Have an Apple? Check out our Mac DVD instructions.

  1. Insert a blank DVD-R or DVD-RW into your PC. (Keep in mind that DVD-RWs can't play on a normal DVD player. DVD-Rs should play just fine.)
  2. Download and install CDBurnerXP for free. CDBurnerXP is compatible with Windows 2000, XP, Vista, and 7.
  3. Open CDBurnerXP. You will see 5 project options. Select "Burn ISO image" and click "OK".


  4. In the ISO project window, click on the small icon marked "Browse..." and browse your hard drive to find and select the ISO file you have downloaded from Animoto.


  5. Make sure the correct file path appears to the left of the "Browse..." button. All other settings are handled by the program. Then select "Burn disc" and wait for the burning process to complete.


  6. You're done! Take the disc out, label it, and package it however you want. Animoto DVDs make great gifts and party favors.

If you don't already have a DVD-burner incorporated in your computer, or if you are having trouble burning Animoto videos to DVD on a Windows platform, we have identified free burners that are Animoto-compatible:

We recommend Active Burner or IMGBurn for XP Machines & ISO Recorder for Vista Machines.
