How to Add More Files to a DVD-RW


DVD-RW discs are DVD-compatible discs that can hold a measurable amount of data for storage. However, these discs are different from DVD-Rs, because you can erase data that has previously been saved to make room for new data or simply save more data to your existing data. As long as you don't exceed storage limits, you can add several more files to the ones already on the disc. A typical DVD-RW can be burned as much as 1,000 times.

  • Insert the disc into your computer's CD-ROM drive. Wait a few seconds for the auto-play menu to pop up.

  • Click on the option "Burn Files to Disc" in the auto-play menu. Click on the arrow at the bottom of the window that pops up labeled "Show Formatting Options."

  • Ensure that "Live File System" is chosen as your formatting option so that you are sure the disc can be formatted repeatedly. Click "Next" once you have double-checked the formatting option.

  • Look at the menu on the left side of the window to see your files. Select the files you need to add to the disc. Click and drag them into the large white space where the DVD-RWs files are held.

  • Press the "Burn to Disc" button to start the burning process. Remove the DVD-RW once the burning is finished and the disc is ejected. Test the disc in another computer to ensure that it is working and that the newly burned files can be accessed.
