Absolutely, any file on a computer can get infected. Why do you ask?

Lol nope less you made a copy (non-legit) of the disc and you had a virus on the file at the time.

If you have a virus on the comp on in the file yes. Scan the file you want to put on disc before you burn it to disk. Make sure you update windows on a regg and keep firewall etc up to date and you should be good :)

If a Virus has infected your computer then anything and everything you do after that is subject to infection. Sending E-mails, writing files to CD, putting them on a flash drive, everything.
