Yes! However, the lab computers no longer have built in DVD/CD drives. You will need to check out a DVD drive from the Access and Instruction desk (or supply your own). 

To copy files and folders to a CD:

  1. Plug the external DVD drive in an open USB port.
  2. Insert a blank writable CD into the CD recorder.
  3. Select the files or folders that you want to copy to the CD by clicking on them. To select more than one file, hold down the CTRL key while you click the files you want.
  4. Click any of the following options:
    • Copy this file
    • Copy this folder
    • Copy the selected items
  5. In the Copy Items dialog box, click the CD recording drive, and then click Copy.
  6. In Computer, double-click the CD recording drive.

    Windows displays a temporary area where the files are held before they are copied to the CD. Check that the files and folders that you intend to copy to the CD are displayed under Files Ready to Be Written to the CD.
  7. Under CD Writing Tasks, click Write to CD.
  8. After the CD Writing Wizard starts, follow the instructions in the wizard.
  9. When the process is finished, the wizard displays a check box for you to choose to create another CD like the one you just made. If you want to create multiple copies of the same CD, click Yes, write these files to another CD and insert another blank, writable CD into the CD recorder. Follow the instructions in the wizard. NOTE: After you copy files or folders to the CD, it is useful to view the CD to confirm that the files are copied.
