One more way is to drag-n-drop media to the software interface. The files may be in different formats.

Besides video files, you can import a ready VIDEO_TS folder or ISO disc image stored on your PC to write it on a disc. You may add even an audio file or photos and the tool will turn them into videos to burn to disc.

Freemake can create & burn multiple movies or titles onto one disc free! So if you have many videos, please add them in the order you want to see them on a new disc.

Click “to DVD”

Now click the "to DVD" button at the bottom of Freemake freeware for Windows 10.

Then insert a blank DVD to your PC burning drive. If can use any type of disc media that you prefer. However, we recommend using media types like DVD-RW or DVD-R. If you plan to create two copies of one project, prepare one more blank DVD disc.

You may burn up to 40 hours of video content onto a DVD. In this case you will require a DVD-DL disc.

Select best options to burn video to DVD

In a new window, select your DVD drive as an output destination for your files. Write a name your future DVD disc in the title box. Please avoid special characters in the title.

Then click the grey rectangle box with the "No menu" text. Select a type of menu that is most suitable for your video DVD. It can be a text menu with the episode titles, a picture menu provided by Freemake or your own custom image. In the third case, please find a good quality image. We recommend you getting free quality images on photo stock websites. The menu comes without music.

Finally, select the color encoding data system (PAL or NTSC). The 1st one is spread in most of the European countries, while NTSC is used in North America and Japan.

You can also change the aspect ratio (16:9 or 3:4) and choose another audio codec (AC3 or MP2) for your video file.

Burn a DVD on Windows 10

The speed will depend on your computer RAM and program settings. After the burning process is done, check your new discs on any desktop media software or standalone home DVD player.

In case you don't have a blank disc, you can create an ISO image with your movie and burn it to a disc later. Alternatively, you may convert movies to a Video_TS folder. It's a standard folder that you will find on absolutely any DVD disc. As soon as you buy a new disc, simply transfer the Video_TS folder to Freemake and burn videos to a disc.

Please note that the resulted DVDs won't have any type of movie copyright.
