Instructions

  1. 1

    Install NTI CD & DVD Maker 7 onto your program by first closing all other open programs. Place the DVD Maker CD in the driver on your computer. The Maker 7 install screen should appear immediately. Click "Install NTI CD & DVD-Maker," and installation will begin. You'll need to click "Yes" to accept terms and continue. Selecting "No" to the terms will halt installation. Choose the location where you would like the program to be saved. Click "Next" and the DVD-Maker will finish installing. The program will automatically restart your system upon clicking "Finish."

  2. 2

    Make a data CD or DVD by first launching the CD and DVD Maker (double-click on the icon). The Maker main screen will feature a disk with six options: "Audio," "Data," "Video," "Photo," "Copy" and "Backup." Click on the "Data CD" option from the main menu, and the Data CD screen will be displayed. Two windows will be displayed: "Windows Explorer" (the above window) and "Data Track Layout" (the lower window). The above screen displays all files that are on your computer in folders and subfolders. The lower window will display a blank CD to the left and a blank window to the right. Drag and drop files that you want to put on your data CD from the top window to the bottom right window, until you've reached the maximum allotment that CD or DVD can hold. Insert a blank recordable DVD or CD into your Acer computer's disk burner. Once you've included all the data you wish to burn, click the burning disk icon from the menu option on top. The CD will begin to burn, as indicated by the program status bar.

  3. 3

    Make an audio CD by first clicking on the "Audio CD" option from the main menu. A new audio layout will appear. Drag and drop files from your computer into the lower right window while watching the megabyte counter at the bottom of the screen, making sure you don't go over your allotment. Import songs from other CDs or downloads if you like. Adjust the files in the order you would like to hear them on your audio CD (this order cannot be changed once the CD is burnt). Click the "Gracenote CDDB" icon to retrieve file names from the Internet, though this is not necessary to hear the audio when the CD is playing. Once you're satisfied with the order of your disk, insert a blank CD and click the burning disk icon at the top of the menu.
