How to Copy Files to or from CDs or DVDs with Windows 8
4 of 5
Tell Windows 8 which files to write to disc.
Now that your disc is ready to accept the files, tell Windows 8 what information to send its way. You can do this in any of several ways: right-click and choose Send To from the pop-up menu, drag and drop items on the burner's icon in File Explorer, click the Share tab and select Burn to Disc, or tell your current program to save the information to the disc rather than to your hard drive.
No matter which method you choose, Windows 8 dutifully looks over the information and copies it to the disc you inserted in the first step. A progress window appears, showing the disc burner’s progress. When the progress window disappears, Windows has finished burning the disc.
