Writing CD/DVDs
Depending on the model, your computer is equipped with either a DVD-RW or a CD-RW drive, on which you
can play audio CDs/DVD videos and CD/DVD-ROMs, as well as create your own CD/DVD-RWs and CD/DVD-Rs.
To burn DVD/CDs, you can use DVD/CD-RW and DVD/CD-R discs:
The CD/DVD-RW (ReWritable) disc is a data memory medium that can be used to write, erase and rewrite
a program or other data.
The CD/DVD-R (Recordable) disc is a data memory medium that can be used to write a program or other
data, but then no more than once.
To achieve optimum performance when writing data on a CD/DVD-RW disc, follow these recommendations:
To make a CD/DVD-R’s data readable on another CD/DVD-ROM drive, you need to close the session when
you eject it. To complete this process, follow the instructions included with your software.
Only use circular discs. Do not use discs with any other shape (star, heart, card, etc.), as this may damage
the disc drive.
Do not strike or shake the computer while writing data to a disc.
For optimal writing speed, deactivate the screensaver before writing data to a disc.
Memory-resident disc utilities may cause unstable operation or data loss. Deactivate these utilities before
writing data to a disc.
When using a software application to burn CD/DVDs, make sure you exit and close all other applications.
Never touch the surface of the disc. Fingerprints and dust on the surface of a disc may cause writing
