    I am not sure what forum to put this in so I did it here....anyways I went and download some guitar videos from a website and it downloaded through windows media player I think, it played through windows media player....First question - I would like to burn these onto a dvd if that is possible but have no idea how...second question - If there isnt a way to put these on dvd how do I delete them, I have looked all through my computer looking for all the stuff I have downloaded and can't find any of it...I am using Firefox browser and I click "delete" off the download manager but I dont think that deletes the file from my HD...Thanks to anyone that helps!

    No, it won't delete the files if you clear the download manager. Go into Documents and Settings and have a hunt around in there (or if you have any idea what the videos are called or their format try a search from the Start bar using the name (of the videos) or file type.

    To burn to DVD you'll have to convert the files to MPEG. Try TMPGEnc or winAVI.

    Hi,

    Open Firefox and click 'Tools- Options- Downloads' and find out where Download Manager is putting your downloads, then configure Firefox to download all files to the Desktop (or a suitable folder) in future.

    Also, to pick up on your DVD query, another file converter you could try is 'DivXToDVD'- it's had quite a few recommendations.

    Hope this helps.
