Windows 7: External dvd/cd writer question

17 Mar 2016   #1

External dvd/cd writer question

Hello. My husband would like to take pictures/music off of his computer to make dvd's and cd's. He had read somewhere about an external dvd writer. Is there something like this? I went into Google to find out more information but all I can find is different brands with no explanation to how it works and what you can actually do with it.

To clarify he does not want to put his pictures on a usb. He wants to directly get the pictures/music from his computer and make a dvd or cd. He wants to basically slide the picture from his computer and put it on a dvd or cd.

Can someone help me with this. I appreciate any help. Thank you.
