Slideshow: Burn discs in a backwards compatible format

Burn a disc

When you see the Burn a Disc dialog box, you'll select the With a CD/DVD player option, as shown. As you can see in the description, this is the Mastered disc format. By default, Windows 7 places the current date in the Disc Title, but you can change it if you prefer.
