How to Transfer Downloaded Movies to a DVD Disc

Updated February 21, 2017

You can download movies on the Internet from a variety of web sites, all with different video content. Regardless of the content, though, it is possible to transfer the information to a DVD. Once the data have been saved to the DVD, you can view the contents on almost any standalone DVD player (some older standalone players do not accept burnt DVDs) and computer system.

Insert the blank DVD in the DVD burner on the computer. Wait for the AutoPlay window to load onto the screen.

Select the DVD burning program you want to use to create the video DVD. Most computers with DVD burning software use ULead, Roxio, or Nero (all function in a similar manner). It only takes a moment for the DVD main menu screen to load onto the computer.

Choose "Video DVD" as the DVD format you want to use, and the actual DVD burning software appears on the screen.

Choose "Add File," then select the videos you downloaded from the Internet and click "OK." This loads the movie files onto the DVD program's menu screen.

Title the video in the title bar, then click "Burn" and the movie(s) is transferred to the blank DVD.
