I'm not sure what program you're trying to use here, but in general your new computer will need a DVD burner built-in in order to do what you want here. Please let me know what program you're using.

Ok does your new computer have a DVD burner built-in?

Customer: replied 5 days ago.

Expert:  Cameron replied 5 days ago.

Ok thank you for this! Have you downloaded this software onto the new computer yet?

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
what software?
Expert:  Cameron replied 5 days ago.

I'm sorry but I am confused, you are trying to burn DVDs on this new laptop yes? Usually you need a software also on the computer to do this. This is what I suspected you meant by "Amirsoft"

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
no, I have already compiled about 6dvd with amirsoft and burnt them on my new pc, just was trying to print on the finished printable discs. amirsoft being an independent programme.
Customer: replied 5 days ago.
all I need to know is how to print on disc
Expert:  Cameron replied 5 days ago.

I understand. What you will need to "print on disc" is a different software that will be able to do this for you. You'd have to download this software and learn how to use it before trying to burn.

I think will be easier for me to just use felt pen and write in big letters!! and forget print I did lots on my old pc using Canon prog that came with printer.
Expert:  Cameron replied 5 days ago.

Alright I understand, I am sorry about this.
