Step 2: Insert DVD Insert a blank DVD into your DVD drive. Open the Roxio program, click Select DVD, and locate the movie you wish to burn from your hard drive or external hard drive. Highlight the movie or select Add.

Step 3: Select drive Select the drive to which you want to burn your DVD, where your blank DVD is located.
Step 4: Burn Click Burn to begin copying the movie to DVD. A status bar will update you on your progress. When a message appears that the movie has been successfully burned to the DVD and the Cancel button at the bottom reads Close, the DVD is done.
