Burning DVDs on Windows® 7
DVDs have become very popular in the recent past. DVDs can store about 6 times the volume of data that a normal CD can store and they are also extremely economical. DVD drives come with almost all new computers and there are no complicated procedures involved in using DVD drives. DVDs are ideal for creating data backups from computer hard disks as they can store very large amounts of data on the hard disk. DVDs also have the added advantage that once a DVD is created, the data on the DVD would be immune to malware infections and the DVD can be even used on an infected machine to retrieve essential data. Windows 7 supports DVD burning and if your system is operating on Windows 7, then users can either burn DVDs directly using the OS or using some other third party software. Nero, Ashampoo, DVD FLICK, DVDFAB etc. are some of the software that are compatible with Windows 7. Making use of third party applications or software to burn DVDs on Windows 7 is advisable as users would be able to control all aspects of the burning process.
Following details mentioned below gives users more information regarding tips to burn DVDs in Windows 7:
- Use multi-session option
- Remove infections
- Process not to be disturbed
Use multi-session option
Almost all DVD burners in Windows 7 support multi-session burning. This means that even if space on a DVD is not fully used, the DVD can be again used to burn data. All Windows 7 users are recommended to burn DVDs as multi-session disks (if data to be burned occupies less space than what is available). Burning the DVD in multi-session also has the added advantage that even if some problems do come up with the burn process, the same DVD can be used again.
Before burning data to DVD, Windows 7 users are recommended to scan the system thoroughly for malware using an updated antivirus program and remove all possible infections. This should be always done as presence of malware infections within the system might interrupt the burn process and also corrupt the data on the DVD.
When burning DVD on Windows 7, users must make sure that the process is not disturbed in anyway. Users are advised to terminate all applications running in the background before initializing the burn process as applications running in the background might cause errors or system freeze which would corrupt the burn process.
