows XP burning was CD only, unless you used third party software and ensured that you actually had a DVD burner installed (most of the XP machines came out with a CD reader/writer only).

As for the OP's files, I would suggest looking in the Recycle bin to see if they are there. If they were cut and pasted they may still be on the clipboard, if the machine has not been turned off. I do not know where else they could be.

I am a great believer of backups to eliminate this sort of misadventure.
