    I have different files, and I would like to put them on a disc, so they wont take up so much room on my hard drive. Each folder of files has about 4GB so I'd like to put them on a DVD-R. Is this possible? I have a Sony thing that'll let me record to it, the DVD-R's and Nero. How do I do it? I google'd it but found nothing helpful.

    Yeah. Copy & Paste then use windows to burn the files on. It's called like a data DVD or something.

    1. Put blank DVD in drive
    2. Copy the files you want to burn.
    3. Open My Computer -> Open your blank DVD.
    4. Paste files.
    5. Burn disc.

    Here's how I did it on XP.
    1. Copy & Paste files to disk.
    2. on the left panel, it says like "Write these files to CD", click on it.
    3. Windows does it's stuff.

    I try to explore the DVD, but I get this error-
    That's probably because it's in the Sony recorder thing. BUT when I put it into my DVD drive, it just keeps trying to read it (I can hear it)

    Buy a new computer. This one seems broken.
