======================================
First...save your Movie Maker project in the WMV
movie format...File / Save Movie File...then you
need software to create the CD or DVD.

1) For creating a Data DVD/CD for archival (backup)
purposes...try the following freeware:

(FWIW) It's always a good idea to create a System
Restore Point before installing software or updates)

CDBurnerXP
http://www.cdburnerxp.se/
(yes it runs on XP, Vista, 7)

CDBurnerXP Create Data Disk
http://cdburnerxp.se/help/Data/compiledata
(the green bar at the bottom of the screen
will turn red if you add too many files)

2) For creating a Video DVD that should play on a
free standing DVD Player you need DVD Authoring
software. The following freeware may be worth a try:

Restore Point before installing software or updates)

DVD Flick
http://sourceforge.net/projects/dvdflick/

Be sure to read the Guide:
http://www.dvdflick.net/guide.php

If you have problems downloading DVD Flick...
try the following direct link:

or...
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/pr...dflick_setup_1.3.0.7.exe?use_mirror=softlayer

Save the file to a folder on your hard drive and
install from there.

To create a basic Video DVD that should play in a free
standing DVD player...try the following...

First...read the DVD Flick Guide to familiarize yourself
with the program.

Open DVD Flick and insert a blank DVD in your burner.

If your computer's Autoplay window opens....just close it.

Click the Project Settings button and go to...Video /
Target format...residents of USA...choose...NTSC /
Accept.

Left click the Add title button and browse to your
Movie Clips and select the ones you want on the DVD.

You can arrange them by selecting one and then use
the Move Up and Move Down buttons.

Left click the Create DVD button / OK / Yes / Yes.

Wait while the DVD is created.

When the text "Finished Successfully" appears you
may close DVD Flick. Now you can eject your DVD
and play it in your DVD player.

At some point you may wish to purchase more
advanced software like Cyberlink, Nero, Roxio,
Ulead, etc...but at least this is a start.

Good luck.
