I think you need to first save, then burn. I've not tried though, good idea.

What do you mean by downloading data? If you are asking if it can be used for data archiving, rather than just a movie, then yes, absolutely.

And, the "r" means that it can be erased and re-used, again and again. . .

No, the R does not....they are write once, read many. You are thinking of RW, which can be erased.

OK there are some 4.7 GB dvd-r that I have seen.

From what you said, does this mean I cam download my entire C drive, capacity 40GB on these discs

Also with a Bluray burner and BD writable disks, you have 25GB per disk.
