How do I make this happen? I have Geospots on the disc that I want to burn to and it say: Files ready to be written to the disc (1). I've got other Carol Reed games on this same disc that I did in Windows 7 but can't see how to do it in Windows 10.

You should get a pop-up when you insert the disc, and choose "like a USB flash drive" to add files.

Another website I found said to right-click the file you want to burn, click Send To, and then browse to the DVD drive and follow prompts to burn it.

Note: I've never used Windows 10 for this. I tried Windows built-in disc burner once many years ago (on XP I think) and quickly found a 3rd party burning program to use instead.

I use right click the file and choose Send To. Quick and easy.

Thanks Jenny. I think I have it now after much clicking around. I did consult a youtube video (the one you linked to, in fact) and also tried that "click send to" and it looked like it was going to do something but didn't so I closed that and started over. I tried that "share" option also. Nothing. I did not get a pop-up about how I want to used the disc. There are already games on it that I burned on it in my Windows 7 computer.

There is some tab at the top of the DVD drive window that says "manage" and "drive tools". I had to click back and forth on that several times. First it said something about "finish burning" but when I went back to where it said that, it no longer said it duh . I tried again and it was there so I clicked it and it seems to have worked. The game now shows up as an "application" on the disc and the remaining space on the disc is reduced.

Drac, I was typing when you posted. That "click send to" did not work. It sat on the screen looking like it was going to and was "calculating" the time remaining, but after about 10 minutes and no activity showing on my computer (no blinking lights at all), I cancelled out of there.

A new year; a new Carol Reed game; same darn problems trying to burn to disc. Took me a good hour to figure it out again but I think I got it!

Disc burning in Windows 10 is a pain in the (insert favorite expletive here). The "Send To" command might be easy enough for most situations, but certainly not for all. I use the free version of Ashampoo Burning Studio. It's much more intuitive. It contains ads, but I don't think that's a problem if you don't use the program on a daily basis.

Thanks Mikael. I suppose if I burned games to disc regularly, I would get used to it and not have a problem every time. My brain just doesn't retain this stuff for very long!
