I just purchased a new Lenovo computer with windows 7 to replace my HP that had XP.
The old computer had 2 trays, and I knew how to burn on that computer using Roxio. With this computer it has only one (1) tray.
I’m confused because some tell me to use windows media player, other say use DVD maker, others say go to start, others say down load a free version of Roxio.
What do you think is the simplest way???
Please help I’m really confused.
The simplest way to burn a CD or DVD is the way that you are familiar with.
I almost always use Roxio to burn CDs and DVDs. It is fairly easy to use, and for me at least, has a higher success rate than using just Windows.
Even though your new computer has only one optical drive, you will still be able to copy disks using Roxio. The program has the ability to copy from the source disk, then it will prompt you to replace it with a blank disk, and will burn the copy on the blank disk.
I didn’t find a free copy of Roxio on their website, but they do have a basic version for burning and copying for under $30.
