how to burn a completed project

I've created a Windows live Movie Maker a slide show with music, transitions, etc and am ready to burn it to a DVD to play on a TV. I cannot find the option to do it (my last Windows platform was XP which had a burn section). How do I accomplish this in Windows or is there another program I should be using? Thanks!

..or 'save to dvd'?

have you already got a video_ts folder on your hard-drive?

if so, use any burning tool to stick it (the whole folder) onto a blank dvd...

Thanks Angelo
I was just about to download and install WMM 11 but didn't really want to. I presume the procedure will be the same for this version as earlier versions?

Agreed but when you create the VIDEO_TS folder you should also see a folder named AUDIO_TS. It is important to burn that as well to your DVD. Although this folder will be empty many DVD players need to "see" that folder to recognise the DVD.
I think WMM 11 is the one without a timeline, everything has to be done in storyboard view. I can't get along with that. To me a video editor without a timeline is like a cycle with no chain!

What version of Windows 7 have you? Have just noticed this note on a Microsoft site
"DVD burning in Movie Maker is dependent on Windows DVD Maker, which is only available in Windows 7 Home Premium, Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Enterprise, Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows Vista Home Premium, and Windows Vista Ultimate editions. "

In case your Version doesn't allow for DVD burning, you need an app to create a working DVD structure, like mickey mentioned. A very Basic, fairly straight forward and free program you can find here
DVD Flick
or another one here
Free DVD Creator: Create & Burn DVD from AVI DivX MPEG WMV MP4 to DVD.
