Howto Download from net to DVD
« on: December 29, 2008, 02:25:17 pm »

I would like to download some computer games from the  net to a DVD.  Can this download be done direct, or must I download first to my HD and then copy to a DVD ?  I would appreciate some info on this one.

For the sake of your blank media, I'd say download to HD first and then copy to DVD

I've had file copies fro network-to-cd-r fail on my local network... I wouldn't even try it from a remote, internet server straight to the burner. It's almost guaranteed to fail
