How to Copy Files to CDs or DVDs with Windows 8

Type a name for the disc, describe how you want to use the disc, and click Next.

Unfortunately, Windows 8 limits your CD or DVD’s title to 16 characters. Instead of typing Family Picnic atop Orizaba in 2009, stick to the facts: Orizaba, 2009. Or, just click Next to use the default name for the disc: the current date.

Windows can burn the files to the disc two different ways — like a USB flash drive and with a CD/DVD player.

Armed with the disc’s name, Windows 8 prepares the disc for incoming files.
