Play the video in media player, click file to see if save / save as are options, if not, it is usually down to copyright and you will only be able to use media player to watch it

If save is an option, create a folder in my documents, click save and save it to the folder you created, when it has downloaded, right click the file, click properties and it will say what type of file it is

I right click on the file and i got the option to remove from list, play,Move Up Move Down And to Open Containing Folder. When i opened up the containing folder i was given the option to Rename this file, Move This File, Copy,This File or Email This File


Not sure what that means in the grand scheme of things

You have Nero

Click start smart to get this

[attachment=6286:attachment]

Click make dvd video

[attachment=6287:attachment]

Click the magnifying glass then click browse

[attachment=6288:attachment]

Choose the file, then click the + to add it to the time line, click export, name the file, click export

The file will be saved to Nero Vision, exported video

Open start smart, click make dvd video, click add video files, add the file from Nero exported video, click next etc and it will burn to disc

You will need to use a DVDR disc usually, because of the file size, if it isn't too big, make sure multi session is selected so you can add other video the same way

Ok i'm totally lost

First i can't pull up that screen the screen i pull up gives me the option to make a wma DVD

And it also gives a option to burn DVD files


After i clicked on both items i got a screen that wouldn't allow me to browse my computer for files all it asked me to do was to add files,and when i did select a folder it said that the file was not compatible
