I'm trying to copy pictures on my hard drive to a DVD. I thought it would be as simple as dragging and dropping but nothing is showing on the DVD when checked on another computer. Do I need a program to write to a DVD or is this a simple file management issue?

Thanks.

My guess would be that you aren't closing the session. When you put the DVD back in your own computer - can you view the files?

You have to finalize the disk in order for it to be usable on other players. Otherwise it will only be readable on a dvdr or cdr drive ..

My wife was dragging and dropping in windows explorer. I'm guessing we need to use a program to copy pictures from the hard drive to a DVD. I'll take a look at Imgburn.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
