Hi, I’m Shelley McIntyre from the Windows Media Center Marketing Group. I’m going to show you how to burn recorded TV shows or other recorded video files from your Windows Media Center library to a DVD. You can play these at home in your regular DVD player or on your computer.

First, start Windows Media Center, and insert a recordable DVD into your DVD burner.

The Burn a CD or DVD notification should appear in Windows Media Center. Select it. If the notification doesn’t appear, scroll to Tasks, and then click burn cd/dvd.

On the Select Disc Format screen, click Video DVD.

Now type a name for your DVD. I’ll call mine "Favorite Shows," and then click Next.

On the Select Media screen, click Recorded TV.

Click the TV show or video that you want to add to your disc. See the check mark that appears on the selected TV show or video file? That means it's selected. Now click Next.

If you want to add more video files to the disc, click Add More on the Review & Edit List screen.

Repeat these steps until you’ve added all the recorded TV shows and videos to the disc that you want to burn.

After you’ve added all the video files, click Burn DVD on the Review & Edit List screen.

Click Yes in the Initiating Copy notification. Keep in mind that burning a TV show to a DVD can take a while. The time it takes to burn a TV show to a DVD depends on a few different factors: the length of the video files you added, your computer system resources, and the speed of your DVD burner.

After the disc is burned, click Done. That's it! You can now watch this at home on your DVD player or computer, or use it for storage. To learn more, visit
