    dont use +'s buy the -'r very few brands of +'r and writers can produce a working copy, memorex work good so does verbatim. Your dvd drive would need to support changing booktypes to even attempt to use +'s

    If you're new to computers, try going one step at a time.

    http://www.petri.co.il/how_to_write_iso_files_to_cd.htm

    Read that article. Google up more info for what you need afterwards. Remember, google is your friend and your fuckbuddy. =)

    EDIT: Always use Imgburn for .iso and other image files. The best burning software out there.

    Does imgburn tell you anything? If it won't let you burn, it usually gives you a legitimate reason.

    But let's start with the basics. Do you have a DVD burner?

    You could always just use a USB Loader so you don't have to burn your games.

    By the sounds of it you may not have a DVD burner. The second one is a cd burner, but that is no good for dvds. What is the exact error?

    exact error is when i go on IMgBurn the little thing on bottom (picture of ISO with green arrow pointing to DVD) is grey and i cant click it
    but thanks i think my dads laptop can burn dvds

    EDIT: When i click "format" it only gives FAT32 but on top it says 7.47GB. How can i get NTFS?because fat is working

    What Windows are you running...? If it's Windows XP or higher you should have it. If it's real old like Windows 98 or Windows ME, you won't have the option for NTFS. [​IMG]
