Hi I just remembered that xp doesn't burn dvd's only cd's I tested this by putting a cd in and trying to burn it and it did.
However it won't burn dvd's so I guess that solves the problem by the way I was using home edition service pack 3.

You can use a program like Imgburn to burn to DVDs.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I can appreciate your concern, and I too worry about the sites that I download from, and am even more concerned about the download sites that I suggest in these forum.

The site that I suggested downloading this from is very safe. The program is worth it if you wish to burn DVDs.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
