How to Burn Discs in Windows 7-aStep by Step Tutorial
While using older editions of Windows needed a third party software like Nero and Roxio ore other for burning a CD/DVD, but Windows 7.  Luckily, Windows 7 offers in built two ways to burn discs using Windows Explorer. This step by step tutorial explains how you can burn a CD/DVD without using any third party software. To burn a CD/DVD in Windows 7 just follow these simple steps
First insert a blank disc on your CD/DVD drive. A window like this will open automatically-

Now select “Burn Files to disc using Windows Explorer”

First you Choose a title for your CD/DVD and enter it
There two Options now. Option 1 is the “live file system”. Here you can save files like on a USB flash drive and you can save, edit and delete files on the disc later, but it will play only on Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7.
Another Option is “mastered” and is selected as the default. It lets you burn files traditionally – the burnt files are read only and you will not be able to edit or remove them.
Now click ‘Next’

Now another window like this will appear. Here your DVD drive will appear and a message ”Drag files to this folder to add them to the disk” will be displayed

Now position the above window to the left side and another window to the right side using side by side snap view. Now you are able to view the files to be dragged from windows explorer to be burnt

Click the “burn to disc button”

You may change the title of your disc and define recording speed.  But it is not advised to define the recording speed as it will automatically choose the peak recording speed supported by your disc.  Click the next button to begin the burning process.

Click ‘Next’ and recording will Start. A progress bar will show you how much time is remaining to complete the burning process.
