How to burn a CD or DVD using Nero

You may want to take some information from your computer to another. The best way to take these data is by means of a disk. You can store data into a disk by burning the disk. In order to burn a disk you should have third party software. Nero is the best in this category. I will show you how to burn a disk using Nero.
  • Put the disk in your recorder.
  • Open your Nero software (Nero StartSmart Essentials).
  • Select your disk type. Select whether your disk is CD or DVD. You can select this option from the menu situated on top of the window.
  • Select what type of CD/DVD you want to have. For storing data’s that can be viewed in a computer create a “Data CD/DVD”. If you want to create an audio or video disk that can be played in “mp3 devices”, select respective options. If you want to make an audio disk, select “Audio” or else if you want to create a video disk, select “Photo and Video” option.
  • After selecting the category, select “Make Data/Audio/Video CD/DVD” from the sub category.
  • Now this window disappears and another window open up. In this window you can add your files.
  • To add files click “Add” button on the right sidebar of the window.
  • A new window will appear. Select the files you want to add and click “Add” button.
  • After selecting all the files you want to burn click “Close” button.
  • Now you can see the files you have selected and the size used by the total files in the main window.
  • Click “Next” button to proceed to the next step.
  • You will now be in the “Final Burn Settings” window. Select your Current Recorder. Give name to the disk only if you want. If you have only one recorder it will be selected by default.
  • After completing these steps click “Burn” button.
  • You will now be in the “Burning Process” window. You don’t have to do anything in this window, just watch the burning stats.

You are done. Your disk will be burnt with the files you have added. The important points you have to look are that the size of the files added is less than the size of the disk. Select the burning speed to as low as possible. A faster speed burning can cause damage to the files as well as disk. You can burn only an empty or rewritable disk.
